In answer to your question, dark green or brown. Burgundy can work. Bright red is too much color.

....agreed 100%. This anti-purple commentary is asinine. It doesn't have anything to do with "classic" menswear.

 

OP, what are you going to wear the shirt with?

It's a good looking shirt. But if you're going to use the pictured stripe tie, it's better if the suit is solid.

+1

Solid midnight blue can work as well

Agree about the solid navy, or a patterned navy, but I don't agree about lavender at all. Not a fan of tone-on-tone, especially in unusual colors (which I'll concede purple is).

how about a black tie

There are quite a few options, but I would suggest a solid khaki (very light khaki) tie (monochromatic), and preferably one that doesn't look military issued.

As for the shirt: the subtler the purple - the better.

But you haven't answered the key question: what are you wearing this shirt/tie combo with?
