The Rolling Stones drummer was known to be fashionable, but it may come as a surprise that the rockstar used to wear suits worn by a former king. Watts tragically passed away last month at the age of 80, leaving many fans devastated.
He will be remembered as a member of the iconic rock group, but his classic fashion sense was overlooked.
He may have been the quietest member of the British rock group, but Watts had classic suits that never missed the mark.
William Gilchrist, his longtime stylist and friend, revealed that the musician always had an affinity for fashion.
He wrote in British GQ: “[He would] spend an equal amount of time discussing fabrics and finishings with his tailor.

The drummer wore a grey plaid checkered suit, first worn by Edward in the 60s, in 1996 for publicity pictures.
He sported another piece from the royal’s wardrobe when announcing the Rolling Stones tour in 2002.
He wore Edward’s salmon-coloured suit jacket, which was seen on the royal in 1951.
Commenting on his own sense of style, in a 2012 interview Watts spoke about his love for fashion.
“To be honest, I have a very old-fashioned and traditional mode of dress,” Watts told GQ.
“While I love fashion — I go to all the shops regularly, wherever I am — I have to adapt it to myself, but nothing fits me because I’m too small, so I’ll look at the clothes, then go back and try to adapt them.”
