SANTA CLARA -- Jim Harbaugh's wife Sarah called into 99.7 FM's "Fernando & Greg" to discuss her husband's fashion attire.
"I will not take the blame for his outfits," Sarah said on an impromptu call-in to the show.
Since taking over as 49ers coach in 2011, Jim Harbaugh's sideline and practice attire has consisted of a black sweatshirt, black cap and khaki pants whose pleats don't have his wife's endorsement.
"I've thrown them away many of times," Sarah said. "I've asked him: 'Please, pleats are gone. Wear the flat front.' He has a flattering body."
He's apparently so attached to those khakis that he found reinforcements while at the scouting combine in Indianapolis.
Said Sarah: "I threw them out and when he went to the combine, he found a Walmart. They were $8. $8!"
She's come to terms that he can't change his outfit at this point, that he won't even get a new car or change other routines. But her husband apparently told her that next year's he'll make a change if she wants him to so bad.
"I said next year would you please let me dress you or let someone else. He agreed to that."
