This is an undated Ben Zuckerman suit in grey. The skirt is fairly basic, straight and simple. The jacket is the star- double breasted with a flair at the rear. It has a astrakhan scarf that ties at the neck. I am fortunate enough to own this suit and can attest to the quality of the fabrics and tailoring.
Astrakhan is  the tightly curled fleece of the fetal or newborn karakul lamb. It is a luxurious and expensive fur and its use dates back hundreds of years.
