Insert standard boilerplate bad camera/pictures/etc. here. Temps in the mid 90's F. The seersucker hasn't been pressed since a 12 hour hop back from Spain on Sunday but everything else was too hot to wear today. True pant color as well as jacket check (not shown) Pants and jacket color match close up.

Dig, I think you genuinely come looking for advice, so before it gets all nuts - - for sure lose the chain outside the shirt. - shirts that dark are no good. Stick to lighter colors. These drab olive tones in your fits are doing you no favors. I think you would benefit a lot from some bolder colors to liven you up. A navy suit, white shirt, and that tie for example, would be just killer. I think most of your problems with your fits are in the fact that your colors are all in that early-mid 90s olive/khaki/green theme. Just for shits and giggles, do you have a navy suit and white shirt you can do this tie with another time? Or if not a suit, a lighter khaki pant and a navy jacket with white or light blue shirt and same tie? (Can you tell I like the tie LOL)

No can do. Silent alarmy panic device required to be worn with quick access while on the job.

This can be arranged. Check this space Thursday, same time.

Also doable. I'm just trying to hammer down the seersucker before moving on. Also, upper 90's and very humid today so it seemed more appropriate than the heavier navy items mentioned.

Good macro points by Spoo, and if I might add a micro - a white pocket square is a go to fail safe on a dark business suit in charcoal or navy but it gets lost in a very light colored jacket, which might be practical for the heat and have a nice pattern/texture but from a distance blurs into light gray. Have some fun with your PS - it's your chance to make something pop as long as it reflects or complements a colour in your shirt and/or tie.

Gonna have to dissent with Spoo on this. I like the dark shirt.

Seersucker is supposed to be bright and cheery, not worn on top of a mostly olive combination. You might want to consider looking into brighter colors, especially with your complexion. These dark colors are not doing you any favors. A crisp white shirt, some light blues, even some light yellows. Something to enhance contrast, not match your skin tone. This fit winds up just looking muddy to me.
