Jason Bourne – Super Spy or Style Icon?
It’s been 10 years since Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) walked away from the agency that trained him to become a deadly weapon. But now Bourne is back, with both more skills and style than ever before. Jason Bourne is the latest instalment in the Bourne movie series. An action packed thriller that has already been a huge success at the box office.
Mainline Menswear is putting a twist on the film, and looking at what Bourne wears. His outfit plays a part in him being a hugely successful secret agent, so here’s how to get the Jason Bourne look.
Throughout the film Bourne is rarely seen without his leather jacket. It’s a wardrobe staple for any man, super spy or not. Bourne keeps it simple with a dark brown, bomber style zip-up leather jacket, with a relaxed collar. It has a subtle look that provides high-end fashion, without throwing it in your face.
To find a jacket like this one, we suggest this Versace black bomber jacket. Or if you’re a spy on a budget, try this Diesel leather jacket, in black. Both mirror the style of the jacket Bourne wears in the film, and are versatile enough to wear with almost any outfit.
No spy is complete without a watch. They need a watch that not only tells time, but has numerous other attributes as well. The two Casio watches we’re suggesting come with a built in compass, thermometer, world time, stopwatch and timer, and even a tidal graph. Of course they also need to be shock resistant and water resistance to be able to deal with any situation.
There are many other elements to Jason Bourne’s spy style. His boots are a very important part of the outfit, as they have to be able to endure his fast-paced, action-packed lifestyle. This means you need a pair of study, waterproof boots with plenty of traction. Try out these Timberland rugged boots or these Barbour Whitburn boots in brown.
A reliable pair of jeans like these Levi’s that can survive the wear and tear of everyday life are also necessary. A good pair of jeans will last you for years, no matter what you get up to in them. Finally, when Bourne isn’t wearing his leather jacket, a comfortable jumper is a fine replacement. This Antony Morato full zip knitted jumper is both stylish and practical. The comfortable collar can be worn down, or up against the neck for extra protection against cold winds.
Whether you want the outfit just to look like Jason Bourne, or if you’re thinking of starting up a career as a spy yourself, our suggestions will have you fully kitted out. Of course, the outfit is only part of being a super spy, and a lot more training is required to reach the level of Bourne, but clothing is as good a start as any.
