Looks fine to me, though I'd probably go with a solid tie, and in any case, not that one. The main thing to watch for with pattern mixing is changing the scales - i.e. no 1/2" striped shirt with a 1/2" striped jacket, etc.
i agree...for the most part when wearing a checked shirt with a striped suit i will go with a smallish check - i suppose maybe this works better to my eye because the shirt can almost be treated as a solid. i have, more rarely, worn a gingham patterned shirt with a striped suit but have to be careful with this.
i either use a solid tie with these combinations or a tie that has a lot of ground and a wide-spaced pattern
Your not really supposed to mix style when it comes to suits and shirts, but this outfits looks modest enought to me. I would go with a solid color tie though to cut back on the distracting look a bit.
I'm not used to wearing suits/ties beyond funeral/interview/wedding situations, where I traditionally have worn solid shirts. would like to try something different for a wedding this weekend. Saturday night in the city, but certainly not black tie or black tie optional. want to wear something with a little more flavor/fun.
would this shirt work with this suit? blue or orange ties the best?
