Sarah Harbaugh kills it in great Dockers commercial (Video)

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.

Sarah Harbaugh DockersYou 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.

Jim Harbaugh’s wife wants him to ditch his $8 Walmart pleated pants


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh makes about $5 million per season. That would be enough money for most people to live comfortably, to say the least. However, a multimillion-dollar salary has not stopped Harbaugh from appreciating a good bargain when it comes to his wardrobe.

On Tuesday, Harbaugh’s wife Sarah called into 99.7 FM’s “Fernando & Greg Show” to discuss her husband’s sense of fashion — or lack thereof. Sarah wanted to make it clear that she is not responsible for his black sweater and khaki pants combo.

“I will not take the blame for his outfits,” she said, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. “I’ve thrown (his pants) away many of times. I’ve asked him: ‘Please, pleats are gone. Wear the flat front.’ He has a flattering body.”

Sarah sounds serious. In fact, she said she once threw out Jim’s pleated khaki pants before he traveled to Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine, but he was able to find a Walmart store and pick up some more.

“I threw them out and when he went to the combine, he found a Walmart,” Sarah said. “They were $8. $8!”

Harbaugh is apparently a man who is set in his ways, though Sarah said he has finally agreed to make a wardrobe change next season if it bothers her so much. Given the success the Niners have had since Harbaugh took over as head coach, fans probably don’t want him to change a thing.
