During a public Q&A at the Facebook headquarters, the tech company's founder, Mark Zuckerberg, answered the one question we've all been wondering: Why does he wear the same thing everyday? Surprisingly, Zuckerberg's answer had nothing to do with style (although the gray tee does look like a #normcore staple). Instead, Zuckerberg cites a number of psychological advantages to never changing his look.

"I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible, other than how to best serve this community," Zuckerberg explains in the video above. He also says that even making little decisions like what to eat or wear can expend energy he'd rather use on making tough choices for his giant social media platform. 

Zuckerberg is not the first man to don a uniform, though, and other tech giants have taken to rarely varying their outfits. Steve Jobs, for one, used to wear his trademark turtleneck to create an identity for his brand. Even outside of the tech world, company heads have used repetitive clothing as a business strategy. For example, fashion designers like Thom Browne and Karl Lagerfeld also wear uniforms. Even Kim Kardashian  recently said she doesn't buy clothes for Kanye because "he wears the same thing over and over." So, if the shoe fits, wear it. Over and over and over again.
