Last week Zuckerberg spawned criticisms for wearing a hoodie when meeting with potential IPO investors in New York. When you’re asking for billions of dollars it does seem a little outlandish to not even throw on a collared shirt. On the other hand, there aren’t that many 28-year-old billionaire CEOs out there, so Zuckerberg has always done things a bit differently.
After Michael Pachter, an analyst at Wedbush Securities, called Zuckerberg immature on Bloomberg TV, supporters of Facebook and hoodies alike fought back. Zuckerberg’s hoodie even has a twitter handle.
Luckily, bastions of casual cool have a sartorial solution for Wall Street strictness. Behold: Betabrand’s new Executive Pinstripe Hoodie, selling for $148, is “crafted from 100% superfine merino wool, the same exquisite fabric found in fancy-schmancy tailored suits,” according to its site. Now Zuckerberg can throw a bone to the Wall Street fashion police while still maintaining his own dignity (and comfort).
But if you feel a little cheap giving the billionaire CEO one measly sweatshirt, may we suggest some additions:
A Pair of Dandy Socks: the “secret handshake” of the Silicon Valley, these socks will add a little flair to Zuckerberg’s sneakers
A $100 pair of Underwear: Because everyone deserves a bit of pampering now and then.
With these new additions no one will be calling Zuckerberg unprofessional. Looks like our little Internet entrepreneur is all grown-up.
