As the intrigue surrounding the $8 khakis of San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh continues to grow, Bonobos is trying to get in on the fun and earn some free publicity. Well, it has worked.
Bonobos sent out an open letter to Harbaugh on Twitter, which offers the 49ers coach 10 free pairs of pants, his wife’s appreciation, and a $10,000 donation to charity of his choice in order to switch his khakis.
Here is the full text of the letter:
Dear Coach Harbaugh,
The sports media — our country’s vigilant fashion police — are alarmed. There is a growing public suspicion that you are housing a family of squirrels in the excess fabric of your khakis. These conditions are not humane — for you or the squirrels. There is also the issue of rabies.
Your wife is distressed. She is speaking to radio personalities, a profession vociferously averse to pant pleating. Your pant penalties have distracted the Internet from Miley Cirus. Miley Cirus is crying. And football? Football is crying, too. Picture a football crying, Coach.
We’re here to help. Our offer to you:
- 10 pairs of Bonobos’ better-fitting chinos on the house
- $10,000 to a charity of your choice (so you kind of have to accept)
- Your wife’s enduring appreciationWhat do we get out of it? Well duh. Bonobos is a menswear brand founded on better-fitting pants. This is our Super Bowl. To accept, email email@example.com.Go ‘Niners.Bonobos#GetHarbaughInBonobos
That is a pretty sweet offer that Harbaugh would be crazy to pass up.
Any man knows that his wife’s enduring appreciation should be enough to jump on the offer, but 10 free pairs of sweet pants and a $10,000 donation to charity is an absolute no-brainer.
