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.
