These  jackets, like a hacking /suit jacket /sport jacket, but with a collar instead of lapels seem quite common in the early 60's - here are a couple of the beatles (John and Paul ) wearing them http://wfiles.brothersoft.com/t/the-beatles-wallpaper_151855-1920x1080.jpg

and here Mick Jagger http://www.bbc.co.uk/berkshire/content/images/2008/11/25/rollingstones_470_470x313.jpg

So does anyone know what they are called ? Some Safari Jacket and leather jackets have a slightly similar shape, but these look more tailored. Also, are they still available anywhere, does anyone know ?

I noticed that Macy's "Club Room" has some ok looking Mock Turtlenecks and "smedley" esque 3 button wool polos (actually both 50/50 merino /acrylic), and they do deliver to the UK for 20 or so. Mock turtlenecks don't come cheap in the UK so I was tempted , but do any America forum folk have an idea of fit ? Not slim fit, I'm sure , but I'm hoping a medium is not superbig (22 inch across the chest , or more )
