    Not entirely sure if this is the best thread for this question, but does this go together well? I’m fairly new at matching various colors and patterns so any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Absolutely loving this Filson Mile Marker jacket: olive drab waxed cotton with a moleskin collar. Very comfy and practical on a day with light rain.

    Interesting shoes. I don’t think they go with the rest. Probably better to just go with black, less chunky shoes. The pants might do well with being longer and more tapered.
    Scarf is nice but doesn’t go with the rest. The square, I’m afraid, won’t go with much. That pattern seems difficult to match, IMO.

    Also, I wouldn’t do that thing where you stuff your scarf inside your suit jacket. It’s making the jacket seem really boxy and tight.

    Thanks. So seems like I went out of hand on the blending and too many things are sticking out?

    Gerry, are you able to comment on the construction method used by Astorflex? If so, how well do you think it's been executed? I've been looking for a crepe soled suede chukka/shoe for a while now, and anything cemented is a deal breaker. Your pair look to be made on a welt from what I can see.

    It's a hand stitched welt and the desert boots/shoes I have all appear to be well made. I think they're a great deal for the price.

    Agree with @shirtsnob , pants are a bit too casual. The color still works though, but aside from navy I think brown would also work well.
