Back in 2019, at “Letters Live,” Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke narrated a sombre letter about Henry Stewart’s grievances with men in suits, and why it was time to ban them.
“No woman in a burqa (or a hijab or a burkini) has ever done me any harm. But I was sacked (without explanation) by a man in a suit. Men in suits missold me pensions and endowments, costing me thousands of pounds. A man in a suit led us on a disastrous and illegal war. Men in suits led the banks and crashed the world economy. Other men in suits then increased the misery to millions through austerity. If we are to start telling people what to wear, maybe we should ban suits.”
