    If you think about how after Jobs returned to Apple and started wearing the same outfit every day he became more than just a man. He became a legend.

    Every time I hear that quote from Ra's Al Ghul in Batman Begins I think of Job's. No joke. I mean who else wear's the same outfit every time they are seen in public besides super heroes?

    For one, Woody Allan always wore essentially the same outfits - stating he had more important things to do than pick out clothes every day. I believe Albert Einstein did something similar. (Not absolutely sure about Einstein)

    There were others who did the same-clothes-every-day thing. None, I can say with some assurance, were Batamn. :rolleyes:;)

    If it doesn't become a personal hygiene issue, I could actually not care any less what people wear.

    As long as some of them are covered, I'm good.

    So, I guess my psychology professor from college was Bruce Wayne. He wore the same thing every day: blue button up dress shirt and khakis. He always said he had more important things to think about than what he was going to wear to work every day.

    There are lots of people who could be batman if that's all it take. You're forgetting that Batman used his vast personal wealth to help people.

    You're missing the point. Through his act of wearing the same outfit whenever we see him he becomes a symbol or living legend the way Batman does.

    No, his clothes become a symbol of him. When I see people wearing a Jobs-esque outfit I think of him, but that doesn't mean he is a symbol. Seeing him doesn't inspire any emotional response.
