Personally I wouldn't wear a turtleneck with a suit with stripes so close together. Chalk stripes are a different story.
Love brown ties, but since I wear mostly brown shoes, muted burgundy ties are starting to grow on me.
You're probably right about trends, but I can't help but notice how many trends from yesteryear are still considered "acceptable" (or simply tolerated). In contrast, I can't imagine someone in the 1940s saying "Gee, I hope I can score a sweet morning coat rig from the 20s at the thrift store. All the guys will think I'm cool." Whereas now, 60s suits are hip.

Used to be that a guy had one, two, maybe three suits to his name, and lapel width/trouser flare would remain relatively constant for decades.

I like many of those examples. Turtlenecks with fall/winter suits and no tie with spring/summer weight suits. The latter looks especially rakish when done well.
Maybe. I honestly haven't checked (and probably never will) as this is a Level IV sport coat - unlined, unstructured, some kind of wooly houndstooth fleece with blue suede on the elbows and under the collar. It's oversized & a bit sloppy. In other words: the perfect jacket to wear with jeans and sneakers.
Practically new. Cork/neoprene sole, Trubalance last. Bootmaker's Edition with gray glove leather inside. Take 'em for $400.$350.

Terrible pic, but you get the idea.
