Fabric for ascot picked out, how to match with outfit

I picked out a fabric that will be made into an ascot. I just am not sure as to what shirt I would wear it with it. This will be my first ascot and I am definitely an amateur in fashion style. Any suggestions? I'll be wearing it to some upscale restaurants.

As an ascot enthusiast, I would have to say that the color scheme looks rather feminine...that it would be better as a woman's scarf. (No offense intended, seriously.) About the only shirt that I personally would consider pairing with an ascot made from that fabric would be a white one. Just my $.02.

Thanks for the reply. A couple friends suggested either dark blue or light blue too. What do you think? I can try it on with a few different shirt colors when I receive it but I want to get a preliminary idea first (rather than the whole spectrum of colors). I don't take any offense. It's fabric from Liberty of London and they mainly do cater to women lol. But I like the pattern!

Take it for what it's worth (this is a woman giving advice) but I agree with your friends. I would do a light blue chambray-style shirt or a dark blue color - white might be too harsh for this color scheme.

For what it's worth, I had the ascot made and I like it, as well as received compliments on it. I'm satisfied

Looks quite a bit better than I would have predicted, I'll have to admit. I hope it gives you pleasure and good service.

Thanks, it most certainly did. I wore it for a trip to NY and used it to meet someone I know as well as go to some landmarks and restaurants. I received many compliments for it, and only two negative remarks.

I wish I had the stones to buy this one. (Of course, I wouldn't wear them together)

^Why would you need "stones" to buy that ascot? It's a nice classic, conservative style--nothing louche about it. If I didn't have so many ascots already, I'd probably want to buy it myself.

I would be too, but I didn't want to ask.
One of my female friends said it's ugly, looks snobby, and something only rich guys would wear, and that I couldn't pull it off. And another female friend said she only prefers neckties, and didn't like the look of an ascot.

Mayhap you should look around for new female friends. :)

No offense but I think they were being honest with you.

I count on the rest of you to be honest also, if I post a pic of myself wearing something that doesn't look good.

Lol and they were honestly negative opinions.
