    To some extent, it would cause chaos among retailers if they had to stock Jobs' range of clothing. Some people call him the 'ninja' and some the very smart guy from California, but surely you would expect a CEO of a multi-billion dollar company to wear some decent clothing, perhaps he's sense of fashion is still left untouched since the early 90's.

    Wearing the same clothing for 20 years shows he is unhygienic and promotes unprofessionalism amongst his image towards the public.

    With the statement from a recent website, shunning the more traditional view of Fortune 100 company’s CEO being required to wear a suit and tie, Steve shocked the community back in 1998 by appearing in his first presentation wearing jeans, a turtle-neck sweater and snickers. Even more disturbing is that this is exactly the wardrobe for all of his presentations since. May the combination of St. Croix black turtleneck, blue Levi’s 501 and New Balance 991 shoes be some kind of magic? Who knows! But whether there is some secret in this plain combination of everyday garments or the success is to be attributed exclusively to Steve’s talents, we await each and every one of his presentations with held breaths.

    It would be hardly unsurprising seeing Steve Ballmer or Bill Gates wearing a 90's black polo sweater and worker blue denim jeans.

    Apart from Steve's lack of clothing range, he is a truly intellectual and inspiring person, or should I say a legend?

    I imagine he does get his outfit laundered on occasion, so I don't know about the unhygenic part.

    As for professionalism, he has a consistent uniform appearance. His performance as CEO has more bearing on his professionalism than his attire.

    I don't get the unhygienic part either.

    Hygienic in terms of wearing the same type of clothing over and over again, not literally physically dirty, I would also imagine he's got a washing machine at home.

    However, you are in the U.K. Perhaps there is a nuance of meaning (e.g wearing the same outfit = poor grooming = unhygienic) that escapes us Yanks.

    This. Clothes do not make the man. His legacy will be his ideas and performance, not his attire.

    he doesnt need to fake it until he makes it.

    he already made it, and then some.

    but i think i will remember the style as a component of the myth/legend.

    He likes to wear something comfortable whilst doing a Keynote, instead of a suit. Who cares?

    His adulation for Simon Cowell's much spoken style with regards to having trousers situated above the belly button is indeed inspiring. I wish I was brave enough to pull off this astonishing feat because, after all, I'm "wearing it wrong".

    All the other guys who go on stage don't wear suits either. Apple Seemingly want to make it more intimate and less salesman'esque type of thing.

    Take a look at Apple's retail stores: Piercings, tattoos, long hair, funky glasses, ripped pants, shorts, everyone has different shoes on, etc.

    Apple obviously is a denizen of breaking the norm (Think Different if you will), and I think it really benefits them to have this casual, easygoing business style.
