What's wrong with a little tone on tone? Would you also consider a black and gold tie on a black and gold shirt too matchy matchy? You need to live a little!

I wear navy ties with navy suits a bit. They are never exactly the same shade, so I think that's okay. For instance, I have a vintage Italian silk knit tie which is useful with a navy suit. It's darker than most of my suits and it has a really knobbly texture.

With white KC shoes dooode!!

But seriously, non tone-on-tone is just a personal preference; what works best for me.

Love navy knit ties BTW.

I'm a huge fan of navy. Love to combine it with shades of grey, purple and brown, and light blue of course. Sometimes with orange too.

Actually right now I'm wearing a purple turtleneck sweater, navy trousers and socks, and espresso brown wholecuts.

I would have thought that if you extended your shoulders somewhat, it would allow for more drape and get you closer to your desired 'swellness'.

Personally not a fan, but they can certainly work.

No - I just don't like it. I'm in the white/cream linen PS camp.

That sort of pocket square matching is too advanced for me.

Here's a good example of navy on navy. Simple but not simplistic.
