    I need some advice. Is wearing a plaid jacket on a striped shirt something you do or avoid? How often does this combination work?

    Simple stripe (nothing too colorful or flash) and solid tie work quite often. Add a patterned tie and it gets much trickier.

    The more complicated you make it, the more likely it is too fail.

    Honestly, there's too much going on in there. Any patterned shirt or tie would work with a solid combination.
