Mark Zuckerberg created the most popular social site around; but he didn’t necessarily look good doing it.
After years of sporting jeans and a grey t-shirt Zuckerberg is explaining his refusal to switch up his wardrobe choices. In a Facebook question and answer session he says he wears the t-shirt every day because he thinks “what to wear” is a silly decision. He says he wants to clear his life so that he has to make as few decisions as possible except how to best serve the Facebook community. He also considers deciding what to eat for breakfast each morning a silly decision but hasn’t found a way to simplify that.
And even though it looks like he’s wearing the same shirt every day, Zuckerberg says that’s not the case. He says he has multiple versions of the same shirt and with an estimated worth of $33 billion he can afford them.
But Zuckerberg isn’t the only tech genius to dress down. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was known for his black turtleneck and jeans. And imitation is the highest form of flattery.
