a CEO needs to own at least one pair of

EG MTO - (e.g. a nice antique dark oak 82 last captoe for board meeting)

SANTONI FAM - (e.g. a double soled, norvogese-welted taupe monkstrap for an avant garde , very individualistic look when at the convention or meeting the museum curator)

VASS U LAST - (e.g. a sleek jet black 3-eyelet Londoner derby for a black-tie event at night)

that's all you need. then you fill up the other workhorse requirements with AE or something.

They generally do spend a lot of money on clothes and shoes. They just have bad taste, so they pick the wrong clothes, wrong colors, and wear them in the wrong combinations.

Our CEO is rich, his family was already wealthy, he wears very expensive looking, horrible looking clothing.

I actually think Donald Rumsfeld has that CEO aire to him.

He was busy, on the go, had a standing desk, wore tab collars, sometimes dark pinstriped suits, had glasses, made lots of hand gestures, made some CEO-ish quotations, etc.

He is leaning in for this photograph, not the best lines in his suit as compared to standing straight. Galen Weston. Always well put together, always very polite, soft spoken generally a nice person to deal with in my limited dealings with him and his wife. Owner, CEO etc in some way or another in: George Weston Ltd one of North America's largest bakers Holt Renfrew Loblaw's, Canada's largest supermarket Selfridges Brown Thomas

My CEO (Fortune 500) wears shorts and a polo and sandals. I whole heartedly love him for it.

Men gets dressed to impress others. Most CEO do not need to. Their title, perceived wealth status precede them. Average Joe needs a good looking suit, ideally with a "kiton" or a "Brioni" label to validate self worth and project an image.

My God, how did that Balmer moron ever get to the position he's in??? If I saw my CEO acting like a tool I'd be looking for the exit.

Ahh,

he's only the CEO of Microsoft. Some tiny-ass company not even worth mentioning, with no annual growth and not worth crap. Yes, what a fricken "tool"

If I were the CEO of a fortune 500, I'd dress as inconspicuously as possible.
