Porc club = enough explanation as to why they are the way they are.
Does The Social Network give the impression that, as students, the Winklevoss twins usually dressed in suits? By the way, the actual brothers' suits don't seem to fit well.
+1. Criticising a former student of the university you teach in, in public, is a bit unnecessary to say the least.
If someone wants to wear a suit, wear a goddamn suit.
And all of this coming from Larry Summers of all people. Ha!
But they ARE assholes!!
They responded to the comment via a letter to the current President at Harvard:
Yeah Larry, I wonder why a 6'5", Harvard educated, handsome, multimillionaire Olympian in his mid 20s would have "such swagger".
A good letter--I'm surprised as porc club members, they opted to go the "everyone should be allowed to dress however they want" route rather than the "Gentlemen know how to dress well for the occasion" route, but I guess this is more public friendly.
Where have you been for the last 40 years? Pajamas, jeans, and old t-shirts are the uniform from Harvard right on down to Cum Dumpster U. That said, I do agree with you on dress/decorum when meeting a university president on "official" business.
Not in the South, hahaha.
The final clubs are a step above that dress wise.
You sound like the type of asshole that Summers was talking about
plus one, and anyone named Winklevoss is an asshole, full stop.
There's a lesson people could take from this, if, for example, they're "too good-looking:
Know one's audience, and avoid what's considered flashy for one's age or circumstances.
For example, the twins could have worn sportcoats, light blue OCBD's, and dress pants. Friendlier, less "swagger." Summers probably felt resentment at being outdressed by privileged "kids."
There are two sides to a coin. That's a valid side of it. On the other side, a former Chief Economist of the World Bank and Secretary to the Treasury from a family of nobel laureates should not feel threatened by a pair of 20 year olds in suits. Edit: Unless of course I am misinterpreting "feeling threatened" for contempt towards perceived pomposity.
Are you basing this on personal knowledge of these individuals or just the movie's portrayal of them?
Because Facebook is a paradigm clearly designed by an asshole. Only a total effing ASSHOLE would inflict Farmville and MobWars on innocent human beings, and I don't believe those gentlemen had anything to do with those travesties.
