Silicon Valley techies go stylish

The Silicon Valley has had a men’s fashion problem dating back to its founders.
From their inception, tech companies went out of their way to be different – and that meant no more business suits. Thus brilliant innovations took place in the dumpiest of outfits as leather sandals, elastic-waist jeans and old T-shirts became ubiquitous.
But that’s changing as a younger generation of engineers and designers have arrived seeking clothes that coordinate.
“There’s definitely a shift happening here, and the age of the Silicon Valley culture has something to do with it,” said image professional Joseph Rosenfeld.
“As a generation,” he said, young professionals “tend to care more about style than engineers of the past.”
