Why not denim? 49ers WR Michael Crabtree models most hideous vest ever (photo)

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree may be a fashionisto — or whatever the masculine version of “fashionista” is — but even if that’s the case, the fact that he tweeted the above photo where he is modeling one of the most hideous and garish vests I have ever seen does him no favors in preserving any notion that he has any sense in style.

As you can unfortunately see, the leather-esque — I can’t say whether that’s real leather or pleather (let’s be hones, probably pleather) — vest has so many things going wrong it’s hard to know where to begin. Perhaps the “King Crabtree” lettering is a nice place to start. Yeah, that’s definitely the worst part.

Hopefully, this affront to the last vestiges (get it?) of any hope that a leather vest deserves inclusion in any person’s wardrobe is a joke and that Crabtree is having fun modeling it and not wearing it because he believes it’s cool.

Not since Kids in the Hall alum Kevin McDonald’s guest spot on Seinfeld as a suitor of Elaine who wore an atrocious denim vest has that particular article of clothing been so off-putting.
