    That's the most common color I've seen it. I think the jacket looks fine, but probably needs a white shirt and not a navy tie.

    With a white PS, it's okay. The tie is not in bad taste, but it's a bit I'm Running For Office.

    This tie is more "sporty". Keep it for a solid navy blazer or tan suit. Choose something solid or with small repeated pattern. The pocket square doesn't work here either. You have such elegant suit pattern, just wear a white linen. .

    A windowpane suit is an elegant look. Windowpane is also quite a statement so be reserved with the other elements.

    Thanks, gentlemen. Points well-taken.

    Funny thing is, I hold elective office.

    Where's your American flag lapel pin? Isn't that part of the uniform?

    I think you mean 'elected', unless it's just an office you chose... [​IMG]
