From "6 Telltale Signs It's Time to Upgrade Your Style." [A "sponsored" article at Gawker.]
Does that mean Steve Jobs was lazy and needed to upgrade his style? And as long as we're doing lists, we might as well shift over to "18 Famous People Who Always Dress The Same": Jobs, Zuckerberg, Tom Wolfe, Michael Kors, Larry Page...
These people are so not lazy. They're style icons, projecting power. The same clothes every day projects industriousness, efficiency, and — if you pick the right stuff — style.
Remember the scene in "The Fly" (the one with Jeff Goldblum)? He shows his closet:
[H]is girlfriend, Geena Davis, asks him why he never changes his clothes.Do you follow this path? If you do — or if you were to do this — what do you wear? Why isn't everyone wearing black knit tops and blue/black jeans (or a black skirt with or without tights)?
“What are you saying?” he replies. “I change my clothes every day.”
“Well, how come then you always wear the same thing?”
Goldblum walks over to his closet, opens it, and shows Davis a long rack of identical suits, ties, white shirts, and black shoes. “See?” he says. “What did I tell you?”
Albert Einstein was even less fashion-conscious and reportedly had only one suit of clothes. Like the Goldblum character, Einstein felt that having to worry about what to wear distracted him from more important work.
