The reason behind Mark Zuckerberg wears the same shirt!
In one of the first Friday Q&As of Summer 2011 after the interns arrived, one intern asked for the mic and asked something like “Hey Zuck, me and a couple of the other new interns were wondering, do you have more than one shirt?” The whole room (including Mark Zuckerberg) cracked up, but he went on to say that he wears the same clothes every day because he’s busy and it makes for one less thing to think about in the morning.
Mark Zuckerberg is a man of humble tastes. His attire usually consists of Adidas flip flops, a grey T-shirt and his signature hoodie. But don’t be fooled by his simple outfit, there’s an important reason behind it.
In his first public Q&A at Facebook’s HQ last night, Zuckerberg revealed he wears the same clothes over and over again because he wants to limit the time he spends making “frivolous” decisions so he can concentrate on real work.
He said: “I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community”I feel like I’m not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life, so that way I can dedicate all of my energy towards just building the best products and services,” he added.
Zuckerberg noted Apple founder Steve Jobs used to wear the same clothes too- mostly jeans and a black turtleneck shirt. President Barack Obama has a similar theory when it comes to clothes, telling Vanity Fair he has “many other decisions to make” so choosing what suit to wear isn’t on his to-do list.
