Gym teacher wears the same outfit for picture day for 40 years

This retired gym teacher from Prestonwood Elementary school wore the same outfit for his yearbook photo for 40 years in a row. This picture day tradition began in 1973 when Dale Irby accidentally wore the same outfit he had worn the year before. Today, his brown sweater vest and collared shirt combo has earned him eternal internet fame. So much for a fashion faux pas.
