Agreed that it's good. In fact, it is worth comparing this to Tatano's fit, because superficially, they have a lot in common (red, blue, white, gingham, casual with a tie etc.), but the differences tell you quite a lot about what works and what doesn't.
This is great. In addition to all the examples posted above and having done a couple of image searches myself, I can't find any good MC examples of grey jacket + sand / camel trousers at all. So... would it be fair to say that the classic combination in this vein would be sand / camel jacket (or overcoat, of course) + grey flannels (or similar)? Why does this work, but the reverse, not so much? Is it simply convention, or is convention here the expression of some kind of aesthetic 'perfection'.
The new chinos look and fit great Stitches. I like the SC and trouser combo.
IMO I would just hem the trousers with no break, cuffing them like you did seems to make the leg opening smaller which makes your feet look bigger. If you wanted to make them more versatile and casual you can get them taken up but keep the original hem. I do it with my jeans.

simple as that. No snark there. EmartJ's comment was assholish yes, but it does not remove from the fact that the outfit was awful.
Besides I believe EliodA in your short stay here you have given your fair share of jabs here too.
