How about this one?

Note that this also has the disadvantage of being the (apparently) verboten patterned linen

At first I thought you were complimenting the suit, and then I remembered which thread I was in. smile.gif

I personally think it looks great. The shirt's pattern from afar will be just a blank piece of canvas for your tie to stand out. It is only when near that all the details present itself.

From the ethandeu.tumblr archives.

It seems that a functionally solid piece is a constant in the multi-patterned ensembles that I am fond of.

Is that a herringbone tie with a herringbone jacket? The orange in the shirt is also a little weird to me with the red in the tie.

The herringbones of the tie and jacket are nearly vibrating to my eye. It hurts my brain.

not crazy about black/white houndstooth pants, they are too "restauranty" for me, and is the shirt grey?

They're navy/white, not black/white. Here's a better picture of the shirt, I'm not exactly sure how to describe the colors. White with kind of a light bluish/grayish stripe?

since you are wearing patterns in the pants/jacket/tie, I would suggest keep the shirt a solid or near solid. Given the pant colors and shoe choice, I would have gone with a darker tie. The belt looks like it served a tour of duty in Bill Clinton's White House.

I realize that there are a lot of patterns. In the spirit of this thread, suppose for the purpose of looking at this that I was required to wear patterned coat, tie, shirt, ps, and pants today.

The darker tie was definitely a consideration. I tried out a chocolate brown knit with pink dots but decided I liked the stripes better. But I do appreciate the idea of a darker tie

Explain more about the belt? It looks worn? Dated? Southern? Political?

What is wrong with you people?

Speaking for myself, stupidity, turpitude, laziness, alcoholism...I'm sure I could think of some more.
