We need pics of the "pimp suits", please!

Braves sweep Brewers, leave Milwaukee in style

"Eddie [Perez, bullpen coach] and I have been talking about this for a couple of years," said hitting coach Terry Pendleton, who got the idea when they would ride past Johnny Walker's men's store in downtown Milwaukee. "We wanted to do something different with Skipper [Cox], so we all came in here early yesterday, took some pictures with him.

"It was Skipper's idea to wear these home today. We were like, no way. He said, ‘We've got to wear them home.' So we're in ‘em."

Cox also told the coaches that the Braves had better win Wednesday or risk looking like clowns as they left the ballpark in their bright, long-tailed polyester suits and hats, including Kangols, porkpies and fedoras.

Every coach was dressed to the nines, including Pendleton in a lavender suit with a purple cap, purple shoes and a purple vest. Cox wore orange slacks with a jacket that featured wide orange-and-white pinstripes.
Anyone have pictures, or know where we can see some? We would LOVE to see this! :D

I was just thinking of sending this in to deadspin so they could put out a call for the pics, if there are any. Someone HAD to have seen this in the airport or somewhere and snapped a pic. Right? Even if I didn't know who it was I would not miss a photo op of old men strutting around in orange and purple zoot suits!

There must be pics out there. Wish we could have seen the players' faces when they walked out. Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
