Derek, lovely fit as usual. Too big tie knot... as usual. Why would you do a double FIH with a tie like that?
i dont like a FIH with this. I much prefer a tad more heft to my knot with a cashmere or wool tie.

that it is digs. But I just prefer a double FIH on my ties....i tried a FIH before, but IMHO its too small for the width and girth (?) of the tie. When I tie the FIH and keep the knot tight, the knot is VERY small. I dont like that. So a double to me works best.
Great patterned suit, but way too many colors and linear patterns going on overall. Lets step back a bit.
I would suggest a solid white or blue shirt, solid burgundy or silver/black glen plaid tie and white pocket square.
I would encourage you to work on nailing the basic color concepts first for each suit, then adding one pattern at a time. Don't start with four of them.
But, I give you bonus points for selecting the solid colored coordinated socks. (You could teach one or two guys on here, who shall remain nameless but they know who they are, a lesson or two about that. ) The solid matching socks show off the beautiful pattern in your suit and don't distract from it. Way to go.
I'm bound to be in the minority on this, but I actually think you've pulled off the mega-pattern coordinating pretty well here. It's mostly the loud (and unattractive) tie that's causing eye overload and carrying you into The Spoozy Zone.
