Karl Stefanovic's Sexism Experiment: TV Show Host Wears Same Suit For A Year

On Saturday, Australian Today show host Karl Stefanovic revealed that he has been wearing the same blue Burberry knock-off suit to work everyday for a year to make a point about double standards for men and women.

He became frustrated when he noticed that viewers were criticizing his female colleagues — specifically co-host Lisa Wilkinson — on their appearance: what they wear and how their hair and makeup is done. This didn’t sit right with him, because he hadn’t ever experienced this type of criticism: Instead, viewers more appropriately gave him feedback on his performance at his job, which is interviewing and reporting.

So he decided to conduct an experiment: He would wear the same suit to work indefinitely — and after a year, not a single audience member has mentioned the fashion faux pas.
