The breast pocket flap on the jacket is high functional, preventing adding a PS
I am unclear what this means. Did you intend to say "highly functional"? And what is a PS? I thought of Polo Shirt, obviously, but it did not make sense given the context. Also, earlier you referred to OCUD shirts, and that escaped me too. (Google was not much help in either case).

Perhaps these abbreviations are something very obvious that I'm missing -- you know, I'm getting old!

"High" should have been "highly."
PS = Pocket square, an abbreviation I have seen used here in the past.
OCUD is my own creation, made up especially for Ralph. It stands for Oxford Cloth Unbuttoned Down. 😜

I can see @upr_crust wearing today's Ralph outfit. While he usually puts more color in his outfits, he does, occasionally, lean monochromatic. I can just easily see Upr wearing that entire ensemble.
I could certainly see myself wearing the suit, though I might be a little less adventuresome in mixing my patterned accessories, and yes, on occasion, I do go monochromatic - not often, but it does happen.

I thought it might be unbuttoned, but had never seen that used before, LOL. And I should have figured out PS for pocket square since it makes good sense with the pocket flap. Thans for the clarifications, old boy! One lives and learns.

I have a messed up penchant for acronyms and making up names. They never catch on.

A sedate overall impression despite mixing plaids and another horizontally striped shirt. The breast pocket flap on the jacket is highly functional, preventing adding a PS. I love PS, but with that outfit I shudder to think what might have been selected. A black and white M.C.Escher, perhaps?
Nice suit and tie but the shirt is unacceptable.

Sample size for men's fashion models is typically 40R. When the cut of that jacket and the sweater are factored in, that sample should have been 41R , but samples are made one time, at the very start of the selling cycle. That model looks uncomfortable, and a bit foolish, but he gets paid for it.

I do love the look of the rig, but certainly not the fit...he looks like 3 pounds stuffed in a two pound sack! ;)

I agree with this ⇧ but would add that I think a 41L would be an even better choice.

That said, there's a lot going on in that outfit - more patterns in one than I'd ever attempt - but I like it anyway.
