Everybody knows Jobs famous uniform style, black turtlenecks with jeans. But how did Steve came up with the idea of wearing these kind of cloths all the time? In Walter Isaacsons upcoming biography of Jobs, Steve is revealing the history behind the wardrobe choice. “On a trip to Japan in the early 1980s, Jobs asked Sonys chairman Akio Morita why everyone in the companys factories wore uniforms. He told Jobs that after the war, no one had any clothes, and companies like Sony had to give their workers something to wear each day. Over the years, the uniforms developed their own signatures styles, especially at companies such as Sony, and it became a way of bonding workers to the company. “I decided that I wanted that type of bonding for Apple,” Jobs recalled.” Read the rest of Jobs explanation of his uniform after the break. » Why Steve Jobs Wore The Black Mock Turtleneck Uniform
