It's a super duper casual outfit, not much thought was wasted on it (well...maybe -- see below), but it still seems inviting and friendly.

Is the shirt pattern too autumnal?
Is the polo player too gauche?
Is the bluey-blue denim "sportcoat" too declassé?

This seems irrelevant. It looks like something comfortable and sporty to wear when plonking around the garden.
I guess the case could be made that he picked those items very deliberately, for a photo shoot no less...! But nevermind the intention, how about the execution?
As something transferable to our own circumstances, a checked BD and a frumpy denim chore jacket seem well within the bounds of reason. I like that they have a bit of color.

I'm not sure what the outfit is being compared to. Obviously it can't be objectively bad, so you must be comparing it to some hypothetical situation where he wears a different shirt and a different coat. But why do this?

The dude looks like he got beat up by TJ Maxx.

If you're cool with garden plonking steeze, you're a lucky guy since you won't mind most of what you see out on the street. But there used to be some sort of standards around here.

Considering that the majority of the world dresses like they are headed to and from the gym (which they probably are -- another modern addiction), garden plonking steez seems like a step up and suggests an interest in something other than pumping iron/yoga/smoothies.

 

If he were actually in a garden, it would be unimpeachable. Probably he's on the grounds of some villa, so it's a bit silly, but nothing to get worked up about.

 

I don't want an Anna Wintour type world where everyone sashays around in three piece suits all the time. Do you?

 

It seems OK that a past-60 musician should be able to slap together reckless combos. Have you seen the "Hawaiian suit" combos that Charlemagne Palestine likes to wear? There is a man having fun.

 

If you can find a smoking gun that shows he was wearing Crocs with that oufit, then we have grounds for the TJ-Maxxian implications of it all. Otherwise, chillax...I think your tie knot may be blocking off oxygen flow to your creative faculties.

Sounds like some kind of Sartorial S&M session...

yes it is, but I was more interested in the colors/fabrics than the fit of the jacket.

also a shantung or less shiny silk tie would be better

Air Force blue x light khaki? Fresco 0520 probably is the same color

Jacket cut aside, I too like the fabrics/colour combo here. While a knit might've been better, I don't mind the tie.

But the white PS in a TV fold is too severe for such a casual fit, IMHO.

I don't care for the navy tie with the jacket in this instance. There's no dialog with the lower half, IMO.

"Hello flood pants in khaki, this is your super short Air Force blue jacket calling. How are you?"

"dialog with the lower half" A polite term for
self- pleasuring?
