You're Worth Billions of Dollars!

Your company's gone public, you just got married, your billions increased (for a while), and the fashionable powers-that-be are still bitching about your hoodie.

From WWD. Forget the hoodie, the denim wash and shoes totally make it a D+.

Would you care if you were worth that much? Me, I'd be laughing all the way to the hoodie bank. Although for real if I could wield that many dollars I'd have Nicolas Ghesquière on my speed dial and it would be the Balenciaga/Chalayan/Demeulemeester bank.

Hoodies from Alternative Apparel.

While Fashionista and most likely others have gone the designer route with a Zuckerberg hoodie-free makeover, I'd go with the "he doesn't care" thing and assume his new bride will force him into suits on occasion while he stays in hoodies and T's at all other times.

From Levi's: A premium T and skinny monochrome pant.

Shopping for your own Zuckerberg, but minus the billions? Let me recommend 34th Street. Kicks, T's and hoodies are our bread-and butter. See: Alternative Apparel boutique in Macy's Herald Square for stellar hoodies and super-hip sweats; WHO.A.U for great weekend plaids; and our Levi's boutique for classic, stylish denim and well-made basic T's. Trust me, I've got a Zuckerberg-dresser at home, and all of the former do wonders for honing his über-casual, college-boy inclinations.

Also, it's time to get your Mark out of the ugly trainers and into some cool kicks. This is an easy trip to either House of Hoops by Foot Locker, or the big and beautiful Foot Locker across from Macy's Herald Square.

This is hysterical! Love it. I actually got my boyfriend a cashmere hoodie this past Christmas. He just won't let go of a hoodie he's had since college - it's ratty and basically gross, but he thinks it's the most comfortable thing. So to compromise, I got him a cashmere hoodie from Saks (on sale from the outlet, of course). Now he can rock his casual, comfortable look with a bit of style ;)

Well done! I'd totally go the cashmere hoodie route, too. My guy considers Pop's in Greenpoint (basically work/army-navy) his shopping mecca:)
