    Hey, I want to first thank SF for the huge amount of knowledge and experience. I can say that I will never buy a fuzed jacket again and I am way more savvy than I was.

    What I need some suggestions on is this SS suit I love. I want to wear more with it than just a white shirt, so what are your suggestions for patterns and colors. I'm thinking an off white or light beige shirt and a mid brown kit tie would work but other than that I am at a loss.

    I think this tie : http://r.ebay.com/qL3RQV
    But what other ties could be an option?

    What are your thoughts?

    Off the top of my head, a burgundy or port grenadine tie, a navy knit or wool tie, and a blue and dream POW (Prince-of-Wales) tie would all work.

    Light blue shirts would work fine. Brown, burgundy, and navy grenadine ties would all work. Does the suit have a light brown windowpane?

    Yeah it has a big check with the same color brown as the back of the vest, so I know I can work that color. What do you think about medium brown jeans? Kinda the opposite of a medium blue shirt with jeans and a brown sport coat.
