San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
To the dread of technology executives from Silicon Valley to Silicon Alley, Cheap-Neckties.com today announced its list of 2011’s Worst dressed Tech CEOs. Guilty of fashion crimes ranging from flip-flops to kitschy graphic t-shirts to fishing vests, the five executives singled out on Cheap-neckties.com’s scathing annual list owe a major debt to style society.
Although money can’t buy style, it should at least be able to buy Facebook creator, CEO and President Mark Zuckerberg a new t-shirt. Zuckerberg takes the number five spot on the list for repeatedly wearing what appears to be the same grey t-shirt. He also seems to have special affinity for a certain hooded Harvard University sweatshirt, which is an especially interesting wardrobe choice for a man who dropped out of the school. Cheap-neckties.com advises him to buy some new shirts and lose the flip-flops in favor of “some fine Italian footwear.”
In the number four spot, Microsoft CEO and current chairman Bill Gates gets a call from the Fashion Police. While the man is known for his management style, he’s definitely not known for any other style. His customary unpressed khakis are pitiful, while his V-neck sweaters make him look like he’s shopping at his local strip mall. Cheap-neckties.com recommends that Melinda help polish her husband’s look with some of the site’s light blue ties to bring out the blue in his eyes.
Always dressed to depress, Foursquare founder and CEO Dennis Crowley sticks with wrinkled jeans and running shoes. The look is not business casual, so much as it is business criminal. For Crowley, the online men’s accessories retailer sets a low bar. The fashion police at Cheap-neckties.com would be happy if he just gets out of his hooded sweatshirts.
Sony Corporation Chairman, President and CEO Sir Howard Stringer wears many hats, but a fisherman’s hat shouldn’t be one of them. He is the rare man who naturally possesses the class and dignity to wear smoking jackets and ascots. Instead, Sir Stringer inexplicably prefers outdoorsy gear such as fishing vests. Cheap-neckties.com recommends he pay tribute to his Welsh ancestry with ties from its British Classics Collection.
“It’s ironic that all these men are multi-millionaires, yet they look like vagabonds. One would feel tempted to offer any them $5 if he saw them walking down the street!,” said Cheap-Neckties.com founder Hendrik Pohl. “Incidentally, just $5 would buy them any one in a number of flattering neckties on Cheap-Neckties.com.”
While Cheap-Neckties.com applauds billionaire Bill Gates’s tremendous charitable giving efforts, the site also recommends he contribute to the noble cause of employing an army of stylists to give him and his high-tech industry peers fashion makeovers for 2012.
