The Best of the 1960s

I came across this image today: a suit made in the first half of the sixties to show how far they had come in just ten years.

Absolutely ugly both,i fear.
The 50s coat is too much long,with graceless lapels,
the 60s coat is too much short,with excessively narrow lapels.
The relatively less bad is the 60s coat.

Some more conservatively styled suits, contrasted with more fashionable styling for younger men:

...some younger men's styles:
Rundschau in those days usually presented two lines of cuts - classical and younger men's. It is a pity that this distinction and tension between the old and new has been largely lost these days. Most of the stuff from the catwalk looks too weird to appeal to even most young gay men, let alone anyone else.

Also from ASZ April 16, 1966 - a realisation of the button-four on the cover:
Is could that be a button-five coat?
Again from the same issue, a realisation of the button-three DB reefer jacket on the cover:

Notice the button-one show-one configuration plus the patch pockets.

Have you come ever across any double breasted coats (as part of a suit) which has hidden buttons completely. That is similar to fly front but with no seems giving it away. Just inside buttons to fasten but nothing showing on the outside of the coat.
I ask because from the photos you post of some of the designs of the 50's and especially 60's there seems to be a lot of experimentation with botton placement etc. But not much the other way round, ie a buttonless look.
