David Arquette is a designer — would you buy his clothes?

‘I’m obsessed with clowns,” says actor David Arquette, plucking a suit jacket from a clothing rack. “I think clowns get a bad name! I actually was talking to my wife [Courteney Cox Arquette] one time, and I was like, ‘Well, if I was to be myself, I’d probably dress as a clown every day, to be honest with you.’ ”

Arquette is standing in the Los Angeles showroom of his clothes line, propr, which has just expanded to more New York stores such as Scoop, Saturdays and Revolve this year. His line of T-shirts, woven button-downs, denim and suits ranging from $48 to $295 is far more conservative than his own personal taste. This, after all, is the same guy who wore a bright green suit to present a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to Kermit the Frog, and attended the opening night of “The Pee-wee Herman Show” dressed as Pee-wee Herman.

So how does a guy with circus taste end up inside the ring of New York fashion?

“I love using clothes to express your feelings and emotions and to define you,” says Arquette. And sometimes, it seems, one outfit just can’t express all he feels in a day. “When we have big parties at our house, I change costumes,” he says. “I go through a bunch. I’m like Cher!” Though, unlike Cher, he rarely wishes he could turn back time: “A lot of people look back on pictures and think, ‘Oh my God, what was I doing?’ I like to do it that day.”
