Looking for some Suit-Shirt-Tie matching ideas

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Was hoping to get some ideas on a shirt to wear with the suit and tie below. Going to an outdoor wedding this weekend.

Grey/Blueish cotton suit with a faint stripe. Red white and blue tie.

A nice white shirt will work for sure as well as a solid light blue shirt but I was hoping to get some creative ideas from you guys.

Two concerns. The suit has a bit of a blue tone to it in certain lighting so I'm not sure if a blue shirt really is a good choice. Perhaps not enough contrast? I have some shirts with a vertical stripe but again I'm not sure if the stripe in the suit and a striped shirt together is the best idea.

Perhaps a grid or check pattern? Any ideas are appreciated. TIA

Quite a busy suit and tie so the obvious choice would be a plain shirt, a simple white cotton or linen shirt might look good. Pink might also work.

Ya, a plain shirt. White probably. Hard to match such a light suit with anything else.

That's what I was thinking. Hard to go wrong with a proper white shirt. Just checking to see if there was some awesome idea that never occurred to me.

Hmm, now for the pocket square...

Vintage blue bandanna? Maybe red? Dots perhaps?

Dots

With such a loud tie I'm not sure a polka dot pattern is the wisest choice. Hard to visualise without seeing it all together though.

white shirt, white pocket square would probably look good.

I'd go for a plain white pocket square. Striped suit, checked tie, plain shirt... Adding a pocket square with a different pattern is excesive diversity IMO.

White square was the original choice, and a safe bet that I know will work. I'm going to see if I can find a vintage dot square today and give that a dance. It may work out but will probably be too much. We shall see...

Thanks for the input.
