 Fantastic!  I love the cloth You doubt me? I'm deeply i-offended.  As to origins, AFAIK it's lost in the mists of sartorial antiquity.
   Neat ties r for suits, not SCs.  Surely you know that.   Sadly it's getting to a point where this is a convention more honoured in the breach than in the observance, particularly in these pages, but to me this is an instant red flag. A navy DB with brass buttons is quite formal, as u acknowledge, and a chambray is not: too casual for a suit, and too casual for a neat or imo any tie.  Fun socks don't go with anything. I could've included those bit loafers, which are both...
 The  Belvest jacket I have is similar, maybe identical cut-wise.  They're well (machine) made.   I get a slight bulge at my sides under the arms because my shoulders are a little too slopy for the cut.   edit:    @1st Step  and @An Acute Style What the ?  I've got 8 shots in a row of Acute wearing  a neat tie, chambray shirt, a DB SC and fun socks  -   none of which should ever be seen with any of the others in the same outfit.    
  The black shoos r a little too formal there yjung, imo  Let's keep it clean  edit: sorry, misunderstood   They do a really high, square shoulder and razor-sharp lapel edge at Belvest-  'modern' looking.  Is HC retailing them?
 @diplomatic_lies  I love your urbane European style, however, I agree with AJL that the square is a distraction.  It's as much about the way you have it folded as it is about the similarity in design to your tie.  Puffed cream silk would be perfect.  
 I like that green.... I have a similar  jacket in a W Bill Phoenix
  Conventional open clothes racks are mostly single tier and don't fully use a room's vertical space.  I'm thinking double tier rack, one above the other, the lower dowel positioned slightly further from the wall the better to see and reach for jackets there.   Also  a 'tie horse', kind of like a longer horizontally tilted pommel horse, lined with an awsm hairy tweed to discourage slippage, and so that I see  ties  arranged along it in seasonal groups. Rolling or stacking...
  Shoulders look much better Mcobinad. Deets on the cloth?
