This is a really lovely and modern looking Ben Zuckerman suit, which dates from the mid 1960's. It is camel coloured wool and has a skirt with a slight A-line. The jacket is really outstanding- it has loads of buttons that look almost like jewellery. The collar of the jacket is a mandarin collar, which is defined as a short unfolded stand-up collar which start at the neckline and typically rise vertically two to five centimetres. The style originated from Western interpretation of dresses worn by Mandarins in Imperial China.
