It’s not only lame websites like Kissing Suzy Kolber that pulled uninspired April Fools’ Day stunts this year. Actual NFL teams are in the act as well. For example, the 49ers jokingly announced the launch of a Jim Harbaugh clothing line.
With a wardrobe that stands the test of time, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh is bringing his attire to the masses by launching his own clothing line, the Jim Harbaugh Collection.
A trendsetter in the coaching profession, Harbaugh has inspired fans with a unique sideline look that he carries over into all facets of his life. Whether the 2011 AP Coach of the Year is stalking the sidelines of Candlestick Park or enjoying a round of golf at Pebble Beach, chances are he’ll be dawning his black fleece, khaki pants and 49ers black cap.
“I probably save about 20 minutes per day,” Harbaugh said about limiting his daily clothing decisions. “I’ve cut down a lot of drag.”
After being featured in fashion magazines such as GQ and Vogue, Harbaugh is well known for his multi-functional style.
In addition to his Sideline Collection, Harbaugh is also launching a Golf Collection, Casual Collection and Formal Collection, in which Harbaugh sports a blue-collar shirt underneath his fleece, in addition to complementing the ensemble with black dress shoes.
Not bad. I would have liked to see a “Who Got A More Relaxed Fit Than Us?” tagline for the ad. And how is Harbs’ trademark red pen not incorporated in any way. It’s as though they think uptight white guys don’t like to accessorize.
