Fred Astaire'double breasteds were all tranformables (see his movies),and were from Anderson & Sheppard in London and...
No,is a transformable double breasted.(see the link below):https://www.facebook.com/LRubinacci/videos/1834285013467654/ P.S.The true pure 6x1 is not a 80s thing,but exist from 40s at least.
