I have to believe that Michael Pachter of Wedbush Securities is just looking for attention at this point. Yesterday, we reported that Pachter called Mark Zuckerberg’s signature hoodie a “mark of immaturity” is at it again on Bloomberg.
This time, he has alternative fashion suggestions for Zuck (bold by TNW):
If I’m surprised at anything, it’s the vehemence of the response. I didn’t say Mark Zuckerberg should never wear a hoodie. I didn’t say he’s a bad guy, he’s evil, he’s dishonest – I said nothing at all that impugns his integrity. What I said was, when a public company CEO goes to Wall Street and asks Wall Street for money, it’s appropriate to dress for the occasion. I didn’t even say suit…I mean, a jacket over a T-shirt and jeans would be fine. It would show some respect. A pin-striped hoodie would have been okay. That would have been funny – it would have been a great tongue-in-cheek move by Zuckerberg.
F**k it, we'll do it live!
Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.
Pachter wasn’t done there, going on to discuss the other places that it’s disrespectful to wear a hoodie:
He wouldn’t go to a wedding in hoodie. Maybe he would but he shouldn’t. He wouldn’t go to church in a hoodie. I mean you shouldn’t. You just show the institution respect and I think he didn’t show respect on Wall Street.
So Wall Street is a church now?
Watch the whole interview and let’s all shake our heads in unison:
