Yep, that's exactly the one. Except my price is a bit better, no?
Updated with a picture and measurements.

It is 98% wool/ 2% cashmere, with side vents and ticket pocket--made by St. Andrews. It's very much a standard 42R. Sleeves are basted and all buttons are included. See this ebay link for an identical blazer (thanks to rogerm!) with more detailed pictures.

Shoulders: 19 1/4"
Sleeves: 25 1/4"
