In March 2009, I posted an article about Mark Zuckerberg's style fail during his feature on the Today Show (sorry, the tie doesn't make the fleece-North Face jacket a sport coat).
Rather than shame the guy further, I thought I would offer our Facebook Hero/Villain a realistic style makeover. In an attempt to respect his comfort driven, casual style, we at Hendricks Park put together what we might send him in his first box if he asked us to upgrade his style a notch (baby steps!).
1. Long sleeve zip-polo from Agave; 1a. Green, graphic T-shirt from Tailgate to get him out of his solid grey and olive T-shirt rut; 2. Since he is very attached to wearing a North Face jacket (instead of business jackets), a stylish performance jacket from NAU is a perfect way to polish his look; 3. Bye-bye baggy jeans! Hello comfy-hip denim from Citizens of Humanity (Jagger); 4. Vintage (original!) Army belt from WILL belts; 4a. Recycled fire-hose belt from FeurWear; 5. Burnished chocolate suede chukkas by AURI; 5a. Navy and black canvas & leather sneakers by AURI (AURI shoes have NASA designed temperature regulating technology for maximum comfort).
1. Charcoal, windowpane button up shirt and black tie; 2. Fashion meets performance wear in a black, Riding Jacket by NAU; 3. Dark denim that's hard to beat by Agave (Gringo in Leukadia Flex Dark), 4. If Mark insists on wearing sneakers, let's trade out those white, running shoes for a pair of sleek, street sneakers in black leather and suede by AURI.
In summary, technology and style can coexist. I'm married to a tech guy who dressed similar to Mark Zuckerberg for years. Now, my former baggy jeans, Threadless.com, Northface, REI, junkie bugs me regularly to find out what I have coming in for Hendricks Park each month. He is not only on the quest for cool, new tech gear and gadgets, he also wants the coolest, new wardrobe gear.
All the best,
Lisa -Founder & CEO Hendricks Park
