Dress like a Mac

I love Apple’s latest television ads in which Justin Long is the cool and casual personification of the Mac. His look can easily be summarized as:

  • Smart, but approachable
  • Informal and casual but not slovenly
  • A simple color palette of cool blues and greys
  • Minimal, with no visible logos or slogans

If you want to truly show your devotion (obsession) to your beloved Macintosh, here’s how and where to get the look:

The basic outfit

Justin most often wears an unassuming outfit that consists of a solid colored hoodie, plain t-shirt, slightly-distressed jeans, and simple slip-on shoes:

  1. Zip Front Navy Hoodie
    BDG at Urban Outfitters
    $39.99

  2. Jersey Slate T-Shirt
    American Apparel
    $15.00

  3. Distressed Blue Jeans
    Levi’s at Urban Outfitters
    $89.99

  4. Classic Blue Slip-on Shoes
    Vans at Hot Topic
    $12.99

Variations

T-Shirt Colors

Shirts & Sweaters

Shoes

Shoe variations

Tips to complete the look

To finish your Mac makeover, there’s a few more things to do:

  • Stand with your hands in your pockets a lot, but keep the thumbs out

  • Avoid jewelry and extra decoration. Minimal and simple is the Apple way

  • If you’re a guy, facial hair is okay, but keep it trimmed and neat

  • Paint your walls white

  • Smirk

Ladies?

I apologize, I don’t know a whole lot about women’s clothing, and it seems like Apple doesn’t either. Any suggestions?

    Well, it finally happens. Hackers have become sufficiently shallow and materialistic to allow a computer commercial to influence their attire. Hello mainstream fluff.

    I knew Mac users could be real fanboys but at least in 1984 they didn’t go around wearing orange shorts and white tank tops.

    It’s a casual weekend whatever goes garb. If it’s next to the bed in the morning it’s still fair game. For work add a pressed dress shirt because jeans are good for at least a week being hardy material and you have the average tech IT workday outfit. As for a shave, that seems totally optional at all times barring keeping it looking neat. Successfully goes against the fake it till you make it concept with wearing smart or smart casual at all times. A nice enough look but depends on your personality and goals.

    I think that this series of ads has hurt the Mac more than helped it. The Mac guy comes off as smug, obnoxious, and superior. The PC guy actually seems like the nicer person. And while of course Windows is a sea of malware and the Mac commercials are perfectly correct in making that point, the cute digital camera from Japan ad was just stupid. No company in Japan or elsewhere is going to ship a new camera that doesn’t work flawlessly on Windows, as this would kill sales. The TV audience are not idiots.

    Now, the Mac guy does represent the Mac the way Mac users think of themselves, so if the purpose of the ads is just to amuse existing Mac users I suppose that they work.

    Oh, and the Mac guy wears Levis? How old-fashioned.

    What a nice analysis. I’ve recently gotten into Macs again after what I could call a long hiatus, and through the joy of my MacBook Pro, it’s been really pleasant to watch these commercials… as uncomfortable on some level as they make me, hehe. I suppose that’s because I really like neon colors and I was expecting the Mac guy to have a tie-dye, hippie shirt!

    The PC guy comes off as kind of helpless and sad, I do feel sorry for him and hope he feels better about himself too.

    But if these commercials are designed to elicit reaction, they have.

    Yeah, I agree they should have made the PC guy the swarmy, full-of-it, know-it-all – you know you’re typical IT department Nazi – who tells you they don’t support Macs.

    Say what you will about PCS and compatibility – but every digicam I have touched recently from Japan that captures movies records those movies to flash memory in the Quicktime format – which is Apple’s multimedia format, not Microsofts.

    And in 20+ years of computing I have never had to install anti-virus software or worry about adware or . . . or other such nonsense – but then again I don’t use PCs.

    Now, I like this guys clothes but I can’t can’t get over the fact that they miscast the characters of these videos. Dress the creative-type middle age fat guy (like me) in thse trendy wanna be clothes and let the skinny twerp represent the forces of darkness.

    The above is indeed the way to dress if you want to ‘get the Mac look’ — if you’re male. For females, however, I recommend a slightly different tactic: emulating Macbooks. Something all white or all black, skintight, and shiny. Since glass and transparent plastic are both notoriously inflexible, I recommend glossy leather for that authentic “Apple-like” look. Possibly with a section in the shape of the Apple logo cut out from the midriff.

    Presumably once you start dressing like a Mac you are only allowed to go out with a small percentage of your former friends, and must cite compatibility issues with the rest?

    And I’m glad they picked Justin Long, white, middle class, fairly wealthy.

    PC’s on the other hand, are much more… how should I put this… PC? They come in all colours, shapes and sizes, and yeah, there’s some unholy s**t that comes with them, but hey! Let he who is without bugs cast the first floppy.

    have you ever watched an infinity commercial?

    obviously, if you are getting frazzled by the mac/pc “debate” then you haven’t. the cars are nice but at the very least playboy managed to sell concept with tits and ass, like the song says.

    it’s called “high concept” and i think everyone in the room should be used to it by now. if you are able to rip a CD, use bittorrent or run faster than the best buy security guard then you should own up.

    who is so insecure that a commercial can so deleteriously affect one’s self esteem?

    i love me some brand identification, but come on!

    This is so funny… and unnerving. I hadn’t really thought about it before, but that’s me almost to a tee. Its not really a social thing… I think they just sort of captured the sensibility of my demographic. Its weird looking at this in terms of a style, because (for me anyway) its really an anti-style: 1) Yeah, muted colors, no logos. I am not a billboard or a neon sign. 2) Clothes must be comfortably well fitting. If I wanted to wear a tent, I would. Lots of stuff from American Apparel- its well-made, they don’t do size inflation, and its sweatshop free. 3) Levi’s – definitely. But NOT the $90 ones. Levi’s are classics, and last forever. Generally, Levi 527s ($20-30), because pants just sit better at the hips, but having the crotch between your ankles looks looks stupid and makes you waddle like a penguin. They make them distressed if that’s your thing. 4. Shoes. Vans and monochrome converse is pretty much right. But not from hot topic. I wouldn’t set foot in there.

    As for the macgirl… oh, I can tell you about her…: Definitely not that girl with the sweatshirt.

    Clean and stylish, but never flashy or overtly sexual. Generally the same basic color palate, except in winter/at night, a colorful scarf. Jewelery: a simple pair of earrings. Maybe a bracelet. No obvious makeup. Hair is clean and brushed but not colored or curled or anything like that. May wear a headband. Skirts to a bit above the knee, shorts, or jeans. Carry’s a nice bag, NOT a purse. Shoes: again, vans or low-top converse, or in spring/summer those little slip-ons. Does not wear heels or flip-flops. Enjoys taking public transit even though she has a car. Likes going to museums, hiking. When she’s drunk, she speaks unintelligible french.

    If you don’t care about image, wear that. That set of clothes has no image and has been worn since the early 1990s. Nothing clothes. Nice, but say absolutely nothing about you, and even more worrying if you think that they do.

    Don’t wear it if you want to ‘be’ something as it has nothing.

    The same $89 jeans at Urban Outfitters are often on sale at Sears for $29. A zip-up hoodie (when exactly did “hooded sweatshirts” become “hoodies” anyway?) can be found at Target for about $12, as well as fake Vans that are probably closer to $15 than the real ones. Grey t-shirts, same…they come in packs of 3 for $7 or so.

    In any case, this Mac v. pc war is silly. If this was “How to dress like the Geico cavemen.” nobody would be arguing over whether Progressive or State Farm were better than Geico.

    “Hooded Sweatshirts” have been “hoodies” since I was in 7th grade (I’m a Senior now). And as far as the clothes go, why do they have to be Levis? You can get some off brand jeans that look exactly the same for $25. Zip-up hoodies? Those can be found for $15-$20 easy. Grey t-shirt, yep, 3 pac for $7, and the shoes… not sure, don’t own any slip on Vans (or any shoes that cost less that $30)

    This is silly… but kinda fun.

    Who cares what he wears, Justin Long is hot. If he wore a suit, or even a dress, he would still make me want to buy a Mac. Well I already have one, but you know what I mean.

    I would like to comment quickly on one line of text in the discription:

    Avoid jewelry and extra decoration. Minimal and simple is the Apple way

    Something about Apple computers just doesn’t scream “minimal and simple” to me. Alright, simple to use, yes. Mnimal? I don’t think so. Short of alienware you will find no flashier computers (and personal modifications, of cource).

    Still, the rest of it hit the nail right on the head.

    You know, those commercials stopped me buying a Mac for a long time.

    I happen to NEED to do spreadsheets and business stuff, because, well, I run my own business… and I was left with the impression that Macs weren’t really for that.

    Fortunately, about 2 weeks ago, I got a little Mac Mini because it was in stock there and then the day I needed a computer (a hard disk had died.)

    Actually, I’m finding the Apple experience far better than the Windows one… but the thing I find amazing is the Apple FanBoy claims that “It’s as cheap as PC.”

    No, it isn’t. Macs are more expensive, but that’s OK because they’re better….

    HOWEVER, I could have bought 2 Windows machines, or three Ubuntu ones for the what I ended up paying for my Mac Mini.

    Oh, and I am a convert – my next laptop will be a MacBook…

    What Justin Long wears in the Mac ad is OK, but I probably wouldn’t wear it–and I’m a senior in high school. First, I don’t like the shoes at all. I would go somewhere else for the Levi’s ($90, are you KIDDING?!) the shirt and hoodie are OK if you don’t feel too great that day.

    There’s not enough color. It’s really drab. BUT, I prefer the Mac–a friend convinced me to try one again after the nightmares I had in middle school with them. I find them to be much better (this old PowerBook is even better). But I’ll be buying my first Mac this summer (a MBP) for college. Yeah, I’ll need a few Windows-only programs, but now that Macs run both (even 3D thru Parallels now), I’ll stick with the,

    Found this while surfing, and I’m intrigued by the “casual but not slovenly” description for the Mac guy. Actually, his outfit strikes me as rather expensive, all things considered, but I suppose it could be more costly. And I tend to be more of a windows person…

    Have not actually seen the original ad but looks like the current ads aren’t straying too far away from the same look. It is casual and unassuming in a cool way, but as with all things Mac, not exactly the cheapest look you can have. :)

    I found this blog post via Google, and I must say — I’m amusedly impressed! ((Actually, I’m starting to love the whole of LifeClever, actually … It’s pretty awesome overall!))

    Even though ‘Mac’s fashion sense totally not my style, I’ve always admired it! It’s a bunch of styles combined, really … Crisp, casual, preppy, hipsterish, and kinda indie all at once.

    Very, very fun post. Nice job, LifeClever!

    The saleman told me from whom I bought the shredder. All office shredders roll on casters for convenient sharing among offices. Every shredder model has a 10-year warranty on cutting heads and can take staples and paper clips which saves office stationary too.

    It depends of the color of the skin of an individual what color to wear. However blue,black and white are almost always good.

    Sunny face + black hair gives the greatest number of color combination posible

    @noah – You have said – $90 for a pair of Levis?!

    I agree with that. Sneakers aren’t the best option in this case and i think that black leather shoes would be much better than these blue ones.

    Fools! The wardrobe is chosen, with great emphasis, placed on what is TELEGENIC. Solids, dark colors, neutrals and simple styles are safe. Other considerations are things like the set/background (i.e. the subject may want to “pop” off the screen so they use colors that contrast with the surroundings — negative space), the target audience (i.e. don’t have Glen Beck in a suit trying to appeal to green hippies wearing hemp), etc.
