Well if fastened, not broken if the teeth are not at variance whether the load? Inspect the buttons: how many should be, that's all, is there a spare? Note the cuffs and sleeves.

Try on a old jacket. Make sure the size fits you. If the thing is too small, or was, on the contrary, large, think about how much it must increase (reduce). Wearing a jacket, make sure that the lining is not peeking out on sleeves and hem.
Update your cuff. The simplest thing you can do is just to cut off and throw away worn-out parts, pre rebuff lining. Pick the right fabric, given that you will need to replace the collar.

Assemble the jacket with the lining. Try and check whether the lining. Try to keep backing cloth is not laid pleats, but was not overly tight.
