    Nice pictures! The location is great!
    I actually like the look: clean, simple business look with a colourful detail. The orange tie seems to be a sort of symbol or sign for his company? I like it, looks great!

  2. …Just like Karl said: I think it is the easiest business-look there is, a business suit with a colorful detail… You can wear any color tie you want with such a combination…

    @ Karl, you’re totally right; the OrangeTie is indeed the symbol of MarketingYou. Beeing a real branding enthusiast I was trying to find something that really communicated well, not only on paper and on the screen but also in real life.

    @… The color orange has also been said to communicate certain characteristics. Like red is said to be a very aggressive color, orange is also a power color that is all about creativity, innovation, enthusiasm and sociability. All characteristics that I feel are close to me.

    I like to know if somebody has ideas on how to implement color psychology on wearing a tie. Like it is said that red is to be worn if you want to make a more aggresive appearance. Look forward hearing from you.

    And by the way, I don’t wear orange ties all the time. I do like to change around but most of the time my ties will be of one or two solid colors. I don’t have many ties with prints, I have a hard time finding real nice ones that don’t look to classical.

    I think this “easy” outfit is the best business look. Easy or simple does not mean you don’t care for your look. I think it means the opposite. This look is business! ;-)

    I’m ok with Karl, this look “made the job” no more no less, but if all the businessmen were so well dressed as him, it would be a big step for humanity !

    …I visited his website and I like his logo very much : the “M” with the orange tie is wonderful and the Panda poken is very cute. Good luck to him & his business.

  6. I totally agree with you guys… This business look is perhaps the most respected look in the world of formal menswear. Nevertheless, a lot of people have trouble wearing a suit by even the basics of etiquette.. Everytime I see somebody that is not weldressed, it ‘costs’ me a glass of whiskey… there still is a lot of work to do :D

    I just got back from lunch, right now I’m enjoying the last sunrays of the season…

  7. Roeljan, Thanks for the comment, my apologies for the late reaction… I think/feel that the color blue is albout negotiations en openness…?

    @Roeljan:
    Great job! Not only you match your tie to your suit/shirt but also to your personality! :-)

    I’m not sure, I think blue stands for youth and hope? And it is often said, blue is “calming down” the viewer.
    Green stands for nature, sustainability.

    @Bobby:
    The outfit is definitely one of the most respected outfits in business world. I thought about that, but did not quite know how to express that! :-)

    When you visit some offices, you’ll have to drink the whole bottle of whiskey! Done in one! ;-)
