At some point, after he returned to save Apple in the wake of the John Scully era, Steve Jobs settled on the long-sleeve black mock-turtleneck sweater and faded blue jeans that would become a sartorial trademark to last him the rest of his life. Good thing too, as it not only honed his personal brand but provided an unchanging constant supporting his role as Apple’s pitchman, who would introduce one revolutionary product after another over the last fifteen years of his life.
Jobs embraced the role that would one day make Apple one of the most successful companies in the world.
