From 1951- a super Ben Zuckerman suit, designed by Fernando Bosc. Bosc was the artist of choice for Zuckerman ads, so I'm not sure if he actually designed this suit or just the picture of it. Harry Shacter was the usual designer at Ben Zuckerman.

This suit was the height of fashion in 1951- the waist is tiny, and the hips are accented by buttons, all the better to call attention to the hourglass silhouette. The model carries a fur stole- probably mink, which was de rigueur in 1951.
