I don't mind two buttons on the cuffs, but if you replace those, try to find very dark brown or burgundy leather knotted buttons.
^^   Why replace them?
You've read this, eh? http://dieworkwear.com/post/13831024107/the-cutaway-single-monk and, uh, the follow-up, which I happen to agree with? http://dieworkwear.com/post/57713004143/reconsidering-the-single-monk
Which one, the field coat or the blazer? I think the proportions in the field coat one are really nice together, so I think slimmer jeans would require everything else changing a little bit -- my instinct is to say that the top half would need to get trimmer too, but I my vague sense of what's hip suggests that the top half would be better off getting looser in that case, and I think the shoes would need different proportions, too.
Thanks for the advice, and the kind words. I think the issue I had was a combination of all the factors you pointed out, plus the tighter neck of the V-neck pushing it down, and the fact that I did not allow the costume department enough time for last looks before shooting.
^^   Too short, and with that much curve to the fronts and the patch pockets, lowering the hem probably won't ever look right. Anyway, the lapel shape is a bit extreme.
Monkeyface:   Didn't @NickPollica do something similar with pintucked moleskins?
Here's what I wore today, in context (more or less).  
This may sound dumb, but which three seasons? I wear hopsack in the summer (pull it off in the sun, put it on in the air conditioning), but it looks a little off in winter to me.
I thought this was how all of #menswear worked.
