Not that he's likely going to lose a lot of sleep over the major dis' but GQ Magazine has voted Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg the worst-dressed man in Silicon Valley.

Here's GQ's sniffy description for Zuckerberg's sartorial style (or lack thereof):

"Oblivious to the fact that jeans and ties come in skinny sizes--or that suits exist--the father of Facebook (and we do mean father) loves to recycle the fresh-from-Stats-class look. Zuck's style is so poor, it even inspired a mock fashion line, Mark By Mark Zuckerberg, which thankfully doesn't sell any actual clothing."

OK, it's late summer, the country's in a funk and the markets are tanking so maybe GQ figured it was time to take a shot at some of the tech industry's leading lights. But snark notwithstanding, Zuckerberg - aka "the hoodie" - is in good company when it comes to marching out the door with barely a second thought to matching shoes, pants and shirts: Steve Jobs finished second while Bill Gates was right behind at the 3 spot.
