I live in a smaller market where Dillard's is considered high end. We do have a smaller shop, but they cater to a fuller individual. While I don't like my clothes tight, I do like them to fit! Same with shoes, though I actually deal directly with staff remotely for that. I would shop locally if they catered to me at all.
To the internet!

There is no retailer in the Bay Area that I am aware of whose clothing
I would even consider regardless of price. A few years ago Wilkes Bashford
carried tailored clothing to my taste, but not so recently. And they are overpriced.

Ditto that. I live in a small city with mostly blue collar roots. There are no quality men’s clothing stores in my community. Nordstrom Rack and VonMaur are the best we have. Shopping online gets me access to much higher quality at fair prices.

Not even Cable Car Clothiers, Buttondown, Wingtip, Alden, or Khakis of Carmel? @Gus would know others, I'd bet. Too bad the Hound closed.

CCC- Boring overpriced Ivy clothing
Buttondown- I have some things from them but they carry very little
tailored clothing.
Wingtip- Odd store. Haven't visited in a few years. As I recall,
they carry Peter Millar and other generic brands.
Alden- Shoes don't fit me
Khakis- Too trendy these days. As of 2018 they dropped Ring Jacket
which in any case doesn't fit me-the 44 R didn't even button

You seem absolutely ridiculously hard to please. There are numerous traveling tailors that come to the bay area, kiton is off Grant if I'm not mistaking, isaia, brunello cucinelli, I believe someone stocks eidos but I'm not sure. Suit supply is also in the city if that would be more your speed. What are you really wanting? That is better than most places in the world.

I am hard to please. I buy tailored clothing because I like it.
I have no need for any more of it. Nor do I wish to take a second
mortgage for likes of Kiton or really good bespoke. As far as the
stores you mentioned, The Kiton shop seems to be a local branch
of the Pitti freak show. The Isaia, almost as bad- short and tight
with itty bitty lapels, the last time I checked. Cucinelli is OK but
every jacket has that ticket pocket which I dislike. SS? I do not l
like mediocre trendy clothing sold by sockless posers.I have never
seen Eidos in San Francisco.
Except for a sport coat I got from Khakis of Carmel, everything else
I have bought in the past decade has been online. This includes
dress shirts and slacks.
