But would charcoal instead of navy work is my question? I feel like SF would say no, but I personally feel like I can look good in black/charcoal/grays. Eh.

 

I do want a blue windowpane SC also, but one with a lighter base and darker pane like this as posted here before:

 

 

But a dark base with white stripes I think would have a very different more city/urban vibe, like a blazer as opposed to a rustic SC.

That's awesome. The pane looks wider though, no?

 

I don't know, it's difficult to judge the scale of the swatch that @Isolation posted.

This SC is from DocHolliday, I'm sure he has a lot more than 10 jackets in his closet... FWIW, of all the fits I've seen from him, I think this is the only one I do not like.

Navy blue would seem like an obvious choice...

Agreed. Just nothing flashy overall. That, white shirt, "boring" tie and the black oxfords. Then you can focus on selling yourself.

I need tie guidance, grey you might think is pretty boring but nobody wears grey ties (from what i can see) so it might make me stand out to much. GUIDANCE??? White pocket square, yes or no?

Can't see what's to like aobut this.  Kale PS aside, the jacket cloth is IMO bad for an SC + bad for a suit too.  Not a fan of high contrast box checks.  They look comical.  Suity box checks work in low contrast IMO pref with  slightly fuzzy grid lines, like Claghorn's navy Fresco.  I don't mind them on a  dark flannel, low contrast .
