Refinery 29, a website for women yesterday published 9 of SF’s hottest tech guys, a list that include my good friend designer Daniel Burka and fellow scribe Nick Bilton. Congrats boys!
After falling for the slideshow click bait, I was left with two thoughts — First — yay for forced diversity. Second, the uniformity of the look amongst all the guys who were featured in this slideshow: Skinny pants – rolled up. Tight plaid shirts. Scruffy appearance!
I refuse to believe that is the only “style” look we have in the SF Bay Area tech community. Actually it is a complete failure and sheer laziness of the style editor for not being able to look beyond this single-specific look. Secondly, by highlighting this one look specific to a certain type of dude, Refinery 29 is showing it unrefined tastes.
