Good Evening Gentlemen,

I have a grey suit which I wear with a cloudy-pinkish shirt or a greyish-roseish shirt and I was wondering what colour or pattern of necktie would go with it.  I was thinking grey, but I also want some other colour and pattern options.

 

Have a Good Day,

Stay Safe,

 

Tyler.

As far as neckties go, it's really a case of trial and error. It also depends on if the shirt itself has a pattern, if it does try and put the pattern into a "Pattern Type". For example, if the shirt has a "bold" pattern you'll want to use a tie that has either a "light pattern" or no pattern at all, however, if the shirt has a "light pattern" you'll most likely want to use a tie with a "bold" pattern. The grey of the suit also affects the choice of necktie; if it's a light grey then you'll want a light colored tie and vice versa.

It ultimately depends on your own personal tastes, if you think it looks good then give it a try, not everyone is going to like it, but diversity in a main factor in suits and looking good in general. However, if you want my un-professional opinion I'd suggest changing the shirt to a plain black shirt and then add a dark blue necktie with small white dots or a purple tie with a faint flowery pattern (I personally use a white shirt most often simply because it makes choosing a tie with a suit far easier.

Hope this information helps.

Consider a lilac shirt with the grey, will give you a few more tie options (purple based florals, small paisley's etc)

As for the pink shirt, I own a grey & fuscia striped tie that looks smart with a grey suit, adds a splash of bold colour that stands out against a colour (grey) that can really wash out other colours.

 

A white shirt with a nice dark maroon based tie will also look smart with a grey suit

 

All IMHO of course!

Thank you very much for your opinion gentlemen.

 

Steve, one of the shirts I wear with the grey suit is a greyish-lilac shirt that I got from my late grandfather, and being that it is my go-to shirt, I will take the suggestion of a small paisley, as well as a grey/fuscia striped tie.

If you're really unsure, wear or bring the shirt to a menswear store or the men's department in an upscale department store and ask for help.
