Super Bowl Sunday’s dress code is often relegated to sweaty jerseys, foam fingers, and body paint, but leave it to Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to make a chic new play on game-day style. Earlier this week, boarding a plane from Charlotte, North Carolina, bound for the big game in California, the star player flexed plenty of sartorial muscle as he traded in his team colors for Versace’s Barocco zebra-printed cropped jeans. With clear eyes, a full heart, and a toughened-up moto jacket thrown over his varsity prep sweater and tie, Newton could not lose.

While certainly a departure from the #1 jersey he sports on the field for his record-breaking passes and famous dabbing dances in the touchdown zone, the look was in fact another play from his fancy off-field pant game. Newton is known to slip into tailored camouflage-printed suiting to discuss his team’s 15-1 record; leather jogging pants are part of his off-duty style. At 6-foot-5 and 245 pounds, Newton is hardly afraid of taking fashion risks that men half his size may balk at. It’s that type of confidence that gets you to the big leagues—both of the NFL and fashion variety—and certainly wins our attention.
