This man has a lot going for him. He is handsome as well as slim and toned, so he looks great in his dark navy blue suit and slim-fit shirt in French Blue. However, there are a few things that need tweaking.
First of all, the belt buckle is too large and sporty looking. A classic belt that is worn with a business suit (see photo above) should be more discrete than the one our executive wears, and it catches the eye because it’s so shiny and large. On the positive side, his tie falls at just the right distance. However, he’s committed a classic faux pas with his tie.
Our executive’s tie would be more effective if it had a pattern, because a gentleman never wears a solid color tie when his suit and shirt are also in solids. It comes across as unimaginative and smacks of a uniform of some kind rather than the look of an executive. Of course, he could wear a blue and white striped shirt and solve the “blandness” problem.
The best solution, however, is a tie in a contrasting color; yellow with blue stripes or small repeating patterns. Another good choice would be a tie in the red family, including, magenta, burgundy, plum or raspberry (see raspberry tie in photo above).
Lastly, in terms of body language, this “gunslinger” pose can be construed as confrontational; but it can also have an element of suggestiveness. It depends upon whether you are a man or a woman who is encountering this man.
