Is Mark Zuckerberg’s Iconic Hoodie Actually A $2,000 Italian Cashmere Hoodie?
Mark Zuckerberg has been on paternity leave since his daughter Maxima was born at the beginning of December. That said, his Facebook status updates have been plentiful over the last seven weeks: There’s a post about a data center opening in Ireland, posts about 360 videos that will soon be flooded all over your newsfeed, posts about Internet.org, posts about his colleague Andrew Bosworth’s 10 year anniversary at Facebook. You get the point: Zuckerberg is posting to the social network behemoth he created quite a lot these days.
Today he charmed with this zinger about having to pick an outfit for going back to work. Zuck got jokes! It also shows that he’s a regular-every-day-bro who likes being comfortable in a hoodie when he goes to work in the morning. Hey, who doesn’t?!
The eagle-eyed fashion Bros at GQ, meanwhile, noticed that the hoodies in Zuck’s Facebook post are no $25 Hollister bargain bin threads. Zuck’s one of the richest men in the world, after all, so he can afford to upgrade from a fleece/cotton blend to a garment that’s a much more exotic. Fashion blogger Jake Woolf speculates those gray tees and hoodies are actually cashmere, possibly from brands like J.Crew, Elder Statesman, and Brunello Cucinelli. Price range? $900 for a tee to $2000 for a hoodie.
Yep. $2000. For a plain gray hoodie.
Of course, we don’t know this for certain. It could just be a run-of-the-mill Old Navy special.
Fingers crossed he leaves a comment on that status update telling the world what brand his hoodies are. It’s info the world needs to know, because Kanye said it best: “Sweatshirts are fucking important.”
