Your look is OK if a little bland but a hundred times better than a company logo polo shirt and khakis so credit to you for taking the high road. I have a feeling you will get slaughtered for the sport coat, which looks dated and very unflattering. Baggy, boxy fit, odd buttoning point, very low gorge (where your lapel notches are). Also general SF consensus is that it's a lot harder to pair trousers with a light coloured odd jacket than a darker one (navy, charcoal etc.) Anyway welcome and stick around. Lots to learn here.
Thanks for the advice. I have to start somewhere and I figure I only have room to go up. Meanwhile, today's effort was rushed due to last minute changes at work. My RL khakis were horribly unpressed and will not be appearing in this thread. However, here's a closeup of the Zenga shirt and Fratelli Moda tie. The cord jacket is another rescue gone awry but it seemed to complete the monotone look. Have patience.
New job relegates SF to post-bedtime, so a lot of catching up to do.
(Also, re: Spoo 2.0: Spoo 1.0 might not have been a finished product, but there were worthwhile features. Don't get too soporific on us... [not that there's anything wrong with that"”I like Manton's thread, too])
I see you've already gotten some flack for the red check with the tie, but I suspect your personality (as I imagine it to be) gives you some leeway on these things. Rock on. Cool pic with Lil Ranger, too.

Finally, I think the button stance is a bit too high for your shape. Bringing it down some would lengthen the lines a bit and visually slim your torso.
