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.

switching careers

Hello all, I am thinking about switching careers and going into computer networking specifically with Cisco and the CCNET certification. Is anyone here in that field and what advice do you have to help me land my first position. I have already called a technical recruiter and she said there are jobs available with no experience, but I am a bit weary.See More
