An Education is a 2009 British coming-of-age film based on the true story of a bright 16 year old schoolgirl and the thirtyish scoundrel who seduces her in 1960's London. Odile Dicks-Mireaux (A Constant Gardner and Dirty Pretty Things among others) did the men's costumes a la Sean Connery as James Bond.
The men are hatted, narrow tied and tie barred, wearing solids for the most part with lapels that complement the width of the neckties. I am sceptical that British men would have been belted fifty years ago but the palettes would be at home today.
Worth a look for anyone seeking more Mad Men style.
