I have a tie similar to that from BB. For me, it is a summer only tie. I'd wear it with Navy (either suit or blazer), and I second the cotton khaki suit or the seersucker.

This was the first thing that came to my mind. It would look even better with a stone color.

According to the "experts," the tie should pick up the color of your shirt or suit.

Obviously you can't wear a green or purple shirt, so I suggest a green or purple suit.

Looking at the tie again, is it Green and Navy or Green and Purple? If green and purple, then I'd eliminate navy, and lean towards a gray (perhaps a lighter gray). If green and navy, then I stick with my original.
