My tailor is in the region as well and actually i am paying even slightly lower. There's huge value in Sicily and people tend to be more reliable than Naples for instance (story of comparing south...)
With respect to shoulders, the shoulder expression is given in the finishing stage and does not impact they way shoulders are cut or fit. Padding is another story and it's very hard to tell whether a suit has padding or not from a picture... The fact that shoulders seem square does not mean it has padding, it means just that sleeves are set in traditional way and not spalla camicia etc.
Interestingly my tailor makes by default traditional standard shoulder expression and not spalla camicia.
