Depends on what he uses the suit for and his current shirts.

If you want something then the safe but always good options, in white or light blue, you could consider: pink/light lilac/green/ercu paired with a dark colour tie or red/blue/purple/etc in gingham/bengal stripe.

You know you won't get much love for a black suit on SF unless it's for a wedding or funeral.

I think they are best for a night out somewhere but not for business. Last time I had mine on it was with a dark lavender shirt and purple tie.

I'd go with a black shirt and a black tie as well. It's the style today.
