From a 1950's magazine- an advertisement for a Zuckerman coat sold at I Magnins.

The text reads 'We like the look of easy elegance... as in this coat by Ben Zuckerman, curved cut of misty, mustardy plaid wool, light as down, from our Magnin-exclusive coat selection.'

This coat is what would be termed as a swing coat. The coat is very voluminous, wide enough to cover the full skirts of the mid 1950's. The sleeves end at the elbow, perfect for displaying the gloves that were de rigur for that era.
