CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP/KXAN) — Cam Newton is going with zebra stripes instead of a Panther theme on his trip to the Super Bowl.

Carolina’s star quarterback likes to do his own thing. Newton not only leads his team in dabs, sideline cheers and photo shoots, he apparently likes to dress for an occasion — or create one.

The Panthers arrived on the West Coast on Sunday. Newton created a stir by showing up to board the team bus in Charlotte, North Carolina, wearing Versace zebra-print pants.

The black and white striped pants, overlaid with an intricate gold pattern from hip to ankle, had Twitter abuzz in the hours leading up to the Panthers’ arrival in San Francisco for next Sunday’s Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos. Maybe Versace should consider Newton as a model because the $850 pants sold out over the weekend.
