Founder Ingvar Kamprad, who dropped off the Forbes billionaires list this year, says he buys his clothes at flea markets to save money.
“I don’t think I’m wearing anything that wasn’t bought at a flea market. It means that I want to set a good example,” he told Swedish channel TV4, according to The Guardian newspaper.
Kamprad’s three sons — Jonas, Mathias and Peter — were on Forbes’ 2016 billionaires list at No. 1694. Each man’s net worth: $1 billion.
