Buy Om Malik’s Secondhand Clothes-Become a Tech Guru

Would you buy Om Malik’s second hand clothes? The online consignment shop, Twice thinks you would.

They are running a promotion right now to shop the Tech Guru’s closet full of things that range from Burberry London blazers (at a reduced price of $117) to wild Tommy Bahama Hawaiian shirts (for $36.00) PS-it looks like Hawaiian isn’t his style–the shirt still has the tag on it.

I’m not sure I’d call Om Malik the fashionplate of Silicon Valley…on second thought, there’s truly no male in Silicon Valley, that I can think of who I’d consider a fashionista…but Malik’s ventures sure are profitable. He’s a partner at True Ventures and the founder of GigaOm–a platform that “humanizes technology.” I remember watching some of his content online years ago when he first left Forbes to start up his own thing.

As of a recent check, 19 of the 96 items he’s pulled from his closet have sold out and the sale has only been open for about 24 hours.

Who knows–maybe his tech prowess will rub off on you in his former XL khakis.

Plus this is an interesting exercise in the branding of clothing–that someone “famous” has worn–and wants to now clear out of their closet. I’d bet it do fabulously if it was some movie star…
