Jacket, however, looks like very low notches....looks quite dated to me, might be worth getting rid of that one in favor of something from Yoox, etc?
Here I am today in my best Stitches pose:

I really wanted to wear these pants, so I started with them. I have been getting rid of a lot of pants in my wardrobe, and these feel like they fit pretty well. I decided immediately that I needed a light blue shirt, as the pants are brown PLUS they have a light blue stripe in them. I settled on this light blue/pink/brown striped one (this shirt may not be in good taste at all). I figured the brown stripe would tie well to the pants. With two already questionable items to start with I decided everything else needed to be plain/normal. I picked the navy SC next. I was going to go with a knit, but I'd already worn my brown knit this week, and my navy knit felt too matchy with the SC. I figured the point/semi-spread collar would be fine with silk, so I grabbed this plain slightly textured solid. I finished it off with some of my most conservative brown shoes. I thought of wearing walnut to pick up on the lighter brown/orange stripe in the pants but figured the shirt and pants were already bold enough. My brown socks were dirty so I chose navy, and topped it off with a white linen PS.
I wish I had more spread/cutaway collar shirts
Maybe a pocket square with some pink in it would have tied to the shirt better.
I REALLY like the fit of this SC, I wonder if others feel the same.
Pants and/or shirt belong in the trash?
Better tie color choice than brown?
