It's kind of an Armoury/BNtailor look. The tie is 3.25" wide, has a pointed end and is black, so it makes it a little more congruent. The heavy texture of this suit also knocks the formality down a notch, so I'd say overall it's not really a jarring look. I agree about the taper, the leg opening is 8" atm, but I think I can let them out to about 8.5". It's not ideal, but at least it's a little closer to what I prefer.
