Karl Stefanovic wears same suit for a year: sexism experiment

Karl Stefanovic has conducted an interesting experiment in front of our very eyes, each morning, for the past 12 months… and nobody even noticed. So, it can essentially be deemed a success. Clever guy.

Angered by the sexism directed at his female colleagues he decided to wear the same blue suit on air, two days in a row. Then three. And then, a month went by… nobody said a thing.

And now, a full year has passed – and he is still wearing the same cheap Burberry knock-off suit, every morning, on Channel Nine's 'Today' show.

No audience member has asked about it, says Karl.

Here he is a variety of shots wearing the saaaame suit:

He tells Fairfax Media:

"No one has noticed; no one gives a shit. But women, they wear the wrong colour and they get pulled up. They say the wrong thing and there's thousands of tweets written about them.

"Women are judged much more harshly and keenly for what they do, what they say and what they wear."
