Yesterday we reported that an analyst name Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities told Bloomberg that he had spotted Face book CEO Zuckerberg with the hoodie – it is just the matter of fact that the very same analyst hit it again on Zuckerberg, this time suggesting that “a jacket over a T-shirt and Jeans would be fine”.
If I’m surprised at anything, it’s the vehemence of the response. I didn’t say Mark Zuckerberg should never wear a hoodie. I didn’t say he’s a bad guy, he’s evil, he’s dishonest – I said nothing at all that impugns his integrity. What I said was, when a public company CEO goes to Wall Street and asks Wall Street for money, it’s appropriate to dress for the occasion. I didn’t even say suit…I mean, a jacket over a T-shirt and jeans would be fine. It would show some respect. A pin-striped hoodie would have been okay. That would have been funny – it would have been a great tongue-in-cheek move by Zuckerberg.
