    The proper match for it is a match.

    Don't listen to the above responses
    the jacket is perfect for the event and award.
    it is a fun jacket for a fun event.

    the white pants look great
    maybe pick up the teal.
    Navy will work if you want to tone it down.

    look for a bowtie that can pick up a color in it
    teal , navy, etc.
    but do not match the shade of the tie to the pants

    You might wanna mention this on the SW&D forum, as it's not exactly classic. I see a Hawaiian theme in the jacket. You might want to use that theme as a springboard for the whole outfit. Because of this pic, I'll be thinking luau all day! Pass the snout!

    It´s way too short. Also loose the hankie or the ensemble will be too busy.

    A decent bonfire would be a good accompaniment.
