stichy, my first instinct with that tie would be suit rather than odd jacket, but as the jacket & trousers are so sober anyway, I do believe it works well in this context regardless. Nice one. Also consider the same combination with a cream/ecru shirt instead. A warm colour like that might play even better with the yellow in the tie and the brown of the shoes.
thank you very much, guys. much appreciated.
HF - i have been considering adding an ecru shirt to my closet. have not come across one i loved yet. soon
also, love your SC.
