Teacher Wears Same Groovy Outfit In Yearbook Photo 40 Years Straight

In 1973, Dale Irby, a teacher at Prestonwood Elementary in Dallas, decided to wear a polyester shirt and coffee-colored sweater for school-picture day. Without realizing it, he wore the same outfit the following year. According to the Dallas News, Dale’s wife noticed the emerging trend and dared him to do it a third year. And then they figured, ‘Why stop?’ The tradition continued 40 years in total, until Dale and his outfit retired this year.
