    It's an illustration from a man's imagination. There was no actual garment, so no photos. Also, do not take those old Esquire illustrations seriously: they were an idealized view of top-of-the-heap style and almost nobody actually dressed 100% like that... plus those old illustrations are cartoonized in terms of shape, silhouette, etc. They're lovely, beautiful art, but they're mostly fantasy.

    From time to time, J. Peterman sells interesting designs similar.
