Mark Zuckerberg named worst-dressed man in Silicon Valley (again), with Steve Jobs close behind

by Knowlton Thomas | Culture

Mark Zuckerberg is famous—or should I say infamous—for his casual hoodie and t-shirt attire.

So famous, or infamous, in fact, that he has earned his second "Worst-dressed" honour (or dishonour). After appearing on Esquire's worst-dressed list back in January GQ has now dubbed him the Worst-Dressed Man in Silicon Valley. Ouch! 

The rather catty Mean Girls-esque GQ article goes out on a limb to insult Mark, saying he's "oblivious to the fact that jeans and ties come in skinny sizes—or that suits exist," and going on to describe Zuck's style as "poor," noting his sense of fashion inspired a mock line called Mark By Mark Zuckerberg.

Then again, Zuck probably doesn't care, since Facebook is a lot more popular than GQ and he's certainly richer than anyone working there. My guess is the writer of the article is a little jealous of these "worst-dressed men," who have managed to accomplish something despite—gasp!—not wearing stylish clothing. But maybe I'm off there and fashion is what makes the world go around. 

Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, is the second worst-dressed in the Valley, according to GQ. Way to pick on a man with a history of battling cancer and bad health.
