Charlie Wilson Wears Two Watches to Remind Himself He’s Made It

This is just a chill look to start the week. I was going to the studio, and I knew I was going to be there until after dark, so long sleeves are a must. It’s a good shirt for me, because I’m kind of clumsy with food. [Laughs] If I spill something, it’s all good—I can just rub it in and pretend it was supposed to be there.

I like my socks to be thick and soft. I got some Golf Wang socks from Tyler, the Creator on, and they’re so soft that when you walk around, it feels like you’re in some plush house shoes. Tyler’s the kind of guy that can get away with [wearing] anything, because when he puts it on, he can own it. He can go to the edge, because his music goes to the edge that way. Some of those things I can’t always get away with. [Laughs]

I’ve been wearing glasses for a long time—since the ’70s, when shades were really cool to wear. I was wearing them even before that, and I just kept them on all of these years. Sometimes my wife or assistant will say, “No, no, don’t put those shades on today.” And I’ll be like, “What? I feel naked!” For me, man, it’s just part of my attire. I can really size a person up with them glasses on.

I have a lot of tracksuits, but this Gucci suit is one of my favorites. The first time I wore it I was in South Africa. I visited the Gucci store there and [the staff] started freaking out, like, “Ohhhh, Uncle Charlie’s in the building!” I got the Gucci tennis shoes on to go with it. It’s just like a Tuesday kick-around suit that I can lounge in and lay down in it, and it doesn’t wrinkle up or look funny. And as you can probably tell, my shoulders are looking good because I’ve been lifting weights. [Laughs] I got some definition in those arms!

I wear two watches—one is to tell time, and the other is to tell me what time it really is. I’m not a braggadocious kind of guy, but I do like to let myself know that I’m capable of having whatever it is that I want to have. I usually keep the second one on Oklahoma time, so I can call family members and know I’m not calling too late.
