Jim Harbaugh’s love of his khaki pleated pants is pretty well known.
The guy is like Superman in that his closet must be filled with nothing but long-sleeved 49ers undershirts and khakis, because that’s all he ever seems to wear. And that has not sat well with his wife, Sarah.
You may recall that in January, Sarah called up a Bay Area radio station to complain about Jim’s pleated khakis habit. She even said that she threw away all of his pants and he still managed to find them at a Walmart while he was in Indianapolis for the combine. A couple of days later, Dockers got in on the fun and sent Jim a care package. Now they’ve gone a step further and wrangled Sarah for a commercial.
In the commercial, Sarah films a PSA-style message about stopping “dad pants” and urges people to get Dockers flat front pants. I love the commercial. I also, embarrassingly, must admit that I still have some pleated pants from years ago and probably could stand to get some new flat front pants. With Sarah’s encouragement, I might have to get some.
