How is the answer not obvious? Note the domino mask, gloves, and fedora. It's the details that make it work.
I generally don't like the look, but if you can pull it off like this: then go for it.
Just measured my Canali coat. An ordinary 29" BOC and 23" sleeves. Label 48 C.

But I compared it to the measurements of sportscoats that fit me well. Those sportcoats are listed as "regular" and the measurements are about the same. Maybe Canali runs long... I can't find anywhere that lists the average lengths for short, long and tall--I suppose this varies with style...
I wouldn't worry about something like that with pinstripes. Wider set chalk stripes would be another story, but I doubt anyone would notice with most pinstripes.

The tags look real enough. I'm not sure Canali is wide-enough known for there to be many fakes, unlike a fashion brand like Armani. When it arrives, just examine the quality and check the canvasing.
Any decent tailor can close a vent. It will look perfectly fine afterward.
It all depends on the measurements. Most importantly the shoulder. If it fits in the shoulder, a competent tailor should be able to get the rest to fit you as well (within reasonable starting conditions). Buying 1 size outside your true size can often work out (but as always, check the measurements--most importantly the shoulders). I usually have to do it since 36S is so rare, so a slim 38 can often be tailored down to fit me. Anything beyond that, do not attempt.
