I tried that but i felt that the suit really overpowered a more subdued tie and then it tended to look rather old fashioned as well. It looks good with a sky blue tie as well. These pale grey suits are quite trendy now but do only look really good with a few shirt tie combinations I think. If you get it wrong the look is rather weak think Nixon vs Kennedy or it actually looks rather cheap.
Cloth is 16 oz by the way, very warm.
