If the Giants ban culturally-insensitive apparel, you won't be able to wear this Chanel Metiers d'Art ensemble to AT&amp;T park. But you really shouldn't wear it anyway. Image via <a href="http://racked.com/archives/2013/12/11/the-15-most-dallas-mom

We can't quite picture the baseball fan who stands in front of the mirror and thinks, "Yeah, I should totally wear a fake headdress to the game tonight." But those people exist. And after a kerfuffle at AT&T Park involving fans sporting fake headdresses for Native American Heritage night, the San Francisco Giants are considering dress code changes to address culturally insensitive signs and articles of clothing.

Right now, it's just an idea. Giants senior vice president Staci Slaughter told USA TODAY Sports, "I don't want to overstate where we are. We haven't finalized the language." If the organization adopts the change, it would be a leading the way in the sports industry. With any luck, the fashion world would take a few pointers, too.
