GQ’s 15 Worst-Dressed Men Of Silicon Valley: Steve Jobs #2

“Nerds run the world,” Clover Hope writes for GQ. “But with their notoriously horrid fashion choices, some dotcom entrepreneurs could use a style IQ boost. While their tech innovations deserve kudos, their outfits are one giant leap back for mankind. Here, we present the 15 worst offenders.”

15 Worst-Dressed Men Of Silicon Valley:
15. Chris Sacca, Founder and Principal of Lowercase Capital
14. Craig Newmark, Founder of Craigslist
13. Ron Conway, Early Investor in Google, PayPal, Facebook, Digg
12. Peter Chou, Co-Founder and CEO of HTC
11. Blake Krikorian, Co-Founder and Former CEO of Sling Media
10. Ben Huh, CEO of
9. Howard Stringer, Chairman, President and CEO of Sony Corp.
8. Seth Priebatsch, Founder and CEO of Smartphone app SCVNGR
7. Tom Anderson, Co-Founder of MySpace

5. Dennis Crowley, Co-Founder and CEO of Foursquare; Co-Founder Of Dodgeball
4. Shantanu Narayen, President and CEO of Adobe Systems, Inc.

3. Bill Gates, Co-Founder and CEO of Microsoft: “Curious how Harry Potter will age post-Hogwarts?”

2. Steve Jobs, Co-Founder and CEO of Apple: “Apple releases an iPhone every 0.5 seconds. Steve Jobs never gets an upgrade. The Svengali’s self-inflicted uniform (black turtleneck, dad jeans, Seinfeld kicks) rival Superman’s in its homogeneity—a style blunder no AutoCorrect can fix.”

1. Mark Zuckerberg, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Facebook: “Oblivious to the fact that jeans and ties come in skinny sizes—or that suits exist—the father of Facebook (and we do mean father) loves to recycle the fresh-from-Stats-class look. Zuck’s style is so poor, it even inspired a mock fashion line, Mark By Mark Zuckerberg, which thankfully doesn’t sell any actual clothing.”

    1. … admire the clothing choices of the men on their list, I strongly suspect that the men on their list do not admire the shallow clothes-horses that are considered “best-dressed”. There are those who “dress for success” and those who “have succeeded” – and don’t need to PRETEND to be successful.
      Apple *could* buy it, but what would be the point? To destroy it, and waste the money spent? Not Apple’s way.

  1. There is no hope this guy Clover …he is a philistine and a moron ! Steve Jobs does not need any upgrade because the way he dress up is near perfect. That is why millions look up to Steve!!!

    1. Being a fantastic marketing genius like Steve is no reason not to at least change the uniform once in a while. Break it up a little Steve. Wear a grey mock turtleneck then maybe a blue one or even be so bold as to go for a red some day! Hey fanboys, quit trying to defend someone who can’t be defended. He does look silly wearing the “uniform” constantly. What would you say if dopey Ballmer did that? Huh? I’m sorry I didn’t hear you. Genius has nothing to do with his clothes. He’d be just as smart if he dressed like a grownup. C’mon, it’s silly as hell.

      1. I’m sure it just eats Steve up inside that he’s not a big enough wuss to capitulate to all the “grown-ups” demanding that he dress in different clothes. How can he sleep at night?

        You get extra Clueless Points for calling him a marketing genius, by the way.

          1. The truth is, Steve, like Apple, doesn’t “toe the line” like others with mediocre mentalities do. Your weak troll attempt and fanboy meme is so typical of this type of mentality. Way to bolster that simple-minded stereotype!

    1. You’re right in fact I recently read on another website that he was quoted years ago “I don’t give a shit how I look” there you have it. That’s one secure guy!

  2. I, for one, am glad to see that Steve Ballmer made it to the top 15 best dressed list by default of not being on the worst dressed list. Way to go sweaty armpits!!!

        1. How is using the word homo making fun of “gay” people? My point is that since GQ is run by homo’s for homo’s, if you are not homo then GQ’s opinion on anything is irrelevant.
          I like pussy, you like dick, to each his own.

    1. Suits are not only completely over-rated but are our ultimate fathers or dad-wear. How many of you see a guy in a suit and immediately suspicions or a wariness arise no matter what the situation? A guy in t-shirt and jeans doesn’t look like a bad guy but down to earth like the rest of us mortals. It’s a master stroke NOT to wear a suit. Of course I’ve yet to see Steve Ballmer look good in anything and his idea of casual clothes are hideous in the extreme. Who makes those choices for him? Another equally clueless soul like Bill Gates?

    2. Steve Jobs is a man with priorities figured out. His outfits states: I’m too busy revolutionizing the way all people work and communicate in the digital age to think about how I look.

  3. Meh, to hell with fashion and formalities. If the clothes keeps one warm, and protects them from getting busted for indecent exposure, and is not tattered and grimy, who really should care?
