The actor and musician Nat Wolff, 22, has been performing since the age of 7. Perhaps best known as the leading man in “The Fault in Our Stars,” this month he is featured in the romantic comedy “Home Again.” Though he was born in Los Angeles, Mr. Wolff remains sartorially faithful to New York City, where he grew up, favoring the style of the Strokes and the young Al Pacino. Here, he shares five favorites from his closet.
Shirt I tend to think the simpler, the better. I do a black shirt or a white shirt. It’s usually a crew-neck tee. I’ve been called a cartoon character, because I like a uniform. Occasionally, I’ll do a button-down. For me, it’s really important that the shirt material is soft. I get super-antsy when I have an itchy tag on the back of my shirt. I like Hanes — I got a bunch of those. Sometimes clothes that are super-fancy don’t feel good.
Jeans I just got to back from doing a movie in Norway. There, I discovered Acne — which is the weirdest name for a company and it’s something I’ve been fighting all my life — and their jeans fit skinny people really well.
Jacket I have a John Varvatos jacket in brown leather. It’s nice on a windy day; it’s nice for a dress-up; it’s nice for a dress-down. This was given to me as a birthday present. Honestly, I don’t shop much. I’ve stolen a lot from movie sets and I’ve tried taking pieces from photo shoots, but they watch them closely.
Shoes When it comes to shoes, it’s pretty much just boots. I have one pair of black Chelsea boots with a zipper by AllSaints that I’ve had for two years. I was walking in Norway and I had these huge holes in these boots, but I couldn’t let the boots go. They’re like a family member. I’ve tried to replace them, but they don’t make them anymore. So I feel like I’m doing Tinder for boots. I’m swiping whichever way is bad and not finding love. I’m just sleeping around with different boots. Right now, I’m wearing a pair of boots for Frye, but I feel sorry for them because they’re just a weak comparison.
Ring I just started wearing a ring. I’m trying to be a ring guy. It’s silver, and it can spin around and it has Greek symbols on it. It’s cool, because I have a real tendency to fidget, so it’s like a fidget spinner but on my finger.
