"gialli" sounds like "jolly". yellow is a jolly color ^_^

i'd mostly use "la giacca" for the jacket and "il capotto" for the coat, or overcoat.

I came to the comments section hoping for a reference to the browncoats.

Coat is capotto and giacca is jacket

Giacca can be translated as "jacket" or short coat whereas capotto is for long coats (and probably trenchcoats)

A jacket is a type of coat. In BE anyway.
