I am a British inventor and I have been told (by my marketing team) that I need to look more like the classic English Eccentric. I have recently given up smoking, and switched to electronic cigarettes. I have just ordered a pipe style device. This is partly because I think it matches my hat which is a leather Australian walkabout hat. The next area to look at is...... everything else.... I am toying with the idea of a tweed jacket, shirt, bow tie (possibly garish, possibly masonic) cufflinks (templar or masonic) waistcoast, and jeans....... What shoes would go with this kind of look? do I need a coat? to be honest, I have never bothered with styling myself (partly because my ex-wives, before they became ex... had told me that they would leave if I did style myself.... haha, that would only have speeded up the inevitable). Since I stopped wearing uniform (am ex-navy) I have just gone with trainers, jeans and t-shirt.... but I think that my marketing guys are right, I need to look more like the character the customers are expecting to see. And to be honest, I am quite looking forward to the make-over.... I am just unsure as to how to achieve this.... I guess the other part of the question is; do I create a look which is typical of a mad inventor (British Style) or go completely off the wall? any help would be much appreciated. The other thing to consider I guess is that I am also a bit of a teccy nerd type.... so I carry an IPAD and Iphone.... so what kind of case would I use to carry the IPAD in... it must match the image, but at the same time say Teccy!By the way, I am 5'8" in height, and I think the word is rotundHelp please.
