The Oliver suits look like they fit best, including acceptable fit at the shoulders, which is one of the hardest things to fix. Shoulders should not have big dents.
Hmm, financial industry, perhaps there's money to afford pants of wool blended with more than a trace amount of cashmere? That said, don't regularly dress fancier than superiors.
It's okay to go slightly bolder in color (e.g., Donald Trump pink) or slightly thicker in fabric (such as a 6-fold tie or cashmere tie in cold weather). Beyond that is likely to cause a negative reaction in more than a few people.
