Tucker is a good example. The 2 Jakes I have only seen 10 minutes of, so I'll take your word for it. Haven't seen last film. Some Bold Look can also be seen in The Man Who Wasn't There, L.A. Confidential and the first half of Hollywoodland. Old films which contain examples of the Look include Criss Cross and Kiss of Death (early Bold Look, with Widmark in the latter wearing a hat...the size of a lampshade.), Where the Sidewalk Ends, Gun Crazy (although not John Dahl) and Borderline. You can see the Look as it was starting to be phased out, in Kansas City Confidential and Suddenly.

Hitchcock's "Strangers On A Train" from 1951 has a few nice SB examples.

The lapels on the suit that Rober Gist is wearing sports some substantial lapels and a pretty low gorge to boot.
