15. I can't prove it, but I think my class was one of the last ones to wear them
I went to a Catholic girls' high school (OH THE PSYCHOLOGICAL SCARS!)--my freshman year was '79-'80. We were told that, in addition to the hideous uniforms (pinstripe blue prison A-line dress for fall and spring, 1,000% navy blue polyester jumper for winter), we had to buy a gym suit (blue on the bottom, blue and white stripes--always the stripes!--on top, zip up the front). Then, when we started school, we found out that the PTB had decided we didn't have to buy them. Ninety-nine percent of us immediately switched to regular shorts and t-shirts, but one friend of mine was forced to wear the gym suit for ALL. FOUR. YEARS. Basically her parents figured they paid for it, she was gonna wear it. I felt SO sorry for her--and it was captured for posterity in a yearbook photo, no less.
