What color shirt, tie, pocket square, socks, shoes, to wear with this oddly patterned Zegna suit?

I got a great deal on this suit and it fits quite well. I'm just not exactly sure what to wear with it. I can't seem to figure anything out except white shirt, black shoes, black socks, white linen square...nothing else is working in my mind.

Congrats on a beautiful suit,

I could see it with lots of variations; light blue or pink solid shirts, try it with finely striped or micro checked shirts as well (although that might clash with the texture of the suit fabric).

Dark grey or navy ties, e.g. wool or grenadine. Solid or with a subdued pattern.

Burgundy or dark brown shoes would be perfect

Actually, the only limitation I can think of is too large patterns on shirts and tie, but the over check is so subtle, the risk is not that great.

Thanks for the tips. For some reason I just wasn't seeing it.

Good choice, Manhappenin. With black shoes and belt, white shirt and silk tie, etc, it would be suitable for business in many settings; but it's far more versatile than that. Erpet's advice was very sound- in particular the light blue shirts, grenadine ties and dark brown shoes. (I reckon the suit is versatile enough to wear with Oxfords, smarter derbies/ bluchers or even chukka boots.) You can then experiment with various pocket squares...
