The GQ fashion police on Wednesday called out Cheezburger CEO Ben Huh as one of the 15 worst dressed men in tech, pointing to his frequent choice of ironic cat T-shirts.
Now, the man behind the Cheezburger empire is taking his campaign to the people — challenging GQ to what amounts to a fashion duel. In a video message, Huh says that he will dress in his very best geek duds and then also have GQ dress him in what they deem as cool. Then, in a blind test, they will let the community vote on who actually has the better fashion sense.
“My theory is that technologists, like me, and geeks, like many of our users, know how to dress. It is that we just really choose not to,” Huh says in the video.
