Finding the maker and date of this camel hair polo coat? Tailoring as well

Hey everyone.

I picked up a vintage polo coat, and was wondering who the maker of this coat might have been, and when it was made.

It has a union label which says "ACTWU - Union Made in the USA." I did a search and found another thread on the lounge which indicated the union existed from 1976-1995.

It was made for Saks Fifth Avenue.

Also, thoughts on the silhouette? I dig the upper half of the silhouette, looks very masculine and slouchy, despite the presence of darts.

The bottom half of the silhouette is wider and more A-line than I was expecting compared to the more T-shaped Ralph coats I've seen. I already have lots of raglan coats with a similiar silhouette on the bottom.

I was thinking of having the body taken in, not sure if this is too much for a tailor.
