Navy suit, white shirt, black oxfords, black/silver tie, and white pocket square. Personal favourite! For example: Or other ideas:
I frequently do this. I like my squares on the small side, and thrift a fair few ties on Ebay. About 20% of the time, the ties turn out disappointing for one reason or another, but the fabric is still promising, so I get the shears out, and turn the tie into a PS.

I don't know why people beat up tonal ties. Silver, black, and white combinations are my favourite! Nothing compliments a navy double-breasted suit better!
Drape seems to be taken in this context to be cutting and tailoring such that manipulation of darts and the canvas bias to afford a little slack in some areas. Which can be true, but I think it's more of an aesthetic effect than a technical method of manufacture. Consider dressmaking, where elegant drape is created by (among other things): Cutting the fabric on the bias Choosing the correct weight fabric Choosing a style of cut that allows the fabric to drape...
