Karl Stefanovic, Australian TV host, says he wore same suit for a year in sexism experiment
Karl Stefanovic makes statement on sexism with his same suit experiment
The male co-host of an Australian TV program is finally getting some attention for his fashion sense. And that's his point.
He told Australia's Fairfax Media that while no one asked about his suit, people regularly commented about and criticized the outfits worn by co-host Lisa Wilkinson.
Stefanovic says, "I'm judged on my interviews, my appalling sense of humour - on how I do my job, basically. Whereas women are quite often judged on what they're wearing or how their hair is."
The Age newspaper says he's still wearing the same blue suit, and only Wilkinson and another Today colleague knew about his experiment.
"They often remark that it's getting a bit stinky," he said in the paper's weekend edition. "I'm hoping to get it into the dry cleaners at the end of the year."
