Sorry if these are redundant questions but I'm new to this and trying to figure out exactly what the pattern is on the jacket I'd call it a glen plaid pattern. If you wanted to be more specific: a glen plaid tweed jacket.

I have seen this type of opening on unstructured jackets before. I wouldn't worry about it, unless you see loose threads suggesting it is falling apart.
I supposed it depends on what field you are in, but can you just wear a navy blazer and wool pants for interviews? More versatile than a suit and you can size each piece differently.

Total was around $400 (on sale) and while it isn't the most amazing garment in terms of quality, it fits great, which is probably the first thing that most people notice anyway....
Just got my jacket and it is a little tight in the chest. Is there enough fabric to let it out 1/2" or more?
