So do regular tailors make capes or do you have to find a cape maker? A couple weeks ago my British Warm was insufficient for the cold and I actually was wondering if having a cape for another layer would be nice.

Looks like you have a bolt of the cloth. One option is to drape the bolt of fabric across your chest and shoulder, mimicking the path of the lapel, and see how it looks in the mirror. you can also try it with various shirt an tie combos if you have the time and inclination.

I don't think you can get out of Charvet at $600 a shirt unless the euro really falls compared to the USD. Duties are indeed very high, at least 20-25%. I was warned about it when I ordered the shirts. My Demi-measure was around 350-400 euros per shirt at the 2 lowest price points, excluding VAT but not including US duties. Grand measure will certainly be more.

I'll also add that the weights of the LL fabrics are generally heavier than typically available.
In NYC I heard about a friend of a friend who only drives Über when it is raining or the weather is bad. I was out one Saturday night when it was raining hard. Über was 7x normal price. Apparently he made $1-2k that night.
