Purple for both. Subtle is best.

I like:
Olive suit: blue shirt/yellow tie
Bwn suit: white shirt/blue tie (a lighter blue is better)

Certain shades of green have worked for me. I usually wear a white shirt with a dark green patterned tie and it works.

Lavender, lilac, mauve, all the lighter shades of pink/purple work well.

With olive get a navy tie with purple and pink stripes or highlights. Wear it with a blue or pink shirt.
