Most NFL coaches aren’t exactly style icons (see: every NFL coach; Rex Ryan). Of course, it’s not like they need to be, either. But today, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh found his curious fashion sense come under question when his wife outed him as a Walmart shopper, where he buys his iconic $8 pleated khakis.
“I will not take the blame for his outfits,” Sarah [Harbaugh’s wife] told San Francisco’s 99.7 NOW . “I’ve thrown them away many of times. I’ve asked him ‘Please, pleats are gone. Wear the flat front.’ He has a flattering body.”

Harbaugh has a history of frugality, as evidenced by his favorite sweatshirt. When he was hired by the 49ers, he simply replaced the Stanford logo on its breast with a 49ers logo. Indeed, Harbaugh wears his black-sweater-black-hat-pleated-khakis amalgamation so much that it “inspired” a “clothing line.”
