Kudos to this dude who wore the same shirt in every school photo for 7 years
The formative middle and high school years are a great time to learn what you’re passionate about. For Justin Taylor, one of those things was a Billabong t-shirt, which he wore for each of his school photos between sixth and twelfth grade.
Taylor, who’s now the Global Director of Digital Marketing at Nike Basketball, tweeted the highly fashionable photographic evidence on Monday.
Check out this surfer chic look, y’all:
“When I was a kid, being into surfing was super cool and what all the cool kids were into,” Taylor said via Twitter DM. “But the cool clothes to wear were expensive, so my parents went out and bought me a few things, including this shirt.”
Understandably, Taylor wanted his cool new shirt to be front and center, so he wore it for his sixth grade school photo. The next year, he coincidentally wore it again — so he just decided to keep the whole thing goin’ until senior year.
Now, the internet is enjoying both his commitment to the bit and his hairstyle journey throughout the years. (That gel!)
what an amazing decision for a 7th grader to make

You were doing the selfie-a-day idea before the selfie.

And, yes, the shirt still fits. Surfing’s the source, man … swear to god.
