Ashton Kutcher Spotted Wearing Steve Jobs' Trademark Wardrobe

Saturday May 12, 2012 8:53 PM PDT by Eric Slivka
The casting of Ashton Kutcher in the role of Steve Jobs in an upcoming independent film focusing on the Apple co-founder's life has certainly generated a significant amount of attention for the project, despite the fact that the film is a completely separate effort from the high-profile planned Sony Pictures film to be based on Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Jobs.


With filming on the indie film starring Kutcher having already begun with the star on break from his work on the TV show Two and a Half Men, TMZ shares a few photos of Kutcher seen wearing Jobs' trademark outfit of a black turtleneck, jeans, and sneakers. The photos were reportedly taken on Friday while Kutcher was walking to the set of the film.


Kutcher has been said by some to bear an uncanny resemblance to a young Steve Jobs, particularly with having adopted a close copy of Jobs' hairstyle and facial hair from those days. Jobs did not adopt his trademark wardrobe until a number of years later, but Kutcher is clearly taking on that aspect of Jobs' identity for the role as well.

The question is, why is he wearing the turtleneck and jeans as "Young Steve". I thought Steve only got those as he was beginning to turn older and grey. Back when he had a full head of brown hair and a beard he wore different "normal" clothes.

There are pictures of Steve at NextStep wearing the outfit.

Ahh, I am mistaken then.


And let's not forget the outfit in the famous picture when he did the Macintosh.

You have to be an amazing writer to pull off a screenplay about Steve. You cannot fake Steve. At least, not the one that he presented to the outside world. That part should be really true, because we all saw the interviews through various stages in his life.

I think some people are taking it a little too far. I mean, sure, it might have been better to copy the exact clothing Steve wore (just ignoring the fact that he didn't really use to wear this stuff untill later in life), but I can't say it would make the movie any less good to me. The movie could be made less good if the script sucks or if Ashton's acting really turns out to be that bad, but I couldn't care less about him wearing the exact same shoes. As long as there is resemblance and it's recognizable.

sigh...the guy was GOING to the set NOT in it. Clearly is his own clothes and he is trying to get into character & a great PR move for the movie & him.

Those aren't even close to brand of shoes that Steve wore..


I don't know what's worse. The fact that he doesn't look exactly like Steve Jobs or the fact that someone knows what brand shoes he wore.

:eek:
