From 1948, a Zuckerman and Kraus suit. This suit dates from before Ben Zuckerman created his own company.
This suit combines velvet and broadcloth. The majority of the suit is the woolen broadcloth, probably in black and there is trimming at the hip in velvet, likely black as well. This is very early 'New Look', with the full skirt, nipped waist and softly sloping shoulders, so different from the looks worn during World War II.
