WATCH: Panthers great, soon-to-be HOFer Julius Peppers receives his Gold Jacket

Julius Peppers will be looking as good as gold in Canton next month.

The Carolina Panthers great just experienced the latest step in his journey to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as he received his Gold Jacket courtesy of Haggar Clothing Co.

Here’s the moment in which Peppers first broke out the threads:

Peppers was elected to enshrinement in his first year of eligibility. And it was an honor that was well-deserved—as the prolific pass rusher wrapped up his 17-year NFL career as a three-time first-team All-Pro, a three-time second-team All-Pro, a nine-time Pro Bowler and a member of the NFL’s 2000s and 2010s All-Decade teams.

10 of those 17 seasons were spent in Carolina, where the Wilson, N.C. native and University of North Carolina legend established himself as one of the greatest players in Panthers history. Peppers amassed a franchise-leading 97.0 sacks, six interceptions, 34 forced fumbles and 10 fumble recoveries over his two stints in the black and blue.

Now, when Aug. 3 comes around, he’ll be wearing that gold.
