any recommendations would be greatly appreciated
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.
what would you recommend?
I plan on wearing the shirt with grey pants
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.
How about one of these two? Better!?
no but the first one here is the best of the lot. Do yourself a favor and just get a solid navy tie to go with that shirt.
But solid navy is so boring, edmorel!!!
People need to learn boring before they can advance to stripes on stripes.
Agreed, go with a solid color tie
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 think I'm gonna go with a knit solid navy.
I thought about wearing a burgundy. These are the only two I have, and I'm quite sure either one would go.
