To look slightly less large, wear a pocket square, preferably in cream or something else tasteful but not too formal .
The fit is so bad that a search for another tailor should commence.
Beyond Allen Edmonds means trying on something first, to be safe, which in turn is best done at the store.. What's the approximate location?
Basically a taupe suit and blonde hair are not seen as authoritative. Therefore, for business, an authoritative tie would help. Of course, with a masculine face and build, apparel color importance diminishes.
It took a while, then some great replies. It's not an argument against non-riders wearing motorcyle jackets per se. Okay, probably no serious, technical jacket for someone like that, but the real issue is not being fake. As in wearing a motorcycle jacket without having any stereotypically manly hobbies or hanging out in somewhat of a biker bar while wearing a jacket that's never used on a motorcycle.
