Ive bought this shirt from burton which was pretty cheap..

http://www.burton.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...6986&langId=-1

Its quite slim tight fit, i'll roll the sleeves up and wear it with a black pinstripe waistcoat, black trousers black loafers, But im not sure what tie to wear with it... I saw somone wearing this combo before and it looking amazing but i really dont know what type of tie to wear with it... Any ideas?

I have more trouble envisioning the pink and black together; I tend towards grays for pink. Black to me just demands white.

That said, I'd normally say gray ties, grays with pink/pink-related shades in them, pink and light blue light blue.

Browns can be fun with pink- but with a black suit?

I like light blues or browns and sometimes a nice purple.

If you want to wear it with an all black wardrobe (which will look great), a black tie will complete the outfit nicely.

No jacket, so why wearing a tie? As long you are young wear a necklet.

I've seen this and it's true, but please don't try it at home.

Stick with something safe like a gray tie until you're more comfortable mixing and matching colors.

Burgundy, green, or navy.

The black suit is right out.

Funny, I just picked up a purple shirt this weekend for an outfit I am wearing to a get together I'm going to this weekend:



Oh, and I am not wearing any pants in this picture, that's why the tie is peeking out from the bottom. I'm some savage for crying out loud!

Edit: oh I just noticed you said you got a pink shirt, not purple.
