Generally I don't think I look very good in pastels...maybe its just me.

I think "richer" colors work better - royal blue, burgundy, plum, black, etc. Unfortunately these colors generally seem too casual for normal business wear (particularly in Japan), not to mention are much less "classic."

As for wardrobe breakdown, I have an astonishing number of blue shirts..

I believe sesame oil also originates in the Middle East.
