I love the jacket (it's a deep chocolate brown that exactly matches the shirt stripes) and other pieces individually but feel like I could have done better.
I didn't want to wear a blue shirt of any sort and a navy tie, that feels like cheating.
If it matters, worn with dark denim and deep brown riding boots.
Is matching the shirt stripe to the jacket pushing the boundaries of matchy?
Is the tie too country and the velvet too rock and roll?
Would a forest green grenadine tie (I don't own one...yet) be a decent idea?
I really struggled with picking a tie, I have a few neats and discreet patterns that would be passable with a blue shirt, but I held up about ten different ones and everything looked like hell with the brown stripe shirt.
Thanks in advance, I'd like to wear the jacket once more in November before December/Jan rolls around and it is time for the burgundy/midnight/black velvet.
