CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A North Carolina man has recreated Cam Newton’s famous designer pants in honor of the Carolina Panthers.

Charlotte resident Marcus Gladden posted an image of himself wearing a recreation of the pants to Facebook shortly before the Super Bowl.

“Who wore them better?!?” he wrote on Facebook, joking about Newton’s fashion. “Standing by your QB during his worst outfit choice $PRICELESS!!!”

Newton wore the $849 Versace pants as he boarded the flight last weekend to California for Super Bowl 50.

But Gladden’s recreation only cost about $20, according to his Facebook post.

The Panthers take on the Broncos for Super Bowl 50 at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif. It’s the first time the Panthers have been to the Super Bowl since 2004.
