Houndstooth/Check Suits for Incoming Analyst?

Hey monkeys,

Starting in July at a buy-side shop as a first-year analyst. I have a basic navy suit already but I got a SuitSupply gift card for Christmas so looking to get another. I know I should probably just get a plain charcoal suit, but that's just so fucking boring. I was thinking of getting something like this:

Would I be able to wear either of these in the office as a first-year? Since it is a buy-side gig I'm hoping that it's a little less conservative than something like IB. Lemme know what u guys think
