I don't think the patterns themselves are a problem as much as the dissonant colors. For example, the color of the tie and suit are desaturated (almost like a pastel) whereas the pocket square color is highly saturated. I find that dissonance distracting.I have an old Arnys tie in a similar shade of purple that I have a hard time matching. I think it is because most of my clothes have high color saturation.
