    I'm about to place an order at Jantzen, and right now one of my main aims is to get something to coordinate well with a navy suit with red pinstripes. The suit looks a lot like the one listed at I love the suit, but right now, I have a hard time matching it beyond solid white/blue and a blue w/white striped shirt I have.

    I'm looking for something with a pattern, preferably some sort of check. I was also considering the possibility of white contrast cuffs/color if the base background is not white. Anyone want to recommend some fabrics or combinations?

    Depending on the boldness of the red pinstripe, consider pinks, purples/lilacs or go the opposite direction with cream and white.

    For a recent night out, I wore a navy suit with a thicker, beaded but darker/muted red stripe with fairly dark purple shirt. Worked well I thought. I also use this suit for business, but use lighter shirt colours such as pale pinks or cream in this context.
