Charlie Watts, drummer for the Rolling Stones, is on Vanity Fair's international best dressed list and deservedly so. Charlie dresses the opposite of most men. When he’s working, he’s wearing a colored cotton tee shirt and trousers. On his own time, when you see him on a London street, he’s wearing a Savile Row suit sans necktie. And they are very nice suits, with a relaxed, comfortable feel to them, in solid colors like khaki and pastels in addition to standard English pinstripes. It’s a look that has taken him a couple of decades of dedicated shopping to perfect and it works well for him.
One of the things I admire about Charlie's style is that, unlike George Clooney, he usually manages to avoid the unfinished open collar look whether or not he's wearing a necktie. Charlie wears shirts buttoned to the neck, mock turtlenecks, and, one of my personal favorites with an open dress shirt, a scarf tied in a loose four in hand with the end thrown over the top of the knot. Out of the ordinary and familiar at the same time, it's a well dressed look that's been used successfully for 75 years.
