“Steve Jobs has been in wardrobe meltdown for years and has finally arrived at the need for a wardrobe intervention. Are you listening Apple PR people? The head of your company has a clothes problem and somebody at Apple needs to get a hold of Jobs’ wife and get her to intervene,” Jim Lynch writes for ExtremeTech.
“So what’s wrong with Jobs’ clothes? Well the press has been focusing on Jobs’ health for a while now and Steve’s choice in wardrobe has played right into their hands. He insists on wearing what appears to be the same black turtleneck and jeans that he’s worn at previous shows. Unfortunately Jobs has lost weight so these clothes look really baggy on his leaner frame,” Lynch writes.
“Why is this important? Because it feeds the internet rumor mill that he’s sick again and that Apple might need a new CEO at some point in the near future. So Jobs is at a crossroads here, he basically has two choices: Eat more and fatten up so his current clothes fit him better [or] Buy smaller size clothes so they don’t appear as baggy on him.”
MacDailyNews Note: Due to his medical condition, it’s highly probable that Jobs can’t just “eat more and fatten up,” Jim. Sheesh.

Thanks for reading us, Jim. You can appropriate ideas any time, but please, in the future, at least give credit where credit is due lest we tag you as Microsoftian (and, Jim, we suspect that this isn’t the first time it’s happened, either):
“Steve: We know you hate wasting time on clothes; hence the uniform, but, seriously, dump the old ill-fitting jeans and black mock turtlenecks and get new jeans and black mock turtlenecks that fit your newfound svelteness. Problem solved.” – MacDailyNews Take, September 09, 2008, 3:45 PM EDT
“He’s skinnier, but he’s still wearing his old clothes and that makes him look emaciated. This all about visual appearance. We understand the ‘uniform’ concept, Steve. You don’t have to waste time on mundanities like thinking about what you’re going to wear, if you always wear the same thing (clean, of course; you have several sets, we assume), but go get some new, smaller jeans and black mock turtlenecks that fit, Steve. The world will suddenly think that you’re healthy as a horse – and those who would manipulate stock prices or fish for Website hits with nothing but photos and video clips will immediately find themselves without ammunition.” – MacDailyNews Take, September 09, 2008, 11:47 PM EDT
