I was there at that time and place and wore those type of clothes. In my case Brooks. I only wore J Press after college and finally settled on Chippthrough the 90s. As for a tie on the inside packet, never. Also at Cornell where the weather could be brutal on very short notice, we often woreArmy or Navy surplus jackets in lieu of a sport coat.http://www.ebay.com/itm/USN-Navy-N1-N-1-Deck-Jacket-Khaki-Vintage-Finished-type-deck-crew-riders-/321952136895
Complicated alteration? Not really. It doesn't take a Bespoke master to shorten the rise on a pair of cavalry twills.Had this done before and since with success. Andy blew it. Perhaps he cut that class in tailoring school.
He altered some trousers for me about 15 yeaRs ago.They were rendered unwearable. I suppose taking in a shirt is far lesscomplicated.My own tailor in Menlo Park, who I and a number of SFers swear by,will do the job to perfection:Bob Stankovic650-323 9614
Comrade, this is ridiculous. Not that I am trying to emulate Neapolitan tailoring. You would think the internet would provide clarity but how my work is defined/interpreted is humorous! No offense intended. Your work is generally regarded as about the best bespoke in the US, but not Neapolitan in Style.
You might try these guys. They now have a Chicago presence. I know nothing about them and some years ago I inquired on SF about them and got no response. In any case, their clothing looks Neapolitan. http://www.belluccinapoli.com
"Neapolitan-style tailor was Despos in Chicago." His house style is about as Neapolitan as I am a member of the Roman Curia.

You are correct. I lived in Chicago in the 70s and 80s and shopped in New York.SanFrancisco is worse. Both cities have suffered over the last decades from the onslaughtof 'Business casual" and in the case of the Bay Area, the prominence of tech people.BTW, who in the Bay Area is offering Neapolitan bespoke? I would be very wary of thebespoke/MTM offerings, of Wilkes BAshford, Barneys, Saks, etc. These stores sell virtuallythe same "Italian for the American Market"...
And un-refunded deposits, I recall.Further details on Mr Beaman:http://www.styleforum.net/t/350215/darren-beaman-and-the-statute-of-limitations
British Warms were quite popular during the 80s in the US. I wore one when I lived in Chicago. It was from Chipp and 32 oz. melton, I believe. Unlike the Huntsman example shown, it was natural shoulder and somewhat looser fitting. Mine had no epaulets. This model from O'Connell's approximates mine: http://www.oconnellsclothing.com/O-Connell-s-British-Warm-Overcoat.html
