Thanks!Don't be so hard on yourself. Fit looks pretty good to me!
No horizontally striped trousers?
I strongly disagree with this suggestion. I like it as-is, but if I were to suggest an improvement it would be to use a lower-contrast stripe for the shirt.
Edited to incorporate @sugarbutch 's reply
Sport coat and trousers work well together.
Mostly agree with @FlowableFill, although I would try the shirt/sport coat combo with a solid tie and see if that brings it together. Agree with SB, but would definitely recommend a solid tie if you are keeping the shirt in the outfit.
Regardless, either the shirt or tie need to be solid.
Great feedback all around. My feeling is that this fit works and was fun to put together but is fussier than it needs to be. I’d likely wear this again with a solid shirt.Agree with Sugarbutch. Neither the shirt nor the tie needs to be solid. Check out Alan Flusser's style tips. It's fine that the jacket and shirt patterns are of similar scale, so long as the tie stripes are a different scale than the shirt's, which these are. Yes, it's tricky to mix patterns well, but it's been done masterfully here.
Confession: I did not wear this sport coat today. I chose a different sport coat last night, but I didn’t like it this morning. I ended up just wearing the vest and no jacket for much of the day. My jackets are in my son’s room and he was sleeping. I didn’t want to wake him up to get a different jacket. Anyway this is the jacket I would have worn.

It seems to me that it is the combination of coat and vest that jars the eye. The patterns are both very prominent and are close together in scale.I like all of the items on their own, just not together
