Here we have a 1960's Ben Zuckerman suit in black wool. The jacket of the suit is trimmed at the collar and lapel in mink and the skirt is a standard Ben Zuckerman skirt, with a band at the waist, and a slight a-line shape.
The material has a really interesting texture to it. Quite possibly this material was made especially for Ben Zuckerman as was often the case at this time for high end designers.
The suit was sold at Jenny of Cincinnati, more properly known as Gidding- Jenny, the crown jewel of the Cincinnati department stores, which is sadly no longer in existence.
