FASHION ACTION: Between learning how to ride a horse as the namesake fighter in “Hercules 3D” and speeding on a motorcycle for “The Expendables 3,” actor Kellan Lutz squeezed in some time to preview the spring collection for his casual knit brand, Abbot + Main, in Las Vegas on Monday. Standing in a heather blue Henley from the line in a suite at the Mandalay Bay hotel, the chiseled actor proved that even hard bodies want soft clothes.

“It’s all about comfort,” he said, after surviving months of filming “Hercules 3D” in Bulgaria. “We’re not this fashionista brand.”

Still, the model-turned-actor-turned-designer, back in the States for his next role as a young gun facing Sylvester Stallone and Harrison Ford in the “Expendables” franchise,  has learned to think more like a fashion insider. Gone are the sheer T-shirts dyed tomato red from the debut season in fall 2011. The spring lineup includes a tan Sherpa jacket with ribbed knit trim on the shawl collar for men’s and a women’s coral muscle T with front pocket sewn into the side seam.

Having launched a children’s grouping for this back-to-school season, the brand will add chambray, twill and other woven fabrics next year, said Lutz’s partner, designer Danny Guez.

Lutz heeded the advice that Roberto Cavalli shared during Milan Fashion Week: Stick to the brand. “You have to evolve with the business,” Lutz said, “but stay true to who you are.”
