Jim Harbaugh's Wife Keeps Throwing Out His Pleated Khakis, He Keeps Buying More

Signature clothing is vital to a person's brand. Jim Harbaugh's frumpy pants are as recognizable as Superman's outside underwear. But at least one person in his house wishes they weren't:

Turns out even his wife thinks the pleats have to go. Sarah Harbaugh reportedly called Bay Area radio station 99.7 Now and said she hates her husband’s pleated pants. “I will not take the blame for his outfits,” she said.

“I’ve thrown them away many times. I’ve asked him, ‘Please, pleats are gone. Wear the flat front,’” according to a recording on the “Fernando and Greg” show. “He has a flattering body.”

His wife went on to say that even when she has thrown them out, Harbaugh buys new ones — from Walmart. “They were $8. $8!”

I would say this is a clear-cut case of someone having more money than sense, but at $8 per pair, she'd have to throw out about 20 before he'd be better off just buying the nice kind.

Update: We now have photographic proof of the Walmart purchases:
