    Pink oxford

    Hi.

    I'm thinking about buying a pink ocbd from uniqlo to wear with indigo jeans, tan toe cap shoes and possibly a grey wool blazer. Do people think this will work? If so, what colour pocket square, tie would you go with? The outfit is for a day/night out with the wife and friends for good food and drinks.

    Cheers

    It will definitely work. If you are going to dress it up then maybe a navy or charcoal knitted (or other texture) tie and a woolen burgundy/navy mix pocket square.

    Thanks for the advice. I've got a forest green knitted tie which I thought might be a good contrast. Also thought about buying a grey jersey blazer to wear so it's a bit more relaxed?

    I think would look excellent. For pocket square I would go for a contrast colour rather than anything matching, so perhaps navy, mid blue, or green could be an interesting contrast against the pink. I'd look at a patterned one too, perhaps a paisley. Post a pic of the outfit up in the 'today I am wearing' thread, it will look interesting!

    Thanks creed. I've got a plain navy pocket square I might try. Do you think the green tie and navy pocket square would be too much?

    I'll see how the confidence is and possibly load the pic on sat.

    Yes actually with green tie too, it would be too clashy - maybe pink shirt, green tie, grey blazer with a burgundy pocket square, that way the pocket square complements the shirt.
