David G. Morgan/Bauer-Griffin

If anyone is qualified to design a beachwear line, it’s Matthew McConaughey. The perpetually shirtless actor has honed his knowledge of swim trunks, flip flops and bandanas over the years — and now he’s adding a surf-inspired line to his j.k livin T-shirt line. The line of swimwear and beach accoutrements will be available on his website starting this summer, according to his rep. Tell us: Will you buy Matthew’s clothing line?

NO !!!!!!!!

Can these “Stars” STOP trying to make even MORE money and producing crap. They have enough.

HE barely wears anything himself.


Jamie Montano on

He has a great sexy body. If I were a man I would buy his stuff..Dam he is really hot.

If they weren’t as wild as the pair that he has on in this picture I’m sure that I would purchase a couple of pairs for guy friends.

Marshall on

no….i wouldnt

Debbie on

Why would I buy anything from his line? So he gets richer? uuummmm….NOT!

Jonathan Bodack on

Matthew McConaughey does have a great physique! Maybe I’d buy his clothes if they were in my size, which is like medium-large!
PS I’m not gay!

jenn on

Not sure my hubby would, but I could try I’m sure he would look good in it!!

mjmcpeterson on

What does this Texas kid no about the ocean??

Jenna on

Not at all! I am sure my husband wouldn’t want anything from his line either – for the sheer statement of it. Just because you’re a star doesn’t mean you can design. And I think there are plenty of people who are pretty sick of this guy. He’s too full of himself.

samantha on

omg. i would :] he is so fine!!!<3333

Jill on

No, they are ugly and Matthew wouldn’t really wear those gay, colorful looking 80’s thing anyway. At least it wasn’t his own cologne line.

jon on


Bee on

Wow! Another actor becoming a designer,next dancer,singer Ya’ll know the triple threat….that every actor inspires to be….Oh well,the world support it WHY NOT…..RIGHT MATTHEW.Half of us are jealous I know I am.

Mandy on

It looks like Matthew has taken a kite that was flying on the beach and made shorts out of them. I absolutely do not like the shorts he has on in this picture.

My boyfriend definitely would not wear this style!

Mari on

Not in this lifetime!

Mary on

Not in this lifetime!!!

josh on

yeah i would.. hes hot

Caroline on

It depends on what they are going to look like, I’m not going to say no just because he is a star. Maybe they will be ugly, but they could be cool, too.

holly on

no way would i buy those shorts for my husband. they are ugly. professional designers can’t make swim wear different, how the heck is a two-bit actor going to? if it weren’t for his hot bod, he’d be a nobody. hone your acting skills matt. leave the designing to designers. it’s not like he’d actually design anything anyway, just approve what’s proposed to him.

prissy on

Hell ya I would. I would buy all of his stuff if he came in the clothing. He is hot and Seems like a southern gentleman that like to live life and have fun doin’ it can ya blame him?

Anonymous on

Enough with this! My goodness! I know this society is a capitalist one, and everyone wants to make money, but seriously! I never understood the hype with this man, anyway. He’s not that particularly attractive, he can’t act. He’s just a “celebrity” that works out all day. I dont’ understand why he’s famous.

me on

mjmc-just so you know, the Gulf of Mexico is on the southern border of Texas. Last I heard, that is part of the ocean.

me on

I would have a hard time choosing between him and Matt Damon. But, he needs to lose the shorts. They are way too wild looking.

Tim Mason on

What’s with all the ‘I hate rich people’ attitude? He has the right to launch a product just like any other person does, irrespective of whether or not he is rich!!! Get a life guy!

And as for the guy who put down’Im not gay’, yah right!!

Jan on

What makes any of you think he is truly designing any of the clothes. I’m sure he pays some one to do that for him and then puts his own name on the label.

Would I buy them for my husband. If the quality were right, sure.

kaila on

here in american samoa we have beautiful beaches and we all like to swim, so yes i would buy some swimming trunks from his clothing line for my father, brothers, and boyfriend. i would definetly support these stars who are trying to make more money because they also donate most of their money to various charity programs and that is a good enough reason of trying to make more money!


don’t abuse your popularity. if you have the talent go for it, if not..stick with acting and eventually retire a happy, contended man.

Mary on

I have no respect for a man that will not marry the women he impregnated.

You should be ashamed of yourself!!

VLJ on

Oh yes, life is good!

Ashley on

I love Matthew he is so hot! and I would buy any clothing he puts out. He is also a good actor too.

lexi on

uhhhhh…how bout no

Andy on

Usually I by board shorts on location in Santa Cruz or Hawaii and from sale racks, so it’s not likely I’d see them where I shop.

You don’t see many people on the beach dressed like that, unless they are overweight and pale white and think they look like Matthew by wearing them.

Sandra on

To M.J.McPherson–try a map quest on Galveston, Corpus Christi, South Padre Island and find them all in Texas. This Texas kid is just a whole lot smarter than most…he has a family to feed and is smart enough to be able to do it without surrendering most of his time and energy.

To All who posted negatives on his looks–If he ain’t hot, he’ll do til a hot ones comes along!

As the rest of the negative commenters, you’re jealous! He is really good lookin’ guy and smart enough to cash in on it before it goes. He’s a nice guy who could buy any big deal house he wanted but lives in an RV park! Doesn’t sound to me lik he is sold on himelf. Have you ever heard him talk about his coming baby?

Look, folks he’s just a guy using his gifts to try and make it through this life without losing his sense of humor or humility. He just does’t take himself too seriously. We could all use a little levity.

I’m edgin’ on toward 70, but I stll recognize a gorgeous, hot body hunk when I see one. Give Matthew a break.

jade on

I cannot stand this guy at all. Obnoxious and full of himself. I would not be caught dead wearing anything to do with him. Embarassing. I wish he was not in any movie. Or better put on a damn shirt fool. We really do not want to se anymore. Fool!

Mouring Favre on

MM has a foundation, people. The money he earns from the sales of items he has designed goes to help needy children……. He’s not a hollywood freakshow like Heidi Montag & the like….. he’s trying to raise money and do something good. Support him in this cause instead of complaining that he’s already famous.

CA loving AZ on

Yes. This guy lives in surf trunks. He knows what works & what doesn’t. Who cares if he makes money – it’s the american way. Go Texas!!!

melissa venturini on

damn, people are ignorant!!!! the man works for his $$$, so should YOU
Rock on MATT

j. browning on

hard to believe such a snot hails from texas, and only about 60 miles from my own hometown. i wouldn’t walk across the street to get something with his name on it if it were being given away…

will you print this? probably not.

heather bilyeu on

I might wear the jacket, but I definately would not wear the sunglasses!

Helen on

ummmm….NO!! Another actor prostituting himself for money!!! Isn’t he already rich???

Anonymous on

What a misserable life many of you must have!! To be so upset and.frustrated because so one is successfu!!! How sad! I admire people, like matthew that never stop working, that are talented and no matter how successful they are, they keep coming out with new peoject!

Karl on

I would buy them…would also love one hot sexy night with him out of those swim trunks!

Dawn on

These Stars are all taking away from designer whom are trying so hard to break into the business and do it as alive, these stars are just doing it for the moment.

paulette on

To all u haters out there that’s wat u all r doin hating. Mat is not only hot but he is a great actor and if he wants to lauch a swimwear line by all means go for it and he defenitely has my support.
