Vintage Fashion Failed Cam Newton Badly


We get it, fashion is extremely subjective. But the vintage fashion Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Cam Newton wore on Sunday, left us scratching our heads. Social media is rewarding professional athletes for taking chances with what they wear. Take a look at some of the crazier outfits OKC Thunder guard Russell Westbrook wears into an arena. However, Mr. Newton, what were you thinking with the hat and bowtie? The trend towards old-fashioned outfits from the times of yore is just ridiculous and out of pocket. Why would one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL want to look like a guy who stands outside a shop with a spinning red, white and blue pole singing show tunes?

Newton’s flair for fashion has taken on a life of its own. The Panthers’ weekly post-game press conferences have become a runaway show for the eccentric quaterback. We’re all for self-expression, but the the fashion choices of Cam Newton don’t make sense. USA Today describes Newton’s fashion as, “Cam Newton has so much swagger. The…quarterback showed up to his press conferences in Carolina like he was ready to attend the MET Gala (which he has done a number of times).”

Fashion for a New Singing Career

Our own F&TS correspondent Dick Burns tried to get an exclusive with Newton to talk about the Panthers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers and his chat with Colin Kaepernick at midfield. Unfortunately, Burns was told Newton had left the building to meet up with Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Peyton Manning, and the Tonight Show Ragtime Gals to practice their rendition of “One Dance” by Drake. Hats are the signature item of Cam Newton’s closet, But a fashionable fedora is a lot more stylish than Sunday’s choice. Newton should retire the straw hat look immediately.
