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

You are probably correct.
http://www.hilditchandkey.co.uk Check the size chart on the WebSite. They do not offer any real slim fit- which do not fit me with my bulky proportions (mostly muscle). Otherwise, good shirts for the price.
