Is it acceptable to wear a black tie with a navy blazer or a navy suit?

Literary James Bond typically wore a navy suit, white shirt, and black tie.

I don't know why but for some reason a black tie with a navy jacket doesn't seem as bad to me as a navy tie with a black jacket.

With navy suit, yes. With navy blazer with gold buttons, I can't imagine how.
