Two sets of "menswear suiting coordinates" featured in the 1984 Parsons School of Design annual fashion show, in which Jacobs won the J.C. Penney Student Designer-of-the-Year Award. As indicated on the front side of the illustration, these designs also won the Chester Weinberg award. The back of the illustration includes information about the materials used and their prices. Four fabric samples are attached to the front, which are mostly in neutral shades with light pink accents.
