Infamously dubbed the worst-dressed man in Silicon Valley, 27-year-old multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg favours cheap hoodies over top plain tee shirts and jeans with sneakers. Many say his choice of attire represents a lot more than mere fashion.
Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter says that Mark’s signature hoodie is “a mark of immaturity.” Michael describes the Facebook founder as a “genius” but questions whether the stubborn CEO will be able to run a public corporation and answer to shareholders.
Mark’s overly casual and deliberately consistent clothing likens him to Steve Jobs, who seldom wore anything other than jeans and a black turtleneck sweater. Mark has called the late Steve an entrepreneur that he considers a hero to aspire to.
Zuck has, on rare occasion, worn more formalwear—most notably in meetings with the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama. Facebook has declined to comment on the state of Mark and his hoodie.
