Mark Zuckerberg created a serious fuss this week by turing up to the Facebook IPO roadshow wearing a hoodie. A couple of analysts got their knickers in a twist saying that he was showing a lack of respect, which was then followed by blogs and the press having a go at the stiff bankers who are totally set in their ways.
Now one enterprising company is looking to cash in on the incident (with some lucky timing it has to be said) with the release of the world's first executive hoodie. It's called The Executive Pinstripe Hoodie and it's pretty expensive as it has a $149 pricetag, but it's made to help you blend in with the best dressed people in the office, while still appealing to your inner skater.
Zuckerberg's dress sense has always been a source of amusement from the early days of the Adidas trainers right through to the exact details the producers of the film The Social Network went to match his unique casual taste. Fair play to the company for coming up with this and while we can't see them shifting too many in the long term, it's a great way of promoting their other lines.
If you like this so much that you want one right now, you can head over and pre-order and they will be made available at the end of May. You might not have Zuckerberg's billions, but you can have his dress sense at least.
