I'd agree with your assessment and I remember seeing the green blazer before. I think it looks good on you and you wear it well. Hard to tell in that pose, but I'd guess you could probably lower the green as well and help bring a little better balance to it.
The tan I would lower a full 2 inches on you. On DBs a buttoning point not far above the top of the trousers is a reasonable starting point. A lot of it depends on the shape of the lapels and how high the overlap is because that largely defines the visual weight of the jacket. A high buttoning point typically makes people look bottom heavy as theres so much jacket beneath the buttons. Lowering the buttoning point rebalances the jacket and elongates the lapel, which visually broadens the upper half of the jacket and slims the hip.
