    Not bad, try slowing your shutter speed down a couple notches and see if that brightens it up just a bit.

    Are you using a speed light? I used only continuous lighting but the colors were sometimes dull. Added a speed light and problem solved.

    Thanks all regarding the sunglasses critique.

    I think they're maybeee a hair too large but whatever.

    And I agree, they do look much bigger in the photo than IRL.

    For Chinese made neckwear, these do surprisingly well on the secondary market.

    The shades aren't a hair too big - your head might be a hair too small. Try some head bulking exercises, or, grow big bushy mutton sideburns.
