^ A square with these characteristics is your ally.
Clags, have you got a repp tie that'll go with fit #1? Unlike neats, they can easily go with more casual ensembles. Try it & see how it looks. To balance the warmth in #2 swap in a pair of tan cotton trousers.
The dotted tie & square with a grey flannel suit - something tells me that might look great.
Stitchy, your tie / square game is strong. I like birdseye as a suit fabric, but I'm not sure I see the benefit of a birdseye blazer.
Estitchy, I like the dotted tie and square, and the suit, but not together. One says fun, the other says sober. The other one, tho, is great all around. Arch, good stuff. Orange and grey is underrated. Is that donegal jacket part of a suit?
FWIW I think tattersall is underrated & really enjoy seeing it with tweed in most every iteration, especially as a rumpled button-down like Unbel's. Probably my favorite fall look.
Tattersall can be tricky even with tweeds. With donegal it's great, but harder with herringbone (patterns / weave can be too similar in scale). Greg and I both have a type of pick-and-pick (not fine like end-on-end) that lends itself to textured fabrics from flannel to barleycorn. Can't think of it for the life of me; maybe @gdl203 can name it...
I give you... Charcoal pents.
Are we talking specifics or generalities? If we were to take the idea of "be better than those before us" continuously to its logical conclusion, we must assume there is a "best" taste. Hence there can remain just one shoe color, one trouser color, one shirt color, one jacket color, one tie color, and one pocket square color, with nothing matching and with varying patterns; all based on the ideal that there is a "better" choice, and ending with only one "best"...
