K787 1964 Japanese catalogue

1964 Japanese catalogue use a Ken wearing tuxedo on the cover. as you can see, his jacket has a corsage as boutonniere. K787 seems to had been sold in these style sometimes in Japan. K787 variation-these corsage are sewn on the top of the original boutonniere.  I’ve found two K787 variations from Japan which seems to be ‘correct’.

I’ve also seem a similar style tuxedo in few American advertisements(1964-65), but I am not sure if it was really sold in the US.
