This would be a neat exercise, especially if we drilled down to the level of detail Manton did on Ask Andy with his wonderful pictures of several different Savile Row house styles. In that thread, you could really get a great appreciation for the overall lack of specificity terms like "English style" or "Savile Row style" have. In the same manner, "Neapolitan" is similarly too broad, since a Borrelli jacket and a Kiton jacket look very different to me. Or "Roman" style is too broad to get a deeper understanding of the many terrific traditions within those broad categories.
