OP - perhaps you need to consider your suit choice more carefully. And while the shirt is plain white, is it double- or single-cuff, and is the collar point or spread? 
Velomatt's first suggestion is a good one for you, the light blue one. You've said that you worry that blue looks business-like, but if you wear a blue with some sort of floral motif it takes it away from the business look. Finally, when you narrow down your choices, let your wife decide. She'll like that you're asking her opinion, and don't we all want to look good for the other people in our lives?

Thanks. Sadly it's too small for me (Italian size 48 Slim Fit), and it was an e-thrift from Italy, so not going back. I'll just have to list it and see how it goes, but some you win some you lose. Hopefully post some pics of winners tomorrow if I can find my camera.
Thanks guys, the knowledge on this thread is quite remarkable!
This jacket is branded Royal Hem, an Italian brand, it's very casual and slim fit, but feels nice and has working cuffs, might it have more renowned maker?

Now that prompts a question! What techniques do people use for cleaning ties. For quite grim stains I've had success recently using Isopropyl Alcohol, or Rubbing Alcohol, as follows:- test a small area on rear first- soak a bit of cloth with alcohol and rub onto tie, you want to get the tie quite wet- dry with a hair dryer- repeat 2 and 3, sometimes a lot!This managed to completely remove a pen mark from a tie the other day, which staggered me, but is also pretty good on...
