Matthew McConaughey is a man of intense and very unique style--and he claims he chooses most of his apparel himself. He does, however, admit that he picks out clothing items he knows wife Camila Alves will approve of. He's been spotted recently wearing some very unique style options, but that just sort of goes along with the Dallas Buyers Club star's personality.

McConaughey received an award this past Saturday at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Gala. Bestowed with the Desert Palm Achievement Award, he dressed the part fans were hoping to see.

Wearing a Saint Laurent gold suit jacket, a white shirt and bow tie, he was a sight to behold, alongside his beautiful wife.

"I picked this one out," Matthew said to reporters about his stylish ensemble. "I have no idea [what I’ll wear to the Golden Globes]. I'll choose it though."

He joked about always picking out his own attire, admitting however that she is a definite influence over his choices.

"Who doesn't want to look nice?" he laughed.

Matthew McConaughey presently stars in The Wolf of Wall Street with Leonardo DiCaprio. As you can see in the following clip, he is definitely a smartly dressed man in this film, too.

McConaughey is as particular about choosing his films as he is his wardrobe these days, too. And why shouldn't he be? He's a sought-after actor with loads of first rate films to his name.

"It's fun to go into the unknown,” he said. "We all grow there … Think about it in everyday life. Now, it's a luxury I can do that. My rent's paid, you know what I mean? So I have the luxury of going, 'I don't have to work right now.’ Not everyone has that luxury. Or I have the luxury of saying, 'Wait a minute, I'm going to go do this other one, it pays a whole lot less, but I can own this in a particular way.’ I’m enjoying it."

Like the gold blazer, Matthew McConaughey has a gold standard in his work ethic--and it shows. It will be fun to see exactly what he chooses for 2014--for both films and style options.
