    When Gabriel Jacobs first began coding back in the 3G days of 2008, the ninth grader at New York City's Dalton School didn't tell his friends. He was too embarrassed. Staying up late teaching oneself how to code from YouTube videos was the opposite of cool. After all, Apple' iTunes App Store had just launched and celebrity-status billionaires like Instagram's Kevin Systrom and Snapchat's Evan Spiegel didn't yet exist.

    In the increasingly crowded world of flashy activist hedge fund managers, Patrick Walsh, 39, plays against type. The founder of the $150 million PW Partners in Chicago wasn't schooled at Wharton and has no Ivy League pedigree or M.B.A. He didn't apprentice with hedge fund greats like Carl Icahn, Dan Loeb or Bill Ackman, and he eschews the public spats that make activists a favorite of the news media. He's got no public relations handler or even an in-house trader to execute his stock moves.

So it must come as a shock to global fashionistas that the most coveted item in recent memory costs a mere $109 and comes from the rugged New England town of Freeport, Maine rather than an atelier in Paris or Milan.
