Zuck's mentor, at one point, was Steve Jobs...

What's silly about it? So do I. I don't have to think about my wardrobe every morning. I'm not in sales, and no one cares at work.

Too bad he never learned how to create an actual working business plan from him.
 
2012-10-03 08:33:20 AM  
Albert Einstein did, too. He had a wardrobe full of the same outfit so that he didn't have to waste any time during the day fretting about what to wear. And then there's Bill Belichick.

Priorities. The dress code was covered in orientation, but Steve died before he could teach him anything else.

"I have one drawer," Zuckerberg confirms. "Like men everywhere. Like men everywhere."

No Mark. That's *before* the ring goes on the finger.
 
2012-10-03 08:48:56 AM  
That's probably one of the perks about being at his station in life.
 
2012-10-03 09:29:56 AM  
Plus it sounds like he married an asian chick who regularly uses Facebook, so he can't be all right in the head.

/Aside from the amazing crazy hot asian sex he's probably having.

When one has billions of dollars and is the chairman of the board, one doesn't need a persona, Mr. Zuckerberg. Time to grow up now.
 
2012-10-03 09:35:18 AM  
Shiat, he's worth over a billion dollars so why should he care what others think of his clothing choices. On the other hand if I had that kind of money I'd rather be flashy like Larry Ellison. The dude has style and he lives all out, even if he's a jerk.
 
2012-10-03 09:35:53 AM  
So what, when I was in the Military, I did as well.
Didn't have to worry about what to wear to work!!

gopher321: What's silly about it? So do I. I don't have to think about my wardrobe every morning. I'm not in sales, and no one cares at work.


Believe it or not, I do something very similar 90% of the time. I shop like a guy. Gap's v-neck t shirts- I must have 30 of them, in about four colors. Combined with one of several pairs of jeans and one of several pairs of chuck taylors, and I'm good to go.
 
2012-10-03 09:40:22 AM  
I own 12 black t-shirts (from two manufacturers, because the first quit making them in a 100% cotton 'tall'), 5 pairs of dark blue jeans, and a few pairs of black bit loafers.

I have some other odds and ends for certain seasons and occasions, obviously, but yeah, 80% of the time, that's what I'm wearing. It works.

Trust me, Subby is not far off from the truth. He may be just a little odd right now, but his particular problems are going to grow as he gets older and they will eventually become very problematic for him.

He always wore the same suit!
 
2012-10-03 09:44:13 AM  
Yeah, but could it be something that doesn't make him look like a dork?

I'd have a closet full of much nicer clothes if I could afford it, and a whole selection of bespoke suits (even if they were all the same).
 
2012-10-03 09:44:52 AM  
There are more people who use Facebook on Android - because Android is just - more people use it, at this point.

Yes, Mark it could mean that - Android is just - but it could also mean that Facebook doesn't appeal to the majority of the iPhone demographic.

I use an iPhone. Facebook doesn't hold any appeal for me. Anecdotal evidence is anecdotal.
 
2012-10-03 09:45:00 AM  
Tom Griswold believes this is perfectly normal.
 
2012-10-03 09:46:35 AM  
Me too. I have one pair of jeans, two pairs of shorts and about 10 T-shirts, plus one button up just in case and a pair of overalls for chores. One drawer is more than enough for me. 47 years old and have never worn a tie, dress slacks or a jacket ever.
 
2012-10-03 09:47:21 AM  
Figure out what you are going to wear for the week on Sunday. Hang in that order. It's not tough.

Sterling Archer: Yeah, I know it's sexy Woodhouse, that's why I bought ten. Now arrange those by color.
Woodhouse: These are all black.
Sterling Archer: Oh are they? Or are five in a dark black, and five in a slightly darker black?

That goes for almost all design. But we have have design for a reason.
 
2012-10-03 09:59:24 AM  
That isn't as unusual as one might think. There's a bunch in the IT business who wear same color scheme (whatever color that person likes). Some have one for shirts another for pants and similar. Not all that odd in my book. But then I figure in the realm of quarks lack of color choice is a pretty minor and harmless one.
 
2012-10-03 10:02:16 AM  
I dress to suit my own comfort. If you suddenly made me a billionaire, that wouldn't change. Look how George Lucas dresses.

Simplify, simplify.

I have things I'd rather do in the mornings than spend time picking out clothing.
 
2012-10-03 10:04:37 AM  
Apparently, President Obama does something similar. Obviously, as president he can't wear exactly the same thing every day, but he has minimized his wardrobe choices.

And it turns out there's good science behind this. Believe it or not, we each have a finite capacity for decision-making (it recharges over time), and every little decision you make subtracts from your effectiveness in making big decisions later. The same is true of other behaviors such as resisting temptation or exercising patience. When somebody says "my patience is exhausted", it's more than just an expression.
 
2012-10-03 10:11:25 AM  
Must be getting stinky by now. And I'm surprised it still fits him.

If you're a billionaire and set for life, I see no need to worry about impressing people, fark fashion, there's tons of better stuff to blow you're money on

At their level, they can have someone else dress them. For average guys, do all your thinking on one day and lay it out for the week, month if you have the cash. It take me about 15 minutes to figure out what I'm going to wear for week. I even hang workout clothes so I don't have to bother finding shorts or a shirt in the morning.

Nabb1: Albert Einstein did, too. He had a wardrobe full of the same outfit so that he didn't have to waste any time during the day fretting about what to wear.


He also sometimes got so immersed in thinking, he left the house with no pants on.

Can you imagine him showing up for his first date like that? "Man, this guy must be a genius."
 
2012-10-03 10:21:19 AM  
Glad to hear that Mark got the new iphone for free. I'd hate to think of him having to shell out the cash for that.
 
2012-10-03 10:24:58 AM  
Yeah, I pretty much do this. One pair of khakis and a couple of pairs of jeans. T shirts, socks, underwear, button-down shirts. They all work together. I pull from the left side of the closet and if something makes it all the way to the right it usually gets chucked.

/Bike stuff on the other hand...

Do you know how much of my life I'm willing to spend thinking about clothes? None. None of my life, except the 5 minutes it takes me to buy 10 new,plain tees every two years or so.
 
2012-10-03 10:25:19 AM  
plain black t-shirt, blue jeans, black adidas hat & sneakers, every day. I once forgot my hat and had several people I knew not recognize me immediately.

I've got other clothing as necessary for specific activities but the last thing I want to do every morning is stand in front of my closet and mirror for half an hour.

A guy doesn't need a huge wardrobe, even if he works a professional job. A few staples that don't match, but "go together" is all a guy needs. As long as he's clean, and it looks like he's changing his clothes daily, it'll be OK. Wearing very loud clothes generally works against a man.

BTW, I once saw Matt Lauer at Newark Airport. When he's not reading from a teleprompter, he sounds like a retard.

ilopan: Aspergers. Wearing the same thing everyday is huge sign of it.


Or a belief that wearing different kinds of clothes, making that choice, puts an unnecessary importance on the ego. From a Buddhist perspective (IIRC) attaching importance to temporary things like objects, including clothes, is to be more attached to the non-spiritual. I'm guessing that's why Jobs had the same clothes: it fit with a spiritual drive to eschew attachment to objects as a measure of who you "are." Yes, you can enjoy fine food and objects, but they are not who you are. (Lose them, and then you're still you, right?)

I think we'd be happier as a society if we learned to live like that. TV and advertising tell us we're not happy unless we own something, but even then we're not happy. We have to own something else.

/no we don't

dmax: Or a belief that wearing different kinds of clothes, making that choice, puts an unnecessary importance on the ego.


Or, making a statement by wearing the same thing everyday, puts unnecessary importance on the ego. As a self-righteous act "I'm better than everyone else in this society because I don't put importance on my dress." It all depends on the norms of culture of where you live.

Note he doesn't mention anything about washing those identical T-shirts between wearings.

God, can you imagine the stink of vinegar and Axe body spray that must be coming off him by now. And that's not even mentioning the hoodie...
