DALLAS – Dale Irby, a Dallas teacher, is retiring after 40 years of teaching in Dallas and wearing the same outfit in his school portrait.

According to Irby, it started in the 70s when he realized he’d accidentally worn the same outfit two years in a row. His wife dared him to do it again.

After five years, Irby continued the trend which lasted four decades.

He wore the same polyester shirt and sweater vest until retiring this year.
