unless the cut is high enough or the flap/pocket is placed low enough to cover the cut. Regardless, the cut will always be there.   Another option is to replace the side panel if you have the cloth. That would be the equivalent of starting anew. All options are ambitious and labor intensive but if it's a new jacket with low mileage, it would keep you from wasting the jacket from not wearing it
cream, buff or dove grey are best choices for a vest and probably the easiest colors to find ready made.   The jacket is too small in the upper chest and causes the lapels to bow like that. Shoulder slope may be contributing but not sure.
If there is a wedge cut under the patch pocket, you cannot transition to flap pockets. Look inside the patch; if you see a horizontal strip of lining, that is the wedge cut. Lining is used to cover the cut. If no cut was done it is possible to covert but a pain to do.
The cloth has such a harsh/coarse worsted finish that doesn't say "sport coat" to me. It lacks the character of a cloth that  is worn as a sport coat/odd jacket and  would render first as an orphaned suit jacket. The only one that comes close is the old 520 color due to the mottled coloring.   Hopsack and basket weaves from sport coat books with a softer hand say/read sport coat in a better way.   Fresco is sort of an internet phenomena. 
Have done the water drops (RDT) when using hand grinders but not with a powered grinder. Makes a noticeable improvement of reducing static.   Tried it this morning with the smart grinder and there was less stray grinds floating around. A few but not nearly as much without the water drops.
Don't think it would be any different than your Encore. Stray coffee grinds just happen.    You can try using dosing funnels or different types/sizes of containers that fit snug to the chute but you still get some amount of stray grounds   Haven't used any grinder that doesn't leave a trail of grounds somewhere.
Could you repeat that please or say it another way? Not sure how to interpret your comment
London Lounge Linen is just the right weight/body for linen. Good colors. Have made up quite a few. Don't remember how the price compares to others.    Be aware not all linens are 60" wide, some are 30" wide and require double yardage   Now back to intestinal issues
Thanks for the tip about Ninety Plus.   Have the Breville Smart Grinder Pro and it seems to do a good job. Don't use it for espresso. Dialed in to use with Bonavita Immersion Dripper. Both are easy to use with consistent results. Bonavita is good for single cup brewing. Have a 6 cup Chemex for brewing larger batches but don't use it often
I don't know, Maybe. Any 3 on 2 DB can be buttoned to the bottom button. Have two clients who intentionally always wear a 3 on 2 buttoned on the bottom button and want the lapel rolled past the middle button. The lapel would break between the middle and lowest button same as a 3 roll 2 SB would roll between the top and middle button. So the answer is, "depends on how the client wears it."
