This Awesome Gym Teacher Wore The Same "Picture Day" Outfit For 40 Years

It all started back in 1973 when gym teacher Dale Irby posed for his first teacher portrait. One year later, he wore the exact same outfit for picture day. Once he realized the fluke, he decided to turn it into a funny tradition.

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

After Irby overcame the initial embarrassment, he decided the only logical thing to do was to keep wearing the exact same thing for every single teacher portrait. He wore the same sweater vest, checked shirt, and glasses for 40 years.

“After five pictures,” he says, “it was like: ‘Why stop?’” And so he kept repeating the winning combination, right up until he retired in 2013.

Needless to say, Irby was always everyone's favorite gym teacher.
