Yeah, way too short for you, and lengthening a jacket is flat out impossible due to how the quarters have to be cut in front. Not to mention that the button stance is already on the higher side- lengthened, it would look ridiculous. It does look nice, shouldn't be hard to sell.

Too short, and with that much curve to the fronts and the patch pockets, lowering the hem probably won't ever look right. Anyway, the lapel shape is a bit extreme.

What buttons should I replace the knotted leather ones on this tweed blazer I thrifted? I was thinking dark brown like this:

Why replace them?

I am missing one on the sleeves -- there is 3 on the left and 2 on the right. I suppose, I could cut one of the left and then it would be 2 and 2 :) Might be easier than paying to replace. I have to get the sleeves lengthened and the waist taken in a bit anyways.

I don't mind two buttons on the cuffs, but if you replace those, try to find very dark brown or burgundy leather knotted buttons.

I like the ones you found on Ebay, but if this is a 3-button blazer then you'd want a spare front button.

Almost perfect. Rear views?

Where can I get a decent overnight/weekend bag? Say £100-£200 range, preferably closer to the lower end.

No rear views; sorry.  Didn't think of that at the time.

I have used the RedOxx airboss for the last 5 years and 250k miles. It still looks brand new. Highly recommended. http://www.redoxx.com/air-boss/91018/product 

 

Fits a suit folded, and as long as you bundle pack, everything arrives safe.

Leather, canvas, nylon, other? Wheels, no wheels? Available in store (where?) or online only? And etc.

"Decent" just isn't as specific as one might like.
