Teacher wears same outfit for 40 years

EVERYBODY had one teacher who came to school dressed in exactly the same outfit every day.

You’d spend hours laughing with your friends about whether he bought five pairs of trousers, shirts and vests, one for every school day or whether he simply threw everything in the wash overnight only to be reworn the next day.

Or did he even wash his clothes at all?

Plus why, when he’d been free from the constraints of a compulsory school uniform since his late teens, did he choose to don a uniform of his own? What did he wear on weekends?

Well, a school teacher from Dallas, Texas has answered all these childhood questions. Dale Irby wore the same polyester shirt and vest for his yearbook photo for 40 years.
