    The only thing I might suggest as to dating the dress jacket is do a black light test. The main problem with that is if it has been cleaned with a phosphate soap it will glow also.
    The only other way would be a manufacturers date stamp in an inside pocket.

    0 stamps in pocket. Fabic feels like satin or silk. Has a bit.of yellowish tint to it.
