In my novel I am writing a scene where I am trying to describe a character. In the scene, he is a white male, 35 years old, with rich parents. He is an alpha male and I am trying to make him dress like the type. So I used the style a rugged cowboy would dress. But it doesn't sound right when I read it out loud, especially when I use the word, "had". Because doesn't had mean it was the past? Should I remove the word 'Had'? For example change, "He had an n over-muscled build..." to "With an n over-muscled build..._
Thanks in advance.
Brock stood a little under six feet tall and Yousif was sure he weighed at least over two hundred pounds. He had an over-muscled build that many would find intimidating. He wore a popped at the collar, dirty blue plaid shirt, tucked in a pair of black slim fitting jeans. A tooled leather belt with an oversized statement buckle held his tucked in shirt in place. He also wore a pair of beaten up, round pointed toe brown thick heeled crocodile cowboy boots. In short, he had an all-American, rugged a little bit dangerous cowboy look.
