Clive Owen: Style

What is it about actor Clive Owen's style that makes the women swoon? Owen, one of the leading British actors today, has starred with a bevy of beautiful leading ladies, including Jennifer Aniston, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, and Kristin Scott Thomas. Some say the dark-haired, green-eyed actor's combination of swagger, looks, and charisma are reminiscent of a young Sean Connery. Owen's classic style screams manliness. If you'd like to learn some of Owen's tricks and try to achieve his style, read on.


  1. Buy a Giorgio Armani Suit: The first piece that should be in the wardrobe of any man desiring Clive Owen's style is a suit by Giorgio Armani. Owen has been seen pairing dark-colored Armani suits with lighter-colored shirts, leaving the top button or two undone, of course. Custom-made suits like this one retail for $3000 but sell off the rack for $1500 at sites like He favors ties with a little sheen to them, such as the one he wore at the Giorgio Armani Milan Fashion Week in February of 2010. If Armani's not in your budget, check out the Joseph Abboud suits at They're only a fraction of the cost, but, then again, they're just not Armani.


  1. Pick Up a Pair of Dark Jeans: When going for the casual look, Owen favors dark, straight-cut jeans. Ladies also favor this look, which accentuates a guy's buns and legs quite nicely. While Owen most likely didn't purchase his jeans at Banana Republic, they have some very nice men's jeans in the same style for $79.50, if your wallet's a bit lighter than Owen's.


  1. Get Your Own Leather Jacket: Owen likes leather jackets by Giorgio Armani, which you can purchase at Neiman Marcus for a mere $3125.00. The jacket helps to give him an air of cool, casual confidence. To achieve this look without the hefty price tag, you might want to opt for a Double Collar Lambskin Leather Blouson Jacket for $399 at St. Croix Shop instead.


  1. Wear the Right White Sneakers: Owen prefers white, low-top sneakers such as Lanvin Low Tops in which he was recently spotted stepping out. These shoes are versatile and can be worn for a variety of casual occasions. They can be yours for for $535 at Neiman Marcus. However, if you'd like to spend a bit less than that, Prada makes a nice alternative that sells for $49 at Sneakers2World.


  1. Don Some Aviator Sunglasses: Christian Dior sunglasses are Owen's favorite, as he sports a pair of 0049s in his latest movie, "Duplicity". While this style is being phased out by the manufacturer, you might be able to pick one up at for $230. If not, check ebay for some less-expensive alternative Dior models.


  1. Sport a Tag Heuer Watch: Owen admits to being a watch connoisseurr, confessing to owning Tag Heuer and Jaeger-LeCoultre in this article from the "Daily Mail". You can pick up a quality Tag Heuer timepiece for yourself at J.R., where they range in price from $850 to $7200. If your wallet isn't quite as fat as Owen's obviously is, Tag Heuer Replica Watches can be purchased for a fraction of the cost (about $145), and no one will be the wiser.


  1. Wear A Trilby Hat: Although he hasn't been photographed in one, Owen professes a love of wide-brimmed, 1940s-style Trilby hats. If you're so inclined, you can buy one for yourself at, where they sell for about $60 each.


You don't necessarily have to be a metrosexual to achieve Clive Owen's style. He says he doesn't keep a bathroom cabinet overflowing with products, preferring to stock it with simple shaving stuff. Owen claims he doesn't even moisturize, so men, you're off the hook if you want to be stylin' like Owen!
