    Which of these ties goes better with the suit/shirt?

    I'm leaning towards the black but heard mixed things about black ties with navy suits.

    Unless it's a black knit tie, which is a great look with a navy suit.

    Between the two the OP is asking about...purple.

    I recently tried wearing my black/gray striped ties with a navy suit and realized that it just looked bad. I had assumed that they would work with anything, but that is apparently not correct. I had to go buy a burgundy tie. I am a noob, but that is my 2 cents.
