    First of all, wtf happened in your room? Secondly, the pictures are not great enough to show the color difference, but based on what you've said I would not wear the items together. I OCD on these items and for me the color would have to match or offer a bit more contrast.

    Don't do this. Wear grey, khaki, wine, red, white—-any color but blue.

    Dude, return the pants, take the money and hire a cleaning woman for one day. Will improve the whole look, I promise.

    (no, you can't wear those pants with that jacket)

    You can wear blue pants with a blue blazer, but they've got to be clearly different or exactly the same - not close in color. Close looks like a mistake.

    Is that a Ralph Lauren made in China US Olympic Team opening ceremony blazer? It looks like one, minus the pony logo. I woudn't do blue pants with a blue blazer, try white or grey or something.

    BTW tidy your room and clean the mirror before taking pictures next time, looks like the place has been ransacked..

    They look dreadful - send them back. And while you are at it tidy your room, that too is dreadful.

    +2 . Just about any colour except blue will work. Also, The jacket seems to be worsted wool and I am not sure that works well with linen trousers, regardless of colour.

    Also, that is one damn dirty mirror you have there.....
