Thankfully, no problems thus far, and I've had it for the past 14 years. It's actually a Japanese import that was brought in by a friend of mine who bought in when she was working in Japan and privately imported it when she came back to Australia.
As a consequence, it differs a bit from the Australian versions, as it has leather seats, headrest speakers, front driving lights, and a higher redline (which also means that I have to feed it premium unleaded).
CEP, a few years back I used to do exactly that, and I would usually wear the shirt with a plain navy cashmere tie.
However, over the past few years I've either become more daring (or more tasteless) and I've started to combine patterns more. I think that, even though the printed tie has a reasonably busy pattern, because of the small scale of the pattern and the complementary colours, it works well with the striped shirt.
