Merry Christmas, you filthy animals.

To say that is to say Christmas is just ... I really like how blazers ... I think I have a similar coat =)
I don't think that's left handed people who do that. You may be thinking of Australians.
Dad was never too much in to style. He was in to sports a bit though and I could never borrow his clubs, his glove, etc. any more than I'd have been able to borrow his sport jackets if he'd had any.
Everything seems a bit large: shoulders, sleeves, chest and waist. I would definitely try to size down and see how it looks (and feels).
Given you are not wearing a suit under it, I would look at how it fits with a suit under. That is, if that is how you plan to wear it, often. It looks a touch big, but not very much. Do you wear suits often? Is it when wearing a suit that you most want to look spot on? Give us a pic with a suit :)
This isn't what I'm wearing right now - so I'm cheating - this is a coat I have the chance to inherit if I wish, only I'm not sure about it. Its bespoke, was made in Dublin sometime in the early 80s I would say, cashmere with an silk inside lining. Its in incredible condition, like it was brand new.
The fit seems OK (sleeves are a little short) but overall I'm not sure if I'm in love with it or not - its as heavy as a mofo and I don't normally wear double-breasted anything. Plus the colour isn't as versatile I would say.
(sorry the pictures aren't brilliant)
