Napoli jackets are completely different than this jacket. You can read hundred of posts about difference between two jackets but you really can not understand without trying both (i am skipping details like shoulders shape, open quarters etc. which is written everywhere)... Napoli jackets are worn very close to the body. They are light when you wear it in the sense that it covers your body, however they are not light in weight, the canvas used in napoli suits seems to me soft but not thin. In milanese jacket it's more hard but not that heavy. Milanese jacket is light weight but as canvas is more harder the jacket has more SHAPE. Milanese jacket has really a nice shape.
Construction is different as well, Musella will give better details for sure but least i can say is during fitting, napoli jackets are basted everywhere, in milanese jacket canvas is sewn only in some places (where there are darts etc).
Again you really need to wear them to feel the difference. it's really not shoulders or open quarters that make difference, it's the inner construction and the way of construction that make difference.
But the shoulders look different- much more built- up and/or extended, correct?
The shoulder is a little bit angled with a completely different construction, the neapolitan shoulder is very different from ours; it is constructed like a shirt so the shoulder is almost inexistent.
Our shoulder is constructed as a shoulder and most importantly on your shoulder, like a second skin for your bones and muscles, it is soft but at the same time it is not a waterfall. But as said previously if you don't put this on you will never understand the difference from a picture.
