    Is the shirt and tie the same colour?

    not exactly, but they are similar. I was hoping the stripes in the shirt and the tie would create enough contrast

    On its own, the combo doesn't look good. But it might look better if worn with a solid navy suit.

    I say when dealing with similar colours, it is better for the tie to be a few shades darker. As the purple is the dominant colour for the tie, the stripes isn't really going to help that much.

    Oh shit... that tie was camouflaging like crazy. I thought it a weird patterned shirt.

    Felt like I was look at:

    Would look better with a solid tie.

    People need to learn boring before they can advance to stripes on stripes.

    I'd rather go with a burgundy. But now that you mention it, OP probably doesn't have a navy tie yet. If don't have a navy tie, go buy a navy. They are great for lazy days anyway.

    I thought about wearing a burgundy. These are the only two I have, and I'm quite sure either one would go.
