What are your general rules for combining textures, if you don't mind? That looks like a corduroy jacket with a silk tie and PS. Would it have also been reasonable to pair it will a wool tie?
I have more of a negative rule which is not to wear really shiny ties with more rustic fabrics. Then again, I don't do any really shiny ties anymore. A wool tie could have worked with this, I think, but I felt like I needed some contrasting textures. BTW, the hank is actually a silk/wool blend (sorry Stitchy) and has no sheen.
Trying on hats at Cable Car Clothiers in San Francisco yesterday:
Hat Panama -(made in Ecuador) from Cable Car
Jacket -bespoke NSM cashmere wool blend tweed
Shirt- End on end blue MTM from My Tailor
Tie - Bespoke through NSM from EG Cappelli

It's a little bit '70s, but the Live & Let Die look is kind of fun. I wound up listening to B.T. Express while taking the pictures, too. I think it would look more contemporary with less-fully cut gray flannels, instead of these brown whipcords. The burnt orange tie doesn't help.
I actually dig the tie and the jacket. But for as slimming as that jacket is, those pants look practically parachute ready. Maybe think about getting a slimmer pair of trousers. Colors are nice though. Kind of tweedy and professorial.
