Kyle Shanahan

What Shanahan comically told wife about Kristin Juszczyk jacket request

Kristin Juszczyk, the wife of 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, has become the talk of the fashion world in recent weeks, with her one-of-a-kind jackets being worn by celebrities Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner during NFL playoff games.

Kristin Juszczyk’s creative skills have gained so much attention that even 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan was asked by reporters Tuesday for his take on the matter. He noted that he hadn't yet asked her for a custom jacket, though a member of his family has.

“No, I haven’t, but my wife actually was talking about that.” Shanahan said. “I told her I don’t have a number, so you better not wear that. That would be so embarrassing for us.

"She’s awesome, and she does that stuff all the time. My daughter likes to make clothes, and she’s like 7 years old, so she’s always sending her [Kristin] stuff, too, that they try to make, so it’s awesome.”

While Kristin Juszczyk’s seamstress skills have been known to 49ers fans for quite some time, her popularity has exploded since Swift rocked a custom Travis Kelce jacket for the Kansas City Chiefs' AFC wild-card round game against the Miami Dolphins this past weekend.

As both the Chiefs and the 49ers gear up for big-time playoff games this coming weekend, all eyes not only will be on what Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, Deebo Samuel and Brock Purdy do on the field but also what they and their significant others are wearing before, during and after the game.

The 49ers are set to square off against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday at Levi’s Stadium in an NFL-record 10th playoff meeting between the teams. San Francisco has won the last four playoff matchups against Green Bay and is looking to advance to a second consecutive NFC Championship Game.
