It seems that an Australian TV presenter wore the same cheap suit for a year and no-one noticed . He did it to highlight that women get judged more severely than men on what they wear.
I can well believe it; most studio-based TV shows seem to have the men alway in suits, but not always with ties, while the women wear what they like. IMHO this the easy way out and shows a lack of imagination on the part of the TV companies.

This is down to the fact that guys have only had boring colours that all go together for decades -- so we stop thinking about colour and, as the saying goes, "Use it or lose it."Taj wrote:I've gotten more than a few sideways looks from my wife, "That doesn't go together, better change it." I'm getting better at guessing, but can't out-think the color expert.
Colour theory is not all that hard to learn, and there are times when "breaking the rules" can be done to spectacular effect. Decent advice is available to the gals, and they get it hammered into them by their mothers anyway, so there's no reason we should not examine that advice and cherry-pick the best of it for ourselves.
Note: This advice is not for those who suffer from colour-blindness or those who, for whatever reason, cannot discern shade and tone.
