This is a Ben Zuckerman ensemble,dating from the 1960's and retailed at the famous New York Store, Saks Fifth Avenue. My guess is that it would have cost in the region of $500 which represents a significant investment, and priced it out of the range of most women of the time.
The jacket is boxy in cut, has two pockets at the hip, and is trimmed in Chinchilla fur. The buttons are large and are covered in embroidery thread. The matching dress is sleeveless and fitted and has the same buttons as the jacket, but in a slightly smaller size. The quality of this ensemble is top notch.
