In The Wall Street Journal’s new article, “The Rise of Power Jeans”, Tatango’s view on jeans in the tech industry and beyond is voiced, among the likes of Steve Jobs and Barack Obama. Andrew Dumont, VP of our group SMS service, not only believes in jeans in the workplace, he sees it as today’s norm:
We have Steve Jobs to thank for today’s power jeans. His uniform of Levi’s 501s and a black turtleneck was synonymous with innovation in the ’90s; now, in the tech world, dressy pants can be viewed with suspicion. “When someone shows up to an interview or meeting in anything other than jeans, it shows inexperience and a lack of confidence,” says Andrew Dumont, vice president of marketing for text-messaging company Tatango.
What do you guys think about wearing jeans to work? We’d love to hear your opinion on the current casual trend of dress at work! If Obama can pull it off, can’t anyone?
