 I read somewhere that he wears Cole Haan or Allen Edmonds and has just two pairs which he alternates (and gets re-soled). Ah, here it is http://www.mnn.com/lifestyle/arts-culture/blogs/nyc-mayor-bloombergs-sustainable-footwear
 I don't think business dress during the peak of Hurricane Sandy would have been appropriate. Back to business dress -- Bloomberg was the key speaker at an event I organized earlier this year (and also did all graphics and signage for) and he looked good to me in person.

 Yes. To the OP:  5'9" is not short. It's the low side of average.  Don't focus on your height. Yeah, I know it's easy for me to say that seeing as I'm a towering 5'10.5".  But you're not short.  You're not tall, but you're not short either.
