Hello and welcome to Sam Claflin Source, a fansite dedicated to the very talented actor Sam Claflin and his fans. We aim to bring you all the latest news, photos and information on Sam. Thank you for visiting and we hope to see you again very soon!

The father of two—and face of DKNY—fills us in on how he’s getting dressed these days.

Sam Claflin is keeping busy these days. Aside from his movie career—he played the famously handsome Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise and stars in the upcoming crime thriller The Corrupted, slated for release in 2019—he’s the face of DKNY’s spring fashion campaign. Oh, and the 31-year-old Englishman is also a father of two, which means balancing time in front of the camera with all the responsibilities of being a young dad.

We managed to get a few free moments while Claflin’s on set in the UK to discuss how having kids changed his approach to style, what it’s like to rep for a New York brand when you were born in Ipswich, and the ever-changing nature of the fashion world.

He’s English, but he’s got a soft spot for New York.

I love New York as a city; I’ve visited a few times now. It’s a lot like London in terms of accepting you for who you are and the way you dress. I love getting inspiration from street style whilst I’m there. I’m lucky enough to work all over the world, so although I’m an Englishman at heart, my style incorporates the places I love too.

Acting changed the way he approaches getting dressed.

I’m not sure how much acting has changed my personal style, but with my job I do have to prep a lot more now. I like to get my outfits ready the night before, so I can just get up and go, whether it’s filming or going out with my friends or family. I suspect when I first started acting there were some fashion mistakes—but that’s all part of the journey.

Coming to NYC was part of why he teamed up with DKNY.

DKNY was always a label I had loved. When the opportunity came up to collaborate with them—especially the opportunity to shoot on the streets of a city I loved—I leapt at it!

He knows the power of suiting up.

I am really lucky with where I am in my career. I have the chance to work on some incredible projects with really interesting people. I do have to go to more formal events a lot more now, so I love a simple yet classic dark suit in a navy or charcoal grey.

Being a dad means dressing for three.

When you have children, you have three people to get dressed rather than one. I’m lucky my wife is so great at looking after that side whilst I’m away filming. Since I’ve had children, I’ve gone for more of a no-fuss approach with style, and ensured I’m comfortable so I can run around and play with my kids. It’s usually a lot of oversized tees, jeans, and sneakers.

He’s made mistakes, style-wise. But none that he wants to cop to specifically.

No moments spring to mind. I think everyone has that feeling when they see an old photo of, “How did I think that was cool?” But that’s just the nature of fashion, and why I now prefer to stick to cool and classic brands. [Source]
