5. They were still worn into the early 70s at my grade school
By the time I got to junior high in the mid-70s, we'd switched to one-piece knit zip-up elastic-waist gym suits, blue and white striped on the top, blue on the bottom. We got sheets of letters, from which we cut out and ironed our names on the shorts.

Since it was knit, it was more comfortable, but it was still dorky as hell.
