The changing style of Silicon Valley

In the 2007 song by the Richter Scales that tried to capture the zeitgeist of the bubble era, the uniform of the techie was blue shirts and khaki pants. I had 5 or 6 pairs of Khaki pants and 3-5 different blue shirts.

Thanks to Mr. Zuckerberg, the new uniform of the bay area is jeans, hoodie and button down shirt.

As someone who hated the blue shirt, and loves the hoodie … Mr. Zuckerberg I thank you!

The hoodie has become such a fashion statement that fashion designers have taken on making it look better.

For an interesting take on the recent history of the hoodie check this blog post out.
