    hello i have recently purchased a navy gingham shirt with a cutaway collar. i was wondering on a tie recommendation in terms of color or pattern to go with it. i would like to have a bolder look with the shirt. also i was wondering the rule on pocket squares,. should the color be completely different? the suit i would wear with it is a navy windowpane

    I was unclear. When the suit gets back from the tailors, take pictures of yourself in both the suit and the shirt. Make sure you have good lighting (preferably bright, outdoor lighting). As a reference, go look at how the photos in the WAYWRN (current or all stars) thread are done. As it stands, little, if anything can be said which might be useful other than a white square works for almost anything.
