 Gee that's a nice color tie I follow the logic of purple + green, but imo the square is just a bit too IYF (in your face) for an otherwise stellar look.  Good old cream (puffed) silk would be golden.

Hi Gentlemen [[SPOILER]]
  No DFIH? The double wouldn't work with a donegal or other wool tie, but a lite-weight silk..

  Not much to add to Claghorn's explanation.  re matchy-  The polka dots on the square roughly repeat the regularity of the shirt design. If elements are going to match it should be subtle.  For example, a minor color in a square could pick up the same color in a tie or the shirt (have a look at  SYCSYC below your fit) but a mainly blue square with a solid blue tie looks contrived.   re the shirt-   That one is far too casual for any tie, even a knit. A solid blue would...
 Wore this to a funeral (not a close friend) on Tuesday.  White linen is always appropriate for funerals, weddings etc imo
