Matthew McConaughey Is Mad For Plaid

12/13/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

It’s a rare thing to find Matthew McConaughey wearing a shirt, let alone a suit, but PEOPLE’s former Sexiest Man Alive indeed suited up – in brown and orange plaid, no less – to plug his latest film, We Are Marshall. And when the film is released on Dec. 22, you might recognize McConaughey’s ’70s-inspired threads. Why? Well, he sported those suits in the film. Like another actor who has been caught wearing his costumes off-screen, McConaughey explains that his clothes brought things into focus for him. “The plaid suit helped me find the character,” he told the press. “I loved it. Still wearing them!” Fair enough, but we think McConaughey might just have a flair for the ’70s. What do you think about McConaughey’s dated threads? And should actors still wear their costumes when filming wraps?

It looks too busy :( He could have done without the tie and/or the jacket and looked good.

I like Matthew but the pictures I have seen of him lately he is not looking very good. His face looks really skinny for some reason but I think he looks better with a fuller face but I still think he is cute.

Matthew looks good regardless of what he’s wearing. He takes his acting seriously as well.
