    I just got a ralph lauren pinstripe suit (black)

    im pretty sure thats the one i got...


    anyways, besides the obvious blue or white like that guy, what are some other options as far as shirt and tie to wear with it?

    Want something modern and classy but original too, not something typical...anyways, what do you thing? Should I just keep it simple and stay blue or white or are there any other options?

    Also should I wear a shirt that has cufflinks or no?

    most every color shirt goes with black!
    white, grey, pink, stripes, etc

    it's all about the tie
    the tie is the trick to bringing it all together

    im afraid if I wear a striped dress shirt under it then its gonna clash with the pinstripe and look awkward

    depends how fine the pinstripes are on the suit vs. how bold they are on the shirt
    but if you do that, then pair with a solid tie. General rule of thumb is 2 patters out of 3

    if you dont feel confident enough, just go with a solid shirt and a nice tie
    i prefer striped. different colors, bold and brings the whole color scheme together

    Pretty standard suit from the looks. Could get away with some pretty cool stuff.

    Maybe [​IMG]

    as an example could work. But it depends on the context you need it for
