This is Steve Jobs’s wardrobe evolution since 1998, the year he returned to command Apple as interim CEO. You gotta admire a man who is loyal to his style no matter what. But my favourite Jobs is the old-school Jobs.
After he returned to Apple, it was all Levi’s, New Balances and black sweaters. One day I saw him wearing a suit — kind of — in a MacWorld Japan keynote, but that was it.
Back in the ’70s and ’80s his wardrobe used to be a mix of everything, from walking around the Apple campus barefoot in a t-shirt and shorts to old-school three-piece suits to show his computers in fairs and keynotes. See below for some of his favourite looks through those years.
