Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is getting major kudos for helping lead his team to a perfect 4-0 record with its win over Tampa Bay Sunday.

But what he wears to the postgame news conference has become as newsworthy as what he does on the field. His preference for bright colors, crazy patterns, capri pants and fancy slippers have some questioning his vision.

This week, the QB wore a rather tame (for Newton) powder-blue suit with a pink bow tie:

Admittedly, this look was much better than the one he wore after last week’s game, a camo-pattern fiasco that drew arrest warrants from the Twitter fashion police:

But really, this wasn’t the worst look he’s worn in the past. Who could unsee those capri pants with the lavender jacket and black slippers from last year?

And lest you think the capris and slippers were a phase:

He even has a pair in gold:

Then there were those flower-pattern pants that reminded someone of grandmama’s couch:

For the men who think they can pull off Newton’s bold sartorial style, they can check out Newton’s clothing line, Made Cam Newton, which launched in 2013:

But at the end of the day, as long as he keeps winning, he can dress any way he wants. Perhaps we got it all wrong: Maybe it’s not the clothes that make the man, it’s the man that makes the clothes.
