How about blue check shirts?
If you must have dark blue colors in your dress shirts, why not have a variety, including french blue (I also own a french blue bengal stripe OCBD, in addition to my solid french blue OCBDs)?
Especially in winter, when everyone seems to wear darker colors, I like to go slightly darker than the hackneyed combination of khaki trousers, light blue shirt, and navy blazer by wearing either tan cords or light brown tweed trousers with a french blue shirt and navy blazer.
French blue shirts have their place, though I agree they can be harder to coordinate than light blue.
