I've been sitting here staring at this image for a couple of minutes wondering what to say. But do I need to say anything except this is One Perfect Coat? The black and white stylized zebra stripe. The fit-and-flare cut. The full sleeves that narrow towards the cuff. The big pockets. The turn of the collar. Yep, One Perfect Coat! Pierre Balmain, Fall 1952.
