    It's much too short now. The fit isn't great to begin with. I say cut your losses.

    That looks more like a blue suit jacket than a blazer.

    looks more like an orphaned suit jacket.

    change the buttons to something more casual.
    brown horn type.
    the sizing is ok.

    This is an example of why it's better to start with a good fit rather than attempting to butcher into being a good fit.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures but it's a textured blazer.

    Couldn't agree more, but it was worth a shot at the price I got it at.
