It is rightly said that sums of money cannot buy style! Mark Zuckerberg , CEO and founder of world’s No. 1 social networking site-Facebook tops GQ’s worst-dressed men in Silicon Valley list. Zuckerberg takes the crown, his poorly-fitting jeans, penchant for flip-flops, old-fashioned ties and badly-cut blazers, as immortalized in the Oscar-winning movie, The Social Network, all contributing to the position. He managed to beat out Apple CEO Steve Jobs who stood. Zuckerberg’s ill fitting hoodies, jeans, t-shirts and Adidas sandals all together contribute in making him top the chart of the worst dressed techies.
We have always loved writing about the Apple CEO Steve Jobs. Indeed is the man of inventions but the disheartening part of his personality is that he is usually spotted in his seeming to be the trademark uniform of ‘black turtleneck, dad jeans and Seinfeld kicks’ that contributes in making him enter the list of the most worst dressed techies. According to the magazine, Steve is a ‘style blunder no Auto Correction can fix’.

Shantanu Narayen, president and CEO of Adobe Systems Inc. grew up in Hyderabad and studied at Osmania Univ before migrating to USA. Once in the USA, he has gone from one success to the next. Shantanu is also the part of worst dressed techies.

The co-founder of social networking sites Dodgeball and Foursquare, Dennis Crowley has successfully grabbed the fifth position. GQ writes: Crowley’s biggest style sin includes his appearances in college sweatshirts. The magazine advises Crowley to reserve his college sweatshirts for lazy Sundays, grocery runs, and gym visits.
The co-founder and chairman of professional social networking site LinkedIn, Reid Hoffman is yet another style sinner who is up on the list grabbing the 6th position. According to GQ, ‘Hoffman isn’t Silicon Valley’s most flagrant style offender, but it is easy to mistake him for the cable guy who shows up for appointments sometime between the hours of 8 am and 9 pm’.
Tom Anderson, the Los Angeles resident and former co-founder of MySpace is also among the worst dressed techies. His over-layering T-shirt, hoodie and blazer all together contribute well in making him the entrant of the list.

Ron Conway, one of the early investor in Google, PayPal, Facebook and Digg is at no. 13 of the list. His high water trousers contribute a great deal in making him one of the worst dressed techies. GQ writes-Conway’s high trousers aren’t supposed to hover above ankles, effectively cutting off height, nor should blazers graze thighs.
At no. 14 is the founder of San Francisco-based website Craigslist, Craig Newmark. His wrinkled shirts, oversized blazers and a beret fetish make him the badly dressed man. GQ writes-there’s a fine line between looking artsy and uncomfortable which Craig has stepped over.
