Technology billionaires have never been ones for ties. Whether Steve Jobs infamous turtleneck or the Mark Zuckerberg hoodie, it seems Silicon Valley lacks a dress code. That's why it's kind of funny to hear from potential Facebook investors who are taking umbrage at the chief executive of Facebooks choice in attire.
"I think that's a mark of immaturity," said Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter when asked about Zuckerberg's choice in clothing by Bloomberg.
"I think that he has to realise he's bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he's got to show them the respect that they deserve because he's asking them for their money."
Dress codes have never been a major part of Silicon Valley. Dating as far back as 1970, places like the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) were offering a no dress code environment. Technology has always been a sector of substance over style.
Whether it's the West Coast sun or the fact that technology executives tend to start out younger, it seems tech people care more about their work than their look. So while Wall Street types may continue to wear Armani suits, it looks like billionaire techies will continue to wear whatever they want.
As long as it isn't pyjamas. Zuckerberg did that once and it didn't take.
