Stichy, the question is: What's your focal point?

The shirt? The tie? The suit / jacket?

These days, I prefer to let the tie (and occasionally, the suit / jacket) do the talking; this means I require shirts in highly neutral tones, of which sky-blue is my go-to. Except for a very pale purple gingham-check twill, all I ever wear these days is blue shirts (plain or consertively patterned).

Don't get me wrong; I'm not advocating loud, satiny ties or overly fussy jackets.

I AM saying that I prefer the tie or the jacket to have more 'visual interest' than the shirt.

An overabundance of visually interesting garments or accessories in any ensemble leaves the eye confused as to where to look, and ruins the entire effect.

well, my focal point is all 3. at present i am not looking for any one piece to stand out. i want to always be wearing a coherent combination that looks good, and brings out the best in each item.

If nothing else you will want a ton of light blue solid shirts. Don't worry, this is usually a late-in-coming discovery that everyone wishes they had done from day one.

For a contrasting opinion, I prefer exceedingly boring jackets with a nice striped shirt. OTOH, if wearing a tie, I will likely go for a solid shirt as you get more flexibility in the tie pattern.
