    Assuming that the cut of this suit is OK, what do you think of this fabric? Is the stripe too bold? Would it be versatile? What color shirt/tie would go best with a stripe like this?

    Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Not too bold, and versatile if you often wear blue in your shirts and ties.

    Nice fabric. I agree with the blue shirt suggestion, although pink would also go well.

    Not too bold at all. In fact, I have two suits in a similar fabric, a 2-button peak-lapel that's an Anderson & Sheppard bespoke with about the same stripe spacing and a 3-roll-2 Zegna Su Misura that's spaced about double that. I wear both of them all the time.
