Facebook CEO might be the world’s youngest billionaire, the world’s most generous philanthropist, and the owner of a site where 1/6th of humanity logs on daily, but he isn’t exactly known for his sartorial sense. Zuckerberg famously is almost always seen wearing the same plain gray T shirt and faded jeans. So when he shared a pic of his wardrobe while getting ready for his first day back to work after paternity leave, it looked exactly like what you’d expect – a long endless sea of gray.
Zuckerberg himself is very aware of his reputation as a repetitive dresser. In an interview, he claimed that he wore the same outfit each day as it spared him the time of making decisions on what to wear, allowing him to focus on bigger things, such as connecting the world and bringing access to people in developing countries. This philosophy does have its adherents in Silicon Valley – Apple CEO Steve Jobs was always seen in a black turtleneck in this public appearances. The suit and tie may well be on their way out with the top honchos of the tech world redefining casual dressing.
