This is a Ben Zuckerman coat, dating from 1951 was photographed by Richard Avedon.
It's a real beauty, in grey tweed with very large lapels, and pale fold-back cuffs. The coat doesn't have any buttons or fastenings, which makes this a clutch coat, a very popular style at this time. The wearer would 'clutch' the coat closed when needed.
