What color blue? Is it Navy? Dark Navy? Royal? Slate? Like if I was looking at HFW Irish Linen, they do Navy, Dark navy, and slate. Navy and D Navy are pretty similar, but slate is quite different.
In general when I wear linen if I'm wearing a tie (which I like to), I like to go for ties that give good texture and look casual - shantung, grenadine, knits. Self tipping, that kind of thing. No super shiny smooth ties.
As far as shoes - really depends how you want to do it I think. Loafers sans socks would be a pretty standard choice I think. A woven raffia slipper could look cool, or a bit loafer.
I think linen can be dressed down or up as you see fit really. I assume your Irish linen is in the weighter range around 320-380 grams?
