I've got a couple of beige/light tan suits, one in cotton and one in wool, and I always wear them with sky-blue shirts unless I feel a bit more daring - see photo below:

 , that suit looks a bit flat on its hanger, but I reckon you can make it pop. Looking forward to your pics.
Thanks guys. I will wear it with sky blue shirt. the suit itself is indeed a bit flat - as its unstructured . Will post an elevator selfie .

But really, the mullet never left us. The young'ns are sporting variations of the mullet. Just not the Classico Mulleto

 

Reporting live from Bankstown - the mullet is survived by its children, the rat-tail and mudflap.

And the All Blacks held on to beat the Boks. Now for getting up at 2am Monday morning to watch the Wallabies.

Mark and Gino Stocco - Spotted in linen khaki suits, blue shirt and navy grenadine HC of course. Mark had brown suede dub monks while Gino opted for a pair of brown leather chukkas.

Although yfyf (mark) wears it very nicely, I find (purple) gingham to be too busy against lighter suiting. My preference is a nice light blue stripe.

Two guys who can legitimately wear the bushranger beards.

Yeah I was somewhat joking, although as a general color point I think a light blue or purple shirt can work with a beige/tan suit if it's the right tone. Of course a simple white shirt and navy or burgundy tie always works but maybe those are too simple. I think blue, say linen, is a good interesting starting point.

I always think a crisp white shirt with a cotton or linen tan suit looks best -for some occasions. Black knit tie. Pale pink linen (plain or striped) open necked shirt looks good too. Light coloured cotton or linen suits are the only permissible suits to wear sans tie. Except for a black architect's/graphic designer's suit perhaps at cocktails/night party.

I wore a cream, almost straw-coloured suit to a wedding and without even thinking 'paired' it with a light blue spread collar shirt and burgundy textured knit tie. To use the SF lingo, I got 'lots of compliments' (ok one definite, and a few 'well look at that' type comments...)

Not sure about a black tie and white shirt, FXH!

It is believed they have modified their grenadines (by tying them in full Windsors) in an attempt to hoodwink the constabulary.

I tend to agree. I do have a very pale pink cotton shirt - which I may try tomorrow. I did this shirt with a linen grey suit and was happy with overall neutral appearance. I also tried a light grey linen suit with pale blue shirt and I think it may have popped a bit more colours than my liking.
First pic with pale pink( looks almost white from a meter) and second one with sky blue.

He wants colour suggestions not baking ingredients.
