Good combo.
Zoom in, it's a blue donegal..
While I like this as-is, but because it's essentially pattern-less, one could be stuck in here, just one, without ill effect. Maybe a blue&white stripe shirt.

Nah. I'd leave as-is, with the 'sand' shirt.

So I'm talking to myself here, should stop that.

What is the purpose of that collar tab...It seems to pair with the button on the collar, but if the lapel is buttoned, would the tab make any difference?
The button hole on a narrow or narrowish lapel cannot reach to the button on the other side short of garroting the wearer and squenching the jacket out of shape. The throat latch bridges that gap. I know this because I live in the Northland and often actually use these contraptions, but the question is fair as is the jacket. You may be unfamiliar with the expoundment invented by Jackie Gleason in the mid-50s, but its use is appropriate for the jacket being discussed, va-va-va-voooooom.
