Q. Anybody able to provide a lesson on these? I know that black and white glenplaid is always right, but what else can you do? Can you wear a navy and white glenplaid, or are you limited to black, white and silver?

A (from user @Manton ): Shepherd's check is, IMO, the ne plus ultra of wedding ties, and my favorite. Black/white/silver/gray is the safest and most iconic color palate. But dark blue can substitute for black and is very elegant.
