He’s been confirmed by GQ as the worst dressed man in Silicon Valley. We should all avoid dressing like him, right? But one website makes it oh-so-tempting.
We’re counting our blessings that the 27-year-old Zuck hasn’t launched a fashion line (yet), but leave it to some clever Internet-dwellers to fill that niche. Mark by Mark Zuckerberg is a faux fashion line riffing off Zuck’s favorite garments. While the site is nothing new, seeming to have been launched in December 2010, Mark by Mark Zuckerberg is finding a revival given the Facebook founder’s confirmed fashion-failure status.
The funnymen at On & True have compiled the sartorial standards that Zuckerberg has been known to frequent. When you’re worth $13.5 billion, you can wear whatever you want, right? And the Facebook founder seems unwilling to part with his college days, forever adopting a dorm-room friendly style of dress. Behold some of the site’s options:
The site showcases Zuckerberg’s faltering fashion choices, from his signature navy bathrobe (presumably to go along with those flannel pajama pants), to his beloved Adidas slip-on sandals. Plain white socks and elastic jeans – which we didn’t know still existed for people over the age of 12 – help complete the style which could be best described as “apathetic.”
And because sometimes the brand is the fashion, the site notes, they’re offering bland, baggy t-shirts and college-style hoodies with the swanky logo splashed across the chest. All items are most certainly for sale, but they won’t require a visit to a fancy boutique. Many of the items are available through the depressingly bland Amazon.com.
If anything, Zuckerberg’s fashion failings prove a well-padded bank account can’t buy fashion sense. But his loss is our gain: indeed, a modest bank account can buy the same sartorial sense as a billionaire.
