There's nothing like a sweet tradition--especially when you are 7 years old. For 57 years, the boys in the Gose family have been wearing the same store-bought sweater for their school photos.

STRATACACHE’s own Chuck Gose is making headlines with a sentimental story 61 years in the making.
It started back in Ohio in 1958, when Chuck Gose's dad wore the gray-knit pullover for his first-grade photo--followed by his uncles, who each wore the sweater, as it began to be known in family lore, when they were in first grade. Flash forward to 1982, when Chuck Gose was in first grade, and wore the pullover proudly. When the local Indiana paper wrote up the story, little Chuck said his son or daughter would continue the tradition.
So there was no question what Brady Gose would wear, even if his grandfather isn't around to see the family heirloom. “The sweater is a way for his memory to live on, not only to my son but also future generations,” Chuck Gose told HuffPost. “I know that he would be proud to see the grandson he never met carrying on the tradition.” As for Brady, even at 7 he knows what his child will be wearing when first grade rolls around!
