    What shade of green?

    Navy would be my first pick. I often wear a green gingham shirt with a navy tie. It looks particularly awesome with a navy suit.

    Yeah, navy should work an absolute treat.

    Navy's a good failsafe; it's all I've really found to work with pink shirts too.
    A significantly darker green might also potentially work, but this would depend on the surrounding pieces I think.

    Green shirt? Colour theory dictates a red tie. I understand if you don't want to give yule time greetings, though. However, wait, I still have an idea, perhaps you could pull a Brazilian flag? Green does go with yellow and blue, here is why:

    Green compliments Green

    Green = Green

    Blue + Yellow = Green

    Blue + Yellow compliments Green.

    Perhaps you could wear a dark navy suit with yellow tie with some paisley detailing? Hope this helps a little :-)
