What color tie should you wear with a blue suit?

There are a couple of answers to the question above. The first is that you can pretty much wear any color tie with a blue suit. A blue suit is one of the most versatile and “neutral” garments in a man’s closet. And therefore, your choice of tie color can make your suit look and feel pretty much any way you want.

(N.B. For argument’s sake, let’s assume by ‘blue’, we’re talking about navy blue or a moderate royal blue color.)

And the second answer is pretty much just as unsatisfying as the first: it depends.

Because, of course, the tie you choose should complement the situation and occasion. You wouldn’t wear a loud paisley tie to a funeral, for example.

Here’s some blue suit/tie inspiration that will have you covered no matter where you’re going, what you’re doing, or how you’re feeling.

    Brian, I’ve been following your blog for over 5 years now and you’re still hands down my favourite men’s fashion site. In the process I’ve learned so much about my own wardrobe wishes and how to implement them, even creating my own site for my own style interests. Cheers for that! You’re a classy man and I’m really happy for your success.

      Many thanks, my man! Appreciate the continued support.

    Brian, I’m new to your page and really enjoy the various looks and options you offer. I’m interested in finding out about thrifting. I am very serious about my wardrobe and have found many incredible finds in various venues. I’m looking now to parlay that into a small business venture. I’m probably a little older than your followers (61 years young), but always very “fashion conscious”. Thanks for the great ideas! R
