I have the same tie. It really is a white shirt tie. I also don't think I've ever worn it with a navy jacket and stick to wearing it with my suits in various shades of grey. I think it looks fine the way tdude is wearing it, but I tend to prefer wearing my grey and silver ties with blue jackets.
Last time I wore that tie was with a solid grey suit and solid pink shirt. Thought that combo was nice (but I am not objective in that assessment). Maybe next time I will try it with a blue or striped shirt.
