Wilson’s style, he says, comes from growing up in the church and being impressed by the style of the congregation. "My dad was a Pentecostal Bishop in Tulsa so my mom had a beautiful collection of hats that she wore to church," stated Wilson. "I believe that a hat completes the outfit of a well-dressed man. At almost every red carpet event you will see me wearing a hat with my suit. When a woman wears a hat, it brings out another side of her personality and further complements the outfit she is wearing. It was important to me that when we created my hat line that we had styles for both men and women that could be easily dressed up or down," he explains.
The Uncle Charlie Hats by Charlie Wilson line that includes hats for dress and casual wear was premiered at the 2012 Magic Retail Show in Las Vegas. Everything from cowboy hats, sun hats, caps, and fedoras are a part of the fashion line which is available at www.unclecharliewilson.com/shop, and will be showcased at the New Orleans Convention Center during the Essence Music Festival July 6th – 8th, 2012.
