Cam Newton vs Russell Wilson: Fashion Rivalry

Today two of the NFL’s top quarterbacks go head-to-head in one of the most highly anticipated playoff games this post-season. Cam Newton’s Carolina Panthers and Russell Wilson’s Seattle Seahawks will battle it out to make it one step closer to Super Bowl 50.

We could break down all the plays, crunch some numbers and even chat with the pros to predict who will win the game. But here at Style Jock, we focus on more than stats; we’re all about the fashion. We believe when you look good, you play good, so we predict the most fashionable QB will win.

We’re going to matchup looks from Russell and Cam and pick who is the best dressed QB.

1st Quarter- Summertime Fashions

Russell: Who can forget this look from last April? Russell was DEF ready for vacation in this look. On his way to player camp in Hawaii, he was spotted wearing a floral blue and white top. While most of his teammates kept is casual is sweat suits, the QB opted for a look your dad wears to the beach.

Cam: Showing love for Carolina while riding a hooverboard, check out Cam covered in Charlotte Hornets gear. Perfectly coloured coordinated in teal and purple, Cam looks super casual and cool in this look. Plus the complexity of looking stylish and keeping your balance on a hooverboard is tough! 

TOUCHDOWN for Newton. 

2nd Quarter- Day Off Swag

Cam: Here’s Cam sitting courtside at an NBA game in a throwback Charlotte jersey and matching hat. We get it Cam, you love Carolina and the outfit is super dope. But the best part about this look, was Cam doing the "dab" that captivated social media.  

Russell: Rockstars are notorious wearing black and leather. So when Russell wore an all-black look and leather jacket on stage with pop star Taylor Swift during her tour stop in Seattle, he looked the part. The clean and simple look was super cool and plus it doesn’t hurt to have a hot girlfriend like Ciara by your side in matching threads. 

This one was close, but FIELD GOAL for Russell.  


3rd Quarter- Dressed to Impress at the ESPY's

Cam: Here’s Cam Newton at the 2011 ESPY's sporting a grey suit with baby blue tie and glasses. Channeling his inner Clark Kent, Newton kept it classic and clean. For 2011, when fashion wasn’t that big for athletes like it is now, this was a pretty good look for the budding QB. 

Russell: At the 2015 ESPY's this is the BEST Russell has ever looked. Rocking a purple Calvin Klein suit with black top and skinny tie, Wilson looked super chic. It’s hard to rock a bold coloured suit, but Russell pulled off the look perfectly and easily made the best dressed list for the night. Again Russell had the best accessory, his boo in a matching ensemble.


4th Quarter- Game Day

Russell: There really isn’t anything to compare when it comes to game day fashion between the two. Yes on game day, Russell looks professional in a suit, but he doesn’t add a fashionable touch and flair like Cam. Not to mention, in the past he use to show up to post game press conferences in a football jersey and camo hat. 

Cam: From foxtails to bow ties to sparkly loafers, Cam Newton has definitely transformed game day fashion in the NFL and everyone has noticed. Every week, people tune in to watch the Panthers on the field, but they're watching the post-game press conference to see what the star QB is going to wear. Newton also has his own collection called Made by Cam Collection from Belk, so fans can stay stylish like him. Cam wins this style battle against Russell NO DEBATE! Cam knows he is stylish and he knows he has the swag to pull off anything, 

He’s so stylish, the sports world isn’t only talking about his MVP season, they’re chatting about his fashions! With a fashion-forward leader like Cam, he’ll lead his team to victory and to Super Bowl 50. 


Take a look at some of Cam's killer looks from this season and what he had to say about his infamous fox tail.
