If it is dove grey (i.e very light) and a really pale blue shirt, I would say, maybe (it's had to match colors without having the garments right there). I see this tie as being in no man's land. It is neither light enough nor dark enough to match strength with a darker wool suit, imo. This is a very seasonal tie. I could see it with something linen (even dark linen) or a light colored tropical wool or cotton number, but otherwise, I'd give it a pass.
