Perhaps taking a hint from Steve Jobs who was well-known for wearing the same black turtleneck and Levi’s, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently admitted, despite being a 28-year-old billionaire, to wearing the same outfit on a daily basis.
The wardrobe: a gray T-shirt with three Facebook-style icons at his left shoulder, jeans, and occasionally a hoodie. In an interview with the Today show’s Matt Lauer, which airs Thursday, Zuckerberg said he owns about 20 of these T-shirts and is not sure how many hoodies.
These photos are just a few sightings of Zuckerberg in his iconic T-shirt.
Here’s what Today records Zuckerberg saying of his closet situation with his new bride, Priscilla Chan, whom he married in May, which could account for his limited style:
The Facebook CEO says that he doesn’t really have much in his closet — it’s mainly used by his wife, who graduated from medical school at the University of California at San Francisco shortly before their marriage. Instead, Zuckerberg’s identical t-shirt collection lives in the one drawer he’s allotted.
“Wait a second, are you telling me,” Lauer interupts. “At home you have one drawer?”
“I have one drawer,” Zuckerberg confirms. “Like men everywhere. Like men everywhere.”
Similarly, Apple’s CEO Tim Cook also maintains a consistent appearance in public wearing a long-sleeved button down shirt in dark colors.
So, are these tech giants creating a brand for themselves and showing stability with an unvaried wardrobe or are they just too busy to think about their outfits? Let us know what you think in the comments.
