I got a Burberry London trench off of ebay NWT for $500. (Made in the US, 100% cotton shell, 100% wool lining) I need some help though ID'ing the year/season and some advice regarding alterations. After looking at the stitching and buttons under a jeweller's loupe, I am reasonably convinced as to authenticity (serifs on the letters, rat-tails on the R's) .

The tag is a bit "odd" due to some smudging or something.

And for the fitting... The sleeves are too long. Also, the fit seems a bit roomy, even when I wear a sport coat underneath. First is a picture with the belt tightened as much as reasonably possible. Second, I have it unbelted "as is."

I am wondering about the length and the fit in the torso.
