Mark Zuckerberg Criticized For Wearing Hoodie to Investor Meetings

by at . Comments

This is probably not what Geraldo Rivera meant when he bashed hoodies.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has reportedly not impressed investors with his business savvy this week, and his signature sweatshirt has become emblematic of some long-held criticisms plaguing the online wunderkind.

In New York to woo investors for Facebook's IPO, Zuckerberg hasn't won over fans, fueling long-held rumors that for all his technical, innovative brilliance, Mark is an aloof, awkward guy who can't get it together for the suits.

He shows up late for meetings or not at all. And when he does make it, his laid-back outfits (see hoodie above) haven't helped, coming off as shlubby.

"Mark and his signature hoodie: He’s actually showing investors he doesn’t care that much; he’s just going to be him," Michael Pachter, an analyst for Wedbush Securities said in an interview on Bloomberg TV.

"I think that’s a mark of immaturity. I think that he has to realize he’s bringing investors in as a new constituency right now, and I think he’s got to show them the respect that they deserve because he’s asking them for money."

Hoodies seem to have a lot of "meaning" these days, as we know, but this is a new spin. What do you think? Should Zuck wear 'em to meetings?
