Hahaha. I was always told that the only three things that should match absolutely identically are your socks, cuff links, and the fabric of your suit, pants, and vest (if present).

Or maybe "... unless you're a style icon".

The mistake was in asking their opinion.

Heavens, I was just yesterday pairing a boldly striped red and blue tie with a blue and white Bengal-striped shirt. I thought I looked pretty good, anyway, and the female security guard at the local market complimented me on my attire, not that I rate the approval of female security guards as being worth much, "hateful snob" that I am. I conjoin striped ties with striped shirts with great frequency.

In terms of raw pattern matching, I guess it works.

I appreciate the response. It is a poor picture with an iPhone.

In general, I, and most people here, are not a fan of shirts that do not have a 'base' color of white or light blue. If the shirt is a solid color, it's not dark.

Dark shirts, IMO, just don't work.

The tie is also a little too "jr's first tie"

If you have some extra cash lying around, check out the Buying & Selling forum. I saw some pretty good ties for ~$15.

You could probably get a really nice shirt & tie for under $100

Both look like thrift store finds to me. Nothing wrong with that at all.

The combination works, that's what he was asking. Others may disagree.

I'm new to the whole scene - getting into the business world, but something I wore for a presentation.
