CALIFORNIA: For Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Facebook on Sunday, founder Mark Zuckerberg, who favours casuals, wore a suit. He was not alone in keeping to a dress code.
An advisory to all Facebook employees suggested “formals and no sleeveless shirts or shorts” for PM Modi’s visit to the headquarters of the social networking giant in Menlo Park. Men were asked to come in formal business wear while the women were asked to attend in “nice dresses”, reports said.
PM Modi wore a shirt and jacket.
Mr Zuckerberg is usually seen in a grey T-shirt, jeans and black hoodie. One of the richest men in the world, the Facebook founder owns many versions of the grey t-shirt and hoodie. When he was asked about his sartorial choice during a Q&A last year, he said he felt like he was not doing his job if “I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life.”
Since Mr Zuckerberg so strongly defends his casuals to work rule, the dress code for his employees raised eyebrows.
