    A pleated formal shirt and a black bow tie would help a lot.

    Not for that outfit. It'd just look a little wierd - a blend of modern and traditional that just doesn't go.

    Yes, if I was going to go for a bow tie and formal shirt I would go for the Pal Z. tuxedo, as described in this thread

    I like the color combo, but the tie is a little bit thin for my tastes, although it's not too visible in the picture.

    The tie is very thin.

    The photo is dark but a single button shawl collar jacket is not something I would call modern.

    When the jacket is short, black and worn in the evening, a long tie is a sartorial malapropism.

    Although agreed, if that is the case with the 'black and worn in the evening, a long tie is a sartorial malapropism.' But the jacket is very long.
