    The New York Times recently recognized Silicon Valley’s best-dressed women, while GQ gave 15 execs the dubious honor of being designated the area's worst-dressed men. Bloomberg Businessweek chimes in with a look at some of the valley’s most-stylish men—techies who have defied the industry's bland informality. (Except Mark Zuckerberg, who's made an art of it.) This is a longer list than we expected.

    The 35-year-old creator of Twitter and mobile-payments company Square was voted one of GQ’s most stylish men this year. That's GQ Australia, but still!

    "The three-piece suit has become sort of my trademark,” Google’s (GOOG) vice president and chief Internet evangelist told Esquire. “It has several benefits: You may be overdressed on some occasions, but you can manage to fit into a huge range of circumstances.”

    Box's co-founder has developed his own signature style—bright tennis shoes, sport coat, jeans—but it's the electrical-socket 'fro that gets all the attention.

    The real-life Tony Stark—CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors (TSLA) and co-founder of PayPal (EBAY)—owns the open-shirt-collar-plus-sport-jacket look. He owes his wardrobe in part to personal shopper Martin Kedzior, although reps say Kedzior works more to save time than to save Musk from fashion disaster.

    What Apple's (AAPL) T-shirt-loving design chief lacks in sartorial flash—this is, after all, the house that Steve Jobs built—he makes up for with a well-sculpted physique and with perfectly manicured, grizzled stubble that looks as if it could have been designed by Apple.

    As co-founder and CEO of Yelp (YELP), Stoppelman cuts a dapper figure in tie-less suits, but his trademark curls do most of the work.

    Once clean-cut and barefaced, the founding developer of WordPress now looks like a cross between Jesus Christ and Kris Kristofferson. One blogger commented that at the 2008 Crunchies, an awards ceremony for internet startups, Mullenweg "at least, wore a tie" and said that "compared to the other winners, Matt was Jude Law."

    However informal, Zuck's gray T-shirt and hoodie-and-jeans combo is iconic, and he's stuck to it with Lagerfeldian persistence. Zuckerberg did clean up nicely for his wedding in May and for the G8 Summit in 2011. (Here are other occasions on which he deigned to wear a jacket.)
