I think this works, %, for a few reasons. One, we have a check (gingham?) tie on a check shirt. Two, the lighter grey works better with the pinks/reds, as the contrast isn't as stark. Finally, %'s ps is more burgundy than orangey-red. Spoo's outfit is too high contrast, IMO, whereas yours is more muted.
Twice today I agree exactly with you. The subtle differences in shades between spoo's and oldog's outfits makes all the difference.
