Blue shirt, green wool tie, tobacco suede shoes will be a good match, perhaps a white linen pocket square add on

Depends on the occasion.

I tried to think of options that wouldn't go with that suit, and I came up short with the single exception being rubber flip flops.

Pencil or chalk stripes usually mean business wear, but I don't know if anyone would bat an eyelash in this day and age at any occasion below black tie, if your shirt was white or pale blue, your tie navy or charcoal, and your shoes and accessories black cordovan shell or calf.

Wow! What a deal! How does it fit? Any damages?

I actually got it because it reminded me of Duran Duran. For $20, I figured I could take a risk.

Two button suit. Fits perfectly and will not need any tailoring. Zero damage and no stains.
It is probably not worn much.
