I think whatever pulling is visible on Cary Grant's DB is more an artifact of the material (linen I presume?) than of poor fit.

He seems to have plenty of room in the shoulders and chest.

I ran across another photo of Dali and Man Ray. Check out those lapels. I love the 30s-style unstructured jackets and floppy shirt collars.

I have it on good authority that at that time there was a highly secret race to produce a practical collar stay
between future World War II combatants Britain/France and German/Italy.

BTW, at the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco there is a current exhibition on Man Ray (and Lee Miller).

Also, I met Salvador Dali at a bar in New York on New Years Eve about forty years ago.
He was wearing a silk-lined evening cape and exuded Continental politesse.

The 1970s were a horror show for clothes in many ways, but I like this image from the Morecambe and Wise Christmas Special 1976. Sorry about the quality.

Gentleman, I present to you, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.



(source- http://www.maritimequest.com/side_wheel/great_eastern_1858/great_eastern_page_1.htm )

Long before TITANIC was conceived, Brunel, an engineer, designed (among other things) the largest ship of his time.
Here he is seen striking a pose against the drag chains of his 'Great ship' the Great Eastern.
If you have an hour to learn more, here is a very well made documentary on both Brunel and the Great Eastern.

Good timing, we have at last been able to increase the range of styles, models and options we can offer,for example most recently that included an Edwardian style double breasted tweed frock coat, a nehru is also possible, imagine our choice of cloths applied to one!Smoking Jackets, 3-2 rolls are amongs the options. We have not publicised our new capabilities yet as we are still fine tuning the offer, and needless to say it will be at a higher price, but even goes as far as second fittings , full canvas etc. We hope to announce the details in a few weeks, Note I'm not misusing the term bespoke out of respect for the term, but we are getting pretty close.All still hand made in England of course. Bring on the Nehru's!

The Beatles were stylish in their heyday too. I love those tab collar shirts from the Fab Four, pure English!
