There’s no doubt, former NFL tight end and current CBS sports analyst Shannon Sharpe likes fashion. Whether or not it’s good fashion, that’s in the eye of the beholder but Sharpe certainly believes he’s dressed to impressed.

That sentiment holds pretty strong today considering Sharpe, who wore a purple crushed velvet suit, said he waited for two years to unleash the fashionable threads.

Please don’t adjust your TV set. The outfit I’m wearing today is the color and the fabric you think. So is the outfit a keeper? Had it for 2 yrs. I saw it and knew it was me.

The Twitterverse didn’t really seem to care for Sharpe’s clothing choice, though the football analyst didn’t really seem to mind suggesting the only people who need to like his outfit are the CBS executives and himself.

So why the long wait? Well, the last two seasons the Baltimore Ravens were broadcast on CBS and Sharpe, who played for the Ravens didn’t want to come across as biased with his purple suit.

He might have come across as a lot of things in such a suit, but I don’t think biased would’ve been atop the list.
