It can definitely be brought up. The button stance should still look fine after you shorten the jacket 1.5 in. If the pockets end up looking too close to the bottom, tuck in the flaps. If there are vents, they might end up being a little short but still okay. Make sure you have the sleeves shortened, by about an inch.

So does a notch lapel dinner jacket. For a waistcoat, the squared-off lapels are traditional.
Linen is cooler.
I believe there are parts of the US where one can wear an ivory DJ, but not the northeast. I think it's okay below the Mason-Dixon Line after Memorial Day.
What is a peak collar? It looks like you have a wide spread collar. You want to re-cut it to a cutaway? Where will you put the collar stays? You'd be much better off just buying some shirts with cutaway collars.

When they don't fit well, flared forward pleats look worse than flared reverse pleats. When they a properly fitted, I find that forward pleats are more flattering and more effective. But that's just my experience.

Just in case anyone is confused, forward pleats open toward the fly and reverse pleats open away. Reverse pleats are the standard type of pleat in America and Italy, and have become more common in Britain as well.
