Just as the title asks, what shirt/tie combo would work with this suit?

Thanks!

purple and white striped shirt w. white collar and cuff. Black and white polka dot tie. There are a lot of options but that is one of my favorite

Depends on how bold the stripe is, but hard to go wrong here other than trying to put it with Navy. Emmanuel's suggestion of purple would look great. Lighter blues would work ... so would something in pink too. Is the overall effect grey or is it truly black? Can't go wrong with a white shirt, but you'd want some colour in the tie unless you wanted a very somber look.

Really depends on the emphasis of the stripe... I'm assuming black suit, faded white stripes...

My vote is something plain/subdued (the suit speaks for itself) so maybe plain white, grey, or soft pink shirt, with plain tie (eg black self-patterned)
