5 billionaires who prove you don’t need swag when you’re stupid rich


We all dream of being filthy rich at one point in our lives. For some of us it’s an every day dream. The idea of nice clothes, cars, and a sweet penthouse seems so great.

Once you have money you no longer have to compare gas prices to save a few pennies or decide whether blowing your paycheck on some new Yeezys is a good life decision.

We would be looking mad fly if we had the money.

But maybe we have it backwards. It seems like the richest people don’t really spend their money the way we would.

Take Apple founder, Steve Jobs, for example he always had that classic turtleneck, basic jeans, and your average dad shoes.

There are a whole bunch of reasons for deciding to wear the same fit everyday.

You won’t need to run around wondering what to wear, you save money, especially if the fit is cheap, and you become a figure. People see you and they’ll instantly recognize you.

Many billionaire have definitely caught on and are just mailing it in with their fits.

Bill Gates, $89.9 billion net worth

Microsoft founder Bill Gates also seems to not spend much money on clothing. Just peep what he wore last year on vacation with Bono.

According to Forbes, Gates is the richest person on Earth. In fact, he has held this position for 18 of the past 23 years. This man is no joke.

You would assume the man is swagged out from head to toe, but no. It is understandable though, I mean the dude is 61 and rich as hell, he doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone.

Jeff Bezos, $114.2 billion net worth

Amazon’s CEO and Forbes second richest man (who’s trying to live forever) in the world, Jeff Bezos, used to be real simple. That was until this meme above showed his transformation.

It wasn’t until recently that Bezos glo’d up and started expanding his style, but he was previously known for his blue button downs and khakis.

Even still today it’s nothing too crazy, just clean looking suits, but I’ll give it to him he is definitely one of the best dressed on this list.

Mark Zuckerberg, $62.3 billion net worth

Forbes has the Facebook founder slotting in at 5th on the overall most paid list. It is shocking to see someone this young and racky have so little interest in fashion.

He always has a grey shirt on with jeans. His reasoning? In a 2014 Q&A Zuckerberg said,

“I really want to clear my life to make it so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.”

It would be nice not having to ever worry about what to wear but it seems so boring. Just look at that closet!

Phil Knight, $29.2 billion net worth


The Nike founder surprisingly isn’t dressed all that well either. Nike, which has such a superb line of state of the art sportswear, never helped Knight look fresh.

The man founded Nike, arguably the greatest sneaker brand we’ve ever seen. I guess when you focus on making sneakers for so long you forget about the rest of the fit.

He’s not as bad as others on the list. It’s a shame, just saying pinstripes and jeans… I don’t know man.

Elon Musk, $18 billion net worth


Tesla founder Elon Musk is another billionaire who doesn’t dress too badly but it’s just the simplicity that confuses us.

When Musk decides to dress casually he usually just wears a plain tee and jeans. Musk was married to an actress, how did he not take some swag notes?

For a man who is trying to bring us closer to the future, his style is very much stuck in the present.
