Narrow waist? as in Saville Row? Not in the US or at least not in the Northeast. In the sixties, at least the early sixties in the US the Ivy League style predominated, in a pure form, e.g.. Brooks Bros, J.Press, Norman Hilton , Chipp, etc or derivative. Most men wore derivations. Not quite natural shoulders but narrowish lapels,three buttons and a center vent. There was a " continental style" that was popular with show biz typesthat was more "flashy" and usually...

Relaxed compared to where else in the Bay Area?I go several times a season and attend numerous other Classicalconcert and the SF Opera is by far the dressiest music venue.
They finally got in on the short, tight "slim fit" band wagon maybe five years into the fad. Leave it to BB, for the past couple of decades the firm has half-heartedly embraced fashion trends while at the same time gradually abandoning the high quality conservative styles that made them famous.

I have a coat not the same cut , but a Balmacaan. I have had it for over 20 years but as I live in CA I never wear it. I did January 2014 in New York when it was about 10 degrees F.
