19 Photos Of Karl Stefanovic Wearing The Same Suit Every Day To Make A Point About Sexism

Karl Stefanovic, the co-host of one of Australia’s most-watched TV programs, has been wearing the same suit for a year.

The Today show host did it to make a point about how much appearances matter for women in the TV industry. That nobody noticed was stunning.

“Women are judged much more harshly and keenly for what they do, what they say and what they wear,” Stefanovic said.

He sure made the point. The project has made headlines around the world.

We’ve been back through some of the Nine archives to find screengrabs of him in the well-worn Burberry knock-off suit, interviewing everyone from Katy Perry to Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Grumpy Cat.
