It looks good. How do you feel in it? If it feels comfortable leave it as is. It is also a matter of personal preferance. How tight you want your jacket to feel. Incidentally, I recently had my measurements taken by a new tailor (first commission) from Italy and he asked me how I want it to fit, suggesting a range from loose to really tight. He suggested a tight fit as more "Italian" ;)
I respectfully disagree. I do resole my shoes and keep them for years and years... I think old worn shoes are very elegant and in a way I develop a connection with them... But I am just be a shoe neurotic as you said... :)
