Stripes, IMO, can work as an odd jacket, but it depends. Usually, it's something about the stripe itself that says this would be great for an odd jacket but usually too much for a suit. Also you can do other tricks to make it look clearly like an odd jacket. Patch pockets maybe, or perhaps doing an uncommon color for lining. If in doubt, I'd avoid it though (excepting of course those of unlimited funds)
STP has a pretty liberal return policy so you may want to take advantage of such.
I've had many rose' that I've liked, but most white zins are cloying.
If you're talking about pant, here are generally good considerations: rooms with lots of sun benefit when panted in cooler colors; rooms with less sun benefit when panted in warmer colors. Darker or more saturated colors tend to make things seem closer which can make a room seem smaller but can be used to advantage at times (e.g., if a ceiling really is too high).

Somewhat off topic: One of my favorite wine stories was relayed from a friend who went on one of the wine tours in Cal. The guide is suggesting various wine/food pairings, e.g., cab with braised short ribs etc. Someone asks quite seriously what goes with white zinfindel. The guide pauses (perhaps to consider if the request was serious) and then in the most haughty voice says "chicken mcnuggests" Regarding votives: I don't like it when we order a nice bottle of...

I like using old archiac terms too, but you could have been more helpful to the staff as well. If you'd ask for "neck scarves" they could have likely figured out what you wanted, or if you wanted to continue playing with old terms you could have responded "no, I don't want a 'muffler' I'd like a 'scarf.'" I think this is...

Of course they're going to show you a Burberry nova check or cashmere tartan when you ask for a scarf. Not everyone has the time to sit around, learn trite little synonyms and pretend they live in a bygone era. People who live in the 21st century call...
