Are you stuck in the rat race? If so, then you’re also stuck in the dress code. What do I mean? I mean you need to wear a penguin suit every day for the rest of your life until you’re packaged out. So if you’re looking for a little more motivation for becoming rich, then how about this: dressing however the fuck you want. Let’s take a look at a couple of people who became rich enough to wear whatever the hell they want, and at the same time, inspiring a whole new dress code for their generation.
We all know who this guy is. When it comes to dress, Steve Jobs is Mr. black turtleneck, jeans, and sneakers, everyday. Now advertising executives everywhere copy his style (with little success), because they haven’t reached success yet. Remember, cart (money) before the horse (dress however the hell you want).
Mr. Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg wears a hoodie every single day. He says it’s because it helps him to make one less decision in his very busy day. But this is an excuse only Mark can use, as he’s a billionaire many times over.
Sure, 2 Chainz made his millions as a rapper. And rappers are known for dressing in outlandish attire. But 2 Chainz is now a mogul, but still stays true to his look, looking like this everywhere he goes.
Famed advertising creative director, Lee Clow, is the man behind many of Nike’s campaigns. He’s also the guy behind the popular Twitter account – @LeeClowsBeard. Because Lee doesn’t believe in shaving, or, wearing suits.
Sure, comedic genius Louis CK can get away with being a jeans and T-shirt guy because, well, he’s a comedian. But his agents and sponsors will tell you that the guy you see on stage is the very same walking into business meetings.
Walt Frazier, New York Knicks star player in the 70’s was known more for being a style god, than a great basketball player. Although he could score at will, “Clyde” Frazier’s outfits were full of fur coats and pimp hats.
Yeezy is no longer just a rapper. He’s a media mogul, taking his regular dress attire and turning it into a multi-million dollar business. Besides, when was the last time you’ve seen him in a suit? Like never, he’s at that level of money when he can wear whatever the hell he wants.
When it comes to changing a whole industry dress-code, The Answer, Allen Iverson, had the answer. Once Allen secured a multi-million dollar contract from the NBA, he corn-rowed his hair, wore baggy street clothes adorned with bling, and the next thing you know, everyone else in the NBA followed suit. That is until the NBA instituted a dress-code – all because of Iverson.
