What Wall Streeters Look Like When They're Not Wearing Their Uniforms

When Wall Street’s masters of the universe dress down, you can hardly recognise them. Let’s just say some of the biggest names on the Street don’t make the best fashion choices either — ill-fitting jeans, white sneakers, a tank-top undershirt, and one even rocked cut-off jean shorts in his younger days. 

In other words, given how the Masters Of The Universe dress when they’re not dressing up, it’s a really good thing that they have to wear their uniform. Use these as examples of what not to wear at your firm’s next casual Friday. 

Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein was photographed in baggy blue jeans, an oversized grey t-shirt and work boots doing Hurricane Sandy relief in the Rockaways. He looks like a completely different person.

Bill Ackman rocked a light-washed denim and some white sneakers when the Pershing Square team built a playground in Newark.

Jamie Dimon wore these dark washed jeans, red golf shirt and sneakers when the U.S. women's rowing team stopped by the bank. Also, is that a tank top undershirt he's wearing?

A dressed down David Einhorn is seen in a tighter fitting light wash jean.

The jeans... again.

Here's hedge fund god Ray Dalio in a fedora and a Hawaiian shirt. You would never know he was a billionaire hedge fund manager by looking at him here.

Now check out a young Dalio (pictured far left) rocking a pair of cut off jorts. It was the 70s.

Hedge funder John Griffin rocks khakis and black socks. That doesn't work.

Warren Buffett goes for the sweatshirt and turtle neck at the Allen & Co. Sun Valley Conference. He might be the only one who can pull it off, though.

KKR's Henry Kravis and James Robinson were looking casual at the Allen & Co. Sun Valley Conference last year. Robinson even buttoned his top button.
