I'm with the others that you shouldn't match with the shirt and tie. I second the recommendation for a white shirt and black tie. The only place to coordinate is with a pocket square.
The suit on the right fits better through the chest, and it has a nice lapel role. But the suit on the right is a better length and the shoulders look better on you. I think the flap pockets are more flattering. Each of them are good in their own ways.
Classic fit with a long rise, side straps, and single forward pleats would do it for me.
Because it is cotton it is for summer wear, which tells me it needs MoP.

The trousers should at least be higher than the bottom button of the...

The button stance would look more balanced if it were an inch or two lower. The trouser rise is much too short for someone of your height. They don't sit anywhere close to your waist. I'd demand that they remake the trousers.
Are the side adjusters the elastic type? Aren't the pleats on the trousers are forward pleats, not reverse pleats as you mention?
