What suit/shirt/tie color combination are recommended for an executive job interview?

I have an interview tomorrow with a large corporation for an executive position. I want to look my best, very professional, yet standout from the crowd. What is your recommendation for type of suit (single breasted/double breasted) pinstripe or plain, shirt (white, blue, etc), and tie (red, blue, striped, etc). Lastly, are those hankercheifs in the suit pocket still in fashion, or is that passe?
