This is a mid to late 1950's Ben Zuckerman suit in rich black velvet. The suit jacket is double breasted with large gilt buttons and a bow tie at the neckline. The skirt features double zips at each side- a feature I have seen in couture garments.

This suit was retailed at Amelia Gray, a boutique opened in 1952 in Beverley Hills, California. The store was located on Rodeo Drive, and was usually the case with any store that sold Ben Zuckermans, the store sold only the finest clothing and accessories.
