I own a plaid corduroy jacket, a tie with wide horizontal stripes (which I have worn with a bengal-stripe OCBD [vertical stripes]) and I would also wear horizontally striped corduroy. I draw the line at horizontal stripes on a suit and I don't think I'd wear a dress shirt with horizontal stripes either. It's OK for more casual wear, but not with a suit.
The MASH episode was great, as many are.
