    I think one thing that can make a big difference is a light colored suit. Some combos don't look bad persay with a dark suit, but a medium to light gray, that light blue linen suit posted earlier, perhaps a beige suit if it suits your skintone, they can look outstanding.

    As for aj's ties, how about a tan shirt and a ligther gray suit? Nice pair of medium brown shoes, perhpas suede, that could be a fantastic look.

    Yellow ties are classic and have a place in every mans wardrobe.

    I even wore light pink...some years ago.

    Light coloured ties are great in summer.

    This is exactly the sort of thing that I don't understand. In my opinion, there is little contrast between the shirt and the tie (especially relative to the dark jacket). It just grates against me. With a lighter toned jacket, I completely understand yellow with lavender or green with magenta. With a dark jacket, when you have light grey or cream on near-white i feel like it's too similar to white-on-white.
