    If your refering to the black shirt, it's a mock turtle-neck. The exact one probably cost some money but many stores carry mock turtle-necks.

    http://www.stevesoutfit.com/ is actually wrong in that it shows a full blown turtle-neck.

    For more detailed info, google and there are several post in this forum talking about his garb.

    If it's other, a more specific keynote date/topic would help as lately he's pretty much showed up with the same gear with the exception of a black button up shirt.

    I have one that I think may possibly be one of Steve's. Obviously I don't have any proof, so it doesn't have any value. I purchased it on ebay as such from an anonymous seller in Cupertino along with some other very rare Apple shirts, genuine ones. The mock-turtle neck shirt in question is obviously black with a very subtle small black embroidered Apple log with is unnoticeable unless you are very close. I have never worn it just in case it is genuine. Assuming it is Steve's, he wears a size medium shirt.

    God, if he's actually spending any significant amount of money on that god-awful outfit... :p Those clothes look like they've been in his closet for the past twenty years.

    I'm curious what the OP found cool about a very basic, non-branded, turtle neck or mock turtle neck. Further curiousity wants to ask what rock the kid has been under? I mean, basic black shirt....ok cool to him, maybe, but again, not knowing where to buy a basic black shirt is funny.

    Considering that mock turtle necks black can be bought at ohh, say, Walmart, Target, Kohls, maybe even Dollar General. :eek:

    You can get them at any Apple Store, but you have to know the secret handshake. You have to show up at precisely 9:59 PM and go thought the red door located in the rear of the store.

    I like the way Steve Dresses. Even tho he is extremely wealthy, he doesn't show it off by wearing flashy clothes. He's like the average joe and I think that's cool.:cool:

    he dresses like that because he doesn't want to be bothered by having to choose something as basic as clothing. focus on more important issues then.

    at least thats the thought.

    That reminds me of this Joy of Tech cartoon (well, the opening screen anyway).
