Can't tell much about the fit, and lapel width is a bit on the trendier side, but you are definitely safe with regards to color. That's a pretty standard blue.
I used to live near Tommy Lee Jones. We used the same gas station. I saw him there once. He came in, greasy haired, slouching towards the beer section, his grocery store flip flops slapping against the ground.
