Anyone ever pulled off wearing a houndstooth or POW tie and trousers or is this frowned upon as too much of a matchy matchy?

I'm usually into solids, slowly dipping my toes into the pool of patterns. Not sure what the etiquette is here.

When I was a POW we were not allowed to wear tweeds.

Actually it was an Italian Camp, Campo Sprezzatura, just outside of Naples.
