So you’re in with TechCrunch, have 500+ connections on LinkedIn and are getting cash from Sequoia Capital. The thing is, you’re still rolling into work in ill-fitting jeans.
Last year, our little Mark Zuckerberg was listed among Esquire’s top 10 worst dressed list inThe 2010 Celebrity Hall of Shame. Zuck shares the bi-winning honor with none other than Charlie Sheen. Yikes.
