Christmas Gift Fit and Color Questions.

Hey, I was given a couple of jackets for Christmas and had a couple of questions about color and fitting. The first is a very green cord jacket, it seems to fit fine save for waist suppression and arm length alterations (Both of which are the norm for me). It is a 38r made by Polo. But, I am sort of up in the air about the color. I saw it on the website, but when I opened it. It did not strike me as well. A quick disclaimer, I have not seen it in sunlight only at night. Here are some pics.
Here is the best approximation of color.
Secondly are two Boglioli jackets (one grey and one navy), both a trim 50r in EU sizing. I am more worried about fit than color. I will take one with me to school and leave the other one to my father. Fit wise, again waist suppression and sleeve length. But, I feel as if the shoulders and chest are too large. The chest worries me more. Even though the jacket is unlined it seems as if their is a definite chest structure, one I don't fill. So there is a slight pull or piling near the buttons. I will mention this again in the pictures that address it. Let me know what you think? This is the navy one
The shoulder
Here is the piling of the lapel at the button. This is the grey one.
Here are the two side by side for a color comparison.
Thanks again. I would love to hear some feedback.
