His shirt and sweatshirt with gray jeans are his uniform. Mark Zuckerberg has always boasted that he does not need to get to dress well to rub shoulders with investors, bankers or businessmen. Not only due to more casual style that reigns in Silicon Valley. After all he doesn’t need to impress anyone since he runs a social network that has more than 1.6 billion users worldwide, an audience that anyone would want to own.

However, during the trip to China in recent days, it has seen the entrepreneur with an unusual look into it. The CEO of Facebook has appeared in meetings with the Chinese Government and the China Development Forum in a sober dark gray suit and white shirt, a dress code much more serious. Why this change? Mashable is right on the key. The social network is blocked in China and the Mark knows this (this is a market with 720 million potential users), with and his trying to win the favor of the authorities to do business in this densely populated territory.

This is not the first time we’ve see the creator of Facebook in a suit. Zuckerberg has also made such an appearanceĀ  in a handful of other occasions, in September last year he wore a suit and tie to attend with his wife a state dinner at the White House in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping.
