I am most impressed with the back of the grey suit coat, worn by the man facing away from us and sitting on the bench. That is the way to craft a jacket that works with the wearer. ;)
It is very much like the Norfolk jacket. The half-belt at the back tends to draw in the waist a bit and gives shape to the back of the jacket. This style is in contrast to the sack cut where there is less shaping of any kind in the torso.

Isn't it interesting that in science-fiction films about the future, one rarely sees men wearing the standard suit-shirt-tie ensemble? Our ideas about future dressing for males appear to involve some sort of closed-collar or round-necked tunic paired with trousers. Perhaps these films herald the demise of the suit (or its transformation) in the future.
