It's not as difficult as a lot of people claim, IMO. Anyway, as to whether it's worth it, well, I went through the exams (and paid the greenmail to AIMR, err, CFAI) to break into the buy side. It didn't work. So then I entered a top MBA program, which is what it eventually took for me to get my foot in the door.

Is your walk exercise focused? Sort of. I'll walk through the park, doing dips and chinups at the series of kids' playgrounds, on my way to work on a weekend afternoon, for example. The fact that you wear a navy top shouldn't prevent you from wearing jeans though. I'm a bit confused by that. Too much blue.

To be fair, I couldn't tell a "good" shirt from a "great" shirt but as far as I can tell, CEGO is quite good. The shirts fit me perfectly and they have thus far survived quite a few launderings.
