Teacher Wears the Same Outfit for Forty Years

Dale Irby, a school teacher from Dallas, Texas wore the same polyester shirt and vest for his yearbook  photo for 40 years.
What started as an accident became a running joke that never  got old. A sports teacher, Irby usually wore 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.

His wife dared him to repeat the outfit for a third year. Instead, Irby continued the joke for a further five years.
