Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook, has recently revealed in his first public Q&A the reason why he wears his famous grey t-shirt everyday. He owns several versions of the same t-shirt, and has disclosed that he believes choosing what to wear, along with what to eat for breakfast, is a “silly” decision he would rather not spend time and energy on.
Supporting one of the great advantages of wearing a uniform for work, we have to agree with Zuckerberg – not having to make that decision about what to wear for work certainly saves money and the time spent agonizing over your wardrobe.
Zuckerberg, however, isn’t the only well-known entrepreneur to be famous for wearing the same outfit to work everyday. Below is our top selection of other wellknown faces who have worn the same clothing (or versions of) for work over the years:
The TV presenter and music producer is well-known for wearing his standard open collar white shirt, high-waisted trousers and black jacket.
You will rarely see the founder of Virgin wearing anything but a white shirt, much like Cowell above.
The late Apple boss and co-founder’s daily attire was his black turtleneck.
Designer Karl Lagerfeld is rarely seen without his trademark gloves, white shirt, black tie and black sunglasses.
While the colour variation and creativity isn’t exactly riveting, these guys have saved themselves a lot of time over the years. Is there anyone we’ve missed off the list? Let us know below or tweet us @Clothes2order.
It’s almost the end of October which means that if you’re taking part in Sober October, your days of sobriety are nearly over!
Emma, one of our account managers here at Clothes2order, has almost successfully completed Sober October to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Although as part of Sober October rules there is a chance to buy a golden ticket for £10 to have a night off, and a glass of wine (or two), Emma has so far stayed alcohol-free for the whole month.
She has already raised £165 but the month isn’t over yet! If you’d like to donate to Emma to help raise vital funds to support cancer suffers please give here
Have you been taking part in Sober October? Or will you be doing Movember or any other charity events in the run up to Christmas? Let us know below to be in with a chance of winning a printed t-shirt in support of your cause!

Forget stress balls, according to the BBC this week, Japanese designer Tomomi Sayuda has come up with a new tool to combat the strains and tensions of the working week: a helmet. Called Mask of Soul, each helmet is colourful and cartoon-esque, and is designed to combat office-related tensions and burdens.
The question is, would you where one of these helmets to work?
Last night marked the 66th Emmy Awards – and with lots of popular TV series proving worthy winners, we thought we’d look at the shows that are influencing what we are wearing…
Orange is the New Black
The TV series made orange so cool, that one prison in Michigan decided to ditch their luminous jumpsuits and replaced them with black-and-white striped jumpsuits.
A sheriff at the Saginaw County Jail commented: “It’s because as you see shows on television, like Orange Is The New Black, some people think it’s cool to look like an inmate of the Saginaw County Jail with wearing all-orange jumpsuits out at the mall or in public.
“It’s a concern because we do have our inmates out sometimes doing work in the public, and I don’t want anyone to confuse them or have them walk away.
“We decided that the black-and-white stripes would be the best way to go because it signifies ‘jail inmate,’ and I don’t see people out there wanting to wear black-and-white stripes.”
Big winners at the Emmy’s last night, hit show Breaking Bad has also seen a surge in popularity in the hat market. The signature pork pie hat as worn by Bryan Cranston’s Walter White has proved extremely popular with fans. However, this Heisenburg hat has a hefty price tag of $150.
Game of Thrones
Printed t-shirts bearing slogans or characters from shows such as Game of Thrones are becoming increasingly popular, however it is the medieval fashion from this cult TV series that has become in demand. From high end fashion houses to small jewellery businesses, everyone wants to cash in on the layered fur, house sigils and intricate embroidery of the show.
