Thanks!  It's a wool/silk that I wear pretty often in the colder months.

Welcome!

 

Not bad for a first post. A few nit-picks if I may:

 

Shirt collar is meh. Try a spread collar next time, or a button-down with a nice roll (e.g. Kamakura or Brooks Bros).

 

Trousers are too close in colour to the jacket, making the outfit "neither fish nor fowl". Are they chinos? A nice sand chino or even an olive would have worked well here. Better still, some light grey flannels with a nice crisp seam would have been great.

 

If the tie is a knit, it gets a strong pass. But anything else and it's too thin. (I'm guessing it's a knit due to the square tip.)

 

Keep 'em coming!

Yes the tie is a 2 inch knit tie. My regular ties are all 2.5 inches in width. I never go with anything wider then 2.5 inches because i'm pretty slim and they look too large on me. The shirt is not my best. I have a lot of MTM shirts that look much better including one with blue and white strips with a contrasting white spread collar that looks great with this jacket. I've always been skeptical of this jacket and pant combination because of how close they are in color, however in person the pants are significantly darker then the jacket. They are a very dark navy color almost a full on black. And while this goes against the rule of not wearing a sport coat with pants that are too similar in color, I am always satisfied with the look because the contrast of the pants really looks great with the lighter glen plaid blue of the jacket. Its very easy to tell they are made of completely separate fabrics in person so much that it doesn't look like i'm trying to match them. Thanks for the input though!

If you really believe what you said about wide ties not looking good on you, at least meet us in the middle with an 8 cm tie.  You might just like it enough to start wearing more traditional ties.  Also, the point collar shirt isn't my cup of tea.  Lastly, I lost interest about halfway through your justification of wearing trousers and sc of same color.  Just don't do it, please.

+1 to trying wider ties. Once you actually put one on and wear it, you'll be surprised at how flattering it can be. Back in my GQ days, I was all about 2.0-2.5 inch ties, I've been replacing them with 3.5" on standard ties and at least 2.75" on knits and I couldn't be more pleased. I'd say try a 3" one day and see how you like it.

With all that said, the overall fit is quite nice, and it would be a shame to not take that away as a positive in the midst of friendly recommendations.

How can this fit still be at 8 thumbs. SF bias

Not a fan of the tie-square combo--to matchy and polka dot squares are generally meh. Suit looks nice though.

I think the contrast is big enough to create an interesting look but I'd remove the tie clip.

Socks is your friend. If it's cool enough for a DB with a shirt and tie; socks should be no problem. Otherwise, i generally like.
