No problem with Steve Jobs doing it, it was authentic and original.  I seem to remember Gates always wearing Dockers and a light blue button up shirt which seemed authentic too (he dressed like he worked at blockbuster) (howsthat for a 90's pop culture reference)

But all these succession CEOs wearing a costume for the crowd drive me nuts.

CP, what's this about? Just the fact that high tech CEO's don't wear suits and ties?

Nah, it's that they all have this unauthentic image they try to give off.  I suspect the vast majority of those guys typically are dressed in business casual, but when they give a speech they all try to look like Jobs.

Is it really any less authentic than CEO's and CFO's in the past wearing suits? And regardless of whether or not it is or isn't.......does that really drive you nuts? You should find a hobby.

Yes. CEOs and CFOs in the past wore suits because 1) that's what they wore every day anyway and 2) that's what everyone wore every day anyway.

Tech is one of those industries where most CEO's wear jeans on a daily basis, so I don't take it as putting on a show....it's what they wear. Same goes with Oil & Gas. I wear jeans and causal friday is shorts. The CEO wears shorts every day unless there's a meeting, in which chase, he wears jeans.

Bitching about frivolous shit on Mug's silly board is my hobby.

Back in the '50s businessmen also used to wear hats and the women wore white gloves.  When I was working I recall Fridays being dress down day.  That's when casualness began.  Then it spread to every weekday.  Hell man, it's not uncommon to see guys not even wearing a tie at weddings or funerals, the most sacred of events.  Think of the dough you're saving for your wardrobe.
