Those are very festive colors but ever since someone pointed out your tie knots I can't help but chime in constructively:
You need to learn some of the basic knots and master them because even with your amazing fits, the ties sometimes kill them.
I personally started learning how to tie knots watching youtube tutorials and that seemed to work just fine.
That is a prince albert tie knot and the problem here is, that the tweed tie is too thick for that knot.
Changed that to a 4IH knot and I think it´s the better knot for the given tie. Here a detail shot:

Tie and square too matchy. The color palate you have chosen is too formal, for the casual styling of the jacket. I can't see the fabric that much, but it looks like fabric (color as well) that is better suited for, well, business suiting.post #67689 of 787171/6/14 at 8:29amQuote:
A simple dot tie would be fine, no? Darker blue to go with the lighter blue pinstripe? What about a repp tie?
I think one of the small polka dot ties that I've seen butch wear would go well. Any reason you wouldn't try a solid burgundy or navy tie as well?post #67690 of 787171/6/14 at 8:35ampost #67691 of 787171/6/14 at 9:11ampost #67692 of 787171/6/14 at 9:12am
Could have gone a little bolder with the PS and it blends into the jacket a bit. It's yellow and purple houndstooth. The pattern matches but it stands out a bit in person.
The jacket is a daks (thanks @330CK)
Tie is a hickey freeman cashmere/wool/silk blend. (thanks @Randomore)
Pants are actually grey birdseye in person, the j crew moon tweed pants.post #67693 of 787171/6/14 at 9:20amMy triumphant return to the office begins today.
At least, that's what I'm calling it to make it feel more festive.

Here's my take on this. I say these with good intention so don't take it the wrong way.
- The jacket does not fit you and it even appears long for you.
- The tie and the jacket doesn't provide any contrast and quite honestly the tie is ugly.
- The shirt? I don't like it 'cus I don't like button down collar shirts (personal op).post #67695 of 787171/6/14 at 9:36am
