Up close, the first looks better, as it isn't solid at that distance. That new square doesn't do it for me, though I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe it just feels too dark for the rest of the look. The outfit is one where white linen would work just fine.
You might consider taking all this to Noodle's Good Natured Advice Thread (Building a Better Business Wardrobe). Frank, snark-free advice from a lot of quarters, generally trying to look at the big picture or your wardrobe rather than a fit-by-fit approach.
I strongly caution getting a bunch of suits from a tailor at once. I'm sure the folks at Liverano will say the same. Reason being, after each iteration, a tailor can sort of step back, look at his work, an determine where improvement can be made. Certain things can only be done (well) at the outset of making a garment, so that improvement occurs with the next commission.
You also might check out B&Tailor (I'm biased here). I've been very happy with them (working with them directly) and @tchoy, probably one of the best tailored folks around here, has been using their Australia based fitter for a while. Their cut, similar in some respects to that of Liverano, may work well with your body type.
