Psst----the "fashion industry" is made up. We don't actually need it.

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.

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

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.

Simplify, simplify.

I have things I'd rather do in the mornings than spend time picking out clothing.

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.

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.

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.

xenophon10k: Zuck's mentor, at one point, was Steve Jobs...

Too bad he never learned how to create an actual working business plan from him.
