This spectacular Ben Zuckerman coat, dating from the 1950's, is an absolute beauty. It is made of thick grey wool, and is what is known as a swing or clutch coat. This coat was perfect for wearing over the voluminous dresses of the day. It didn't have any closures, as the wearer would hold it closed with her hands.
This coat trimmed around the edges with a slight 'puffed' effect, also seen in the suit below. The coat also has patch pockets.
