Nudie could turn a jacket into a work of art

Someday… Someone will put up a Nudie on eBay for a one day auction, say during the Super Bowl or the Indy 500… And no one will bid but me! LOL! The Cosmic Cowboy Ranch is dedicated to the unique intersection of rock and roll and cowboy culture, where the hippies and the cowboys come together and it’s real hard to tell ’em apart, ‘specially when the music starts!

AWESOME! Was Technical Director ’68, ’69 for Judy Lynn TV Shows. Judy had one of the largest, if not the largest accumulation of Nudie Suits. All the best.

I absolutely love these suits…. I play country music in 3 different bands in western Pennsylvania and I try to dress in the nicest and fanciest shirts I can find. It seems like entertainers dont dress up anymore. I believe an entertainer should look nice on stage whether local or professional!!!!

People used to get dressed up. It was high maintenance, but better than much of the all too revealing stuff we have today. I’m not sure I can bare to watch the Grammy Awards for fear of being flashed 😉

You left out the greatest musicians of them all; The Grateful Dead ! Take two steps backward !

I love seeing this. I was a fashion intern with Manuel in Nashville in 2012. If you know Nudie then you know Manuel. I love seeing these designs online.
