Apple Bottom Grapes, coat with the fur

So this is from Hockey Day in Canada last month. The day’s festivities were hosted from Whitehorse, Yukon, and they included a WHL game between the Vancouver Giants and the Kamloops Blazers, numerous other hockey- and skating-related activities, and of course, Don Cherry in the Coach’s Corner. And it wouldn’t be a Don Cherry segment if it didn’t have some outrageous fashion, terrible character acting, and highly dubious relevance to anything. Seriously, the “plot” of these segments is so unimportant and unimpressive I don’t even remember what they were supposed to be talking about. I just take still shots from the television, folks. That’s all my brain can handle when it comes to Don Cherry.

But neither Don nor Ron disappointed with their sartorial choices. Don was decked out in some kind of Old Man of the Mountain fur coat and white hat and gloves, which is strangely an improvement of sorts over his usual fare in that the questionable tailoring and loud patterns don’t distract from, or even contribute to, the overall impact. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Ron’s M&M-colour-striped coat and wildly mismatched fur hat.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a Don Cherry segment without the requisite shouting and pointing.

What class, Grapes. What refinement.
