Nicolas Cage’s exuberant acting has made him not just famous, but a meme. Whether it’s him screaming in The Wicker Man, or grinning a little too much in… well, most movies, he pops up from time to time on the front page of the Internet.
And, now Nic Cage has a brand new show on Netflix: The History of Swear Words. Got a favorite four-letter word? In 20 minutes, Cage will give you the history of it so you can share the details at Thanksgiving this year and horrify your mother.
But it turns out, he’s a man, a legend, a … style icon? Last year, this national treasure’s bubblegum pink jacket made him the star of Twitter for a day. After all who wouldn’t want the leather jacket? You could wear it to a roller derby race, a punk concert, or while supervising a group of Girl Scouts. So we took a trip down memory lane to remember all of his other awesomely eccentric looks.
So, lie back on your Nic Cage pillow and enjoy.
Just Some of Nic Cage’s Best Outfits
1. BRB, buying a whale stuffed animal and a hat to dress up our interview look.
2. So many jackets, so little time.
3. Our man is versatile AF. A suit with pointed shoes and a decanter of dark liquor are always in style.
4. See, we’re not the only ones who have those old Hot Topic sunglasses in the back of our closet!
5. Will we do a double-take for a Lisa Frank pink leather jacket? Yes.

6. Can we get a time machine? We just need to go back to 1988 for a night for no particular reason.
7. Why does Cage kinda look like our History 101 TA, though?
8. A chunky ring or five really pull together any outfit.
9. Is Cage slowly turning into Willy Wonka?
10. When Cage attempts to be understated.

16. If Nic Cage isn’t afraid of hidden treasure, he isn’t afraid of wearing white after Labor Day.
