“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

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 ICanHasCheezburger.com
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
