Hi, Welcome to the forum.
I'm moving your thread to menswear advice, where it may get a better reception, and also be of help to other newer members who might have a similar question.
I would definitely advise against that and any other shirt with French cuffs...too formal. For trousers, get yourself some cords, chinos, linen, etc. For shirts, get some oxford cloth button downs and a few checked patterns in various fabrics. Some nice boots (i.e., Alden chukka) or maybe a grained wingtip derby and you'll be set.
