In an effort to expand from the white/blue/white and blue/blue and white shirt realm, Ive just ordered a couple gingham shirts, one in pink--

Any suggestions as to tie selection with a pink gingham shirt, with either a Navy suit, or a gray one?

Pics especially appreciated!

Purple with white dots, not kidding, with a grey suit this is a stunning combo.

Use a neutral to avoid looking flamboyant.

Navy grenadine or black silk knit.

Much depends on the scale of the check.

i would echo the navy sentiment. in the right context brown sometimes goes well with pink.

What is a gingham shirt in pink? Can you post a picture?

If it is a solid pink then Midnight blue, maroon, or with a black suit a black tie.

+1, sounds great. Anything dark blue or purple would look great.

Personally? I wouldn't do the mint green thing, far too ghey..

I like the Navy tie idea. Dark purple would be very bold as well.

Mint green would be a bit too...much I think. What do you guys think about a Navy tie with green stripes, dots, or some other pattern thrown in?
