This is a wonderful Ben Zuckerman suit jacket in brown tweedy wool, once part of a suit.
The jacket illustrates perfectly what a wonderful tailor Ben Zuckerman was. The jacket has beautifully set in sleeves, which is quite a skill to do correctly. All the button holes are bound and the collar rolls over perfectly. There are hidden pockets in a seam near the waist.
This jacket was sold at Edward Hurwitch, Hartford, which was a smaller boutique type store that was located on Pratt Street in Hartford. This street was home to many high end stores, selling hats, lingerie, shoes and other fine ladies items.  Sadly it is no longer in operation.
