1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Jobs used to rock the bow tie and DB pretty well.

    When you're young, hungry and want to be taken seriously, you dress up. When you're old, rich, and want people to think your dick still works, you dress like you're 22.

    He doesn't want to dress like a PC. He should go with that denim look though to be truly hip:

    I don't see very many 22 year old guys wearing any of the elements Steve is wearing, let alone all of them together at once.... 1. Dad jeans 2. Black mock turtleneck 3. Shirt tucked into jeans Sometimes I wonder if the Men's Clothing forum is divorced from reality. Where I live if you go to the local brew pub inhabited by mostly the college age group, usually the only people you see dressed anything like Steve Jobs are quite a bit older than 22. The man obviously feels vindicated through his more recent success as CEO of the company that he originally helped create and thus no longer needs to prove anything to the world. I would guess he also likes wearing the same casual uniform everyday since it speaks to being a regular guy, which has been an on-going trend in American culture for quite some time. AND he simply has no style!

    All right, dresses like he's 32. What a nit-picker. That, and it's part of the Jobs Brand. Does he show up (when he can walk) at meetings, etc., in this costume?

    Actually, I had a thought about this recently - as I was thinking about our former president and his folksy peasant looks, and actually about Jobs, and a few others, and I realized that a fair group of the rich dress in clothes that don't cost money. I found myself wondering if their stingyness has anything to do with our current economic situation....

    Most baby boomers I see dress similar to Jobs. Despite it not being the norm for a well known CEO, he is simply wearing an "average guy" outfit for someone his age. It's interesting you call it a costume since his old outfits from the 80's have a very costume like vibe to them. Young guys in the 80's did not sport such eccentric looks such as bow ties and double breasted jackets! Even then he was dressing outside of the socially accepted norm for his position.

    Maybe someone can explain to me, but what is "wrong" with the clothing Steve Jobs wears now? He actually looks very neat, with: a black mock turtleneck and jeans, both of which fit!

    Why do people now believe baggy hospital gown style scrub shirts and oversize jeans where leg bottoms drag along on the ground at feet and waist drapes off buttocks revealing boxer shorts is "awesome" and "vogue" look to copy?

    Does wearing a shirt in the mode previously reserved for pajama tops really look "spiffy" and well dressed, or does it suggest person is simply lazy and rolled out of bed late?

    Give the man some credit . . . he is consciousness enough as to his appearance to select and tuck in an appropriate sized shirt!

    No style. It's a lackluster uniform and this is a style forum. [​IMG] http://blogrizzard.blogspot.com/2008...bs-closet.html

    What I love about this picture is that you can see he actually combed his hair to look that way.

    Well since Jobs is a multi-billonaire I don't think he gives a shit what people think of his clothing style. He could wear a plaid robe and a velvet cape with a big J on the back everywhere and still be an alpha big timer.

    ..

    Tucking in a shirt without a collar makes you look retarded. His jeans are hideous.
