Episode 12: Giving up Changing Our Clothes

For the last two weeks we have not changed our clothes. Need I say more? How about, spoiler alert, one of us would recommend this and the other was mortified.



Middle Ages
Middle Ages Peasants
Inferring that they wore the same thing alot since they had to make it themselves, the clothes had to be durable, and they had no time and likley no money to buy a variety of clothes.
Albert Einstein

Debunked -- it is not true that he wore the same clothes all the time. Do a quick google search. (ref)
Dolly Parton
On the other hand, someone with lots of money, can make a decision to never wear the same thing twice. Never wears the same thing twice. (ref)
Paul Reubens

Fictional character Pee-wee Herman, portrayed by actor Paul Reubens, wears a grey suit, red bowtie and red lipstick.(ref)

Steve Jobs
“Unlike most corporate executives, who wear suits and ties, Jobs was committed to his chosen uniform of a black mock turtleneck, blue jeans and New Balance sneakers.” (ref)
Always wear sunglasses. He has glaucoma and this makes his eyes light sensitive. (ref)

Dale Irby
Wore the same shirt and sweater each year for 40 years in the yearbook photos.
Mark Zuckerberg
Grey T-shirt.(ref)
Matilda Kahl
Wore the same outfit to work every day for three year to reduce her stress. (ref)
Karl Stefanovic
Wore a navy blue "cheap Burberry knockoff" – every day for a year. No audience members or fashion commentators commented about it. He was angered by the sexism he saw being heaped upon his female colleagues – and attempts to downplay it.
