Texture is almost as important as color when putting together an outfit. Here, a conservative navy blue JAB herringbone suit really pops with a bright orange PF necktie. But the difference in texture adds an extra dimension. The tie has a satin sheen to it and reflects light, while the suit has a no finish and absorbs light.
You might also pair a cotton suit with a linen tie or a smooth gabardine suit with a grenadine tie. Or a smooth white dress shirt with raw denim. Or shiny burgundy shoes with raw denim. Or a wool necktie with a linen shirt. I could go on. My point is, once you start playing with texture and color, you can have a lot more fun.
