    I like where you're going with this, but the shirt isn't working with that tie.
    You don't want a green tie with a pattern at a 45 degree angle with a shirt with green vertical stripes. And the shirt is maybe a little large/long in the arms.

    I don't personally like to use exactly complementary colors, because they pop too much. In this case you look like a christmas gift. It just looks tacky to my eye.

    That's why brown, khaki, and army green work well in a palette, because they work with almost anything and aren't overwhelming. That shirt might actually work if you put a neutral colored blazer on, and no tie, but I'd have to see it.

    Lose the tie period with such plaid, burn the tie on the account of it being horrid, and take that shirt to get tailored, because those sleeves are baggy.

    Perhaps I will try tieless with a medium gray merino wool cardigan next time? Would that appropriately subdue the palette?

    Also, I am mostly working with what I have in my closet at this point. My suit and shoes for my interviews was a big investment given I am a student living on loans. I see a lot of items on b/s I like but am still tentative. I am trying to move away from t-shirt jeans to button downs chinos and crisp well fitted jeans. I am thinking that J crew secret wash shirts might be a good place to start at a reasonable price point.

    I think a gray cardigan would be better, although I still don't like the shirt much :D

    I also thought that you were hinting there was some Yohji in your fit cos of the "Y", hehe. Fit is sweet regardless. Those sleeves are killer :slayer:.
