I admit to being style- challenged (Thats why I read this forum)
So I'd like to request some help from the more astute members here. Any suggestions for tie colors for this would be greatly appreciated.

It completely depends on your shirt color. That color suit (charcoal) is very easy to match with, luckily.

A sample combination would be light blue shirt, maroon tie.

It's neutral, so depending on which shirt you wear it with you can choose practically any tie.

You can wear anything with that suit, so long as you avoid having patterns that fight against each other. Just avoid shirts and ties with stripes that are about as far apart as the stripes on the suit. I would prefer either a light blue shirt with a burgundy or blue patterned tie or a pink check or bold stripe with a solid tie. Just my prefs for my own SB suit with a similar stripe.

I agree with Charles and beau.

I have some very nice ties for sale here that would go nicely with that suit.

pink shirt and maroon tie. light blue shirt and navy tie. or pink shirt with navy tie. i dont think maroon would look good with a light blue shirt.

actually, i think dark green would look very nice with charcoal. i have a dark green tie with polka dots and i'm looking forward to wearing it with my grey suit.

don't be afraid of patterns on the ties. my favorite pattern for ties is probably polka dots and paisley.
