Teacher Wears Same Outfit For 40 Years [Photos]

A teacher in Dallas, Dale Irby, accidentally wore the same outfit two years in a row for year book pictures. His wife dared him to wear it again for a third year. He one upped her and did it for another five. Then he thought, “Why stop there?” So, AWESOMELY, 40 years later, we got the same outfit in yearbook pictures. Check them out!

From news.com.au:

Irby said what started off as an accident became a running joke that never got old.

A sports teacher, Irby usually wore athletic clothes suitable for exercise.

He picked the vest and shirt combination in order to look presentable for his first yearbook photo in 1973 and accidentally repeated the outfit the following year.

“I was so embarrassed when I got the school pictures back that second year and realised I had worn the very same thing as the first year,” he told the Dallas Morning News.

Irby’s wife, Cathy dared him to repeat the outfit for a third year. In the spirit of one-upmanship Irby continued the joke for a further five years, after which he thought “why stop?”

Irby retired after 40 years.  No report on if his outfit is now retired as well.

Here’s the photos.
