My attempt at four patterns:

I fail to see the fourth pattern... the tie looks more "textured" than "patterned" to me. I like this, though.
Real vintage style. Congratulations!
But the tie gives me two associations: Funeral or Chicago gangster.
The waist coat is useful together with a lot of other outfits. I doesn´t look too elegant for dayly use.
Now, that you have entered the vintage road it is just to walk on. Welcome to the club.
Happy New Year to all of you on this slightly spruced up SF - which surprised me a bit after coming back after a little break!
Here's a new acquisition. I'm going to have perhaps half an inch taken off the trouser length, but otherwise this bespoke 1965 three-piece suit almost looks like it could have been made for me yesterday (or at least been a reasonable OTR fit). When I saw the measurements, I at least hoped it was adjustable as they seemed almost an exact match (to the half inch), and what's even more spooky is that first name and initials of the guy who had this made for him are the same as mine. With the slightly shorter, ventless jacket, it's just a little bit mod, which is not a classic choice but exactly how I like it. What's even better is that I have another even more navy blue three-piece made for the same person from about the same time - that one is to come. (Shirt is Dunhill, tie is a thick silver CT grenadine. Unfortunately, I can't take a good pic of the Carmina deep brown military-style ankle boots that I'm wearing with this today. You'll just have to take my word for it that they're fabulous).
