So, too similar sized patterns? Not doing two checks together? Faux paux city or cool?
Thanks for the input guys, I new to mixed patterns.
Yes, for my taste the patterns are a little too similar in type and scale, although tattersalls are classic with a tweed. The effect is made a bit worse by the similarity in colouring and the fact that you have no patterns anywhere else. I think that with any brownish tweed it's difficult to go wrong with a solid light blue shirt.
I think tweed jackets go well with denim generally (much as I would love to advise you to bust out the full rig with moleskins/cords, sweater vest, tie with little pheasants on etc.) - but perhaps here the jacket is a bit too fitted against the bagginess of the jeans.
Kai, I really like that herringbone and you look very warm indeed.
