I'm sorry to say, but yes, it's far too big. Don't despair though, I've purchased my fair share of items online that haven't fit correctly.
I'd suggest rather than alterations (as quite a few seem to be needed), simply resell the garment and, with knowledge of a few key measurements of yours (shoulders, sleeve length, chest, waist and inseam) keep up the search. You've done well in already looking for garments to buy on this site, as many sellers can readily give you the measurements of the items they are selling, allowing you to find a more perfect match.
Patience is needed, but I'm sure that after a while, you'll come across many items that will be a closer fit. I know it's tempting to buy a great looking suit/jacket at an appealing price, but only do this if it satisfies your dimensions. Be ruthless, if it doesn't match your measurements, close the tab on it and move on. Best of luck!
No, burn it and start again.
Do you think a EU 46R would be perfect or even smaller?
