This Ben Zuckerman coat, dating from the 1960's is a wonderful example of the master tailor Zuckerman was. The coat is in a neutral grey wool, heavy and substantial. It is double breasted with simple black buttons and a half belt in the rear. This coat is such a classic that it really doesn't date- it still looks fresh 50 years after it was made.
You can get an idea of the tailoring involved in a Zuckerman in the interior shot of the coat- interfacing to give the coat body and an invisible hem.
