Nudie Cohn/Rhinestone Cowboy

The Selvedge Yard is one of my favorite blogs, I love it…Jon Patrick does a brilliant job at encapsulating the essence of cool from times past…or I should say from certain things past and influencing present style. Harley Davidson Motorcycles, outlaw bikers (come on, where do you think that current denim craze came from), Johnny Cash, Steve McQueen, 1960s/70s Americana, and beautiful photography by the masters (Penn, Altman).

A favorite post…this one on Mr. Nudie Cohn, the fashion designer and tailor behind the rhinestone-studded, hand-embroidered suits worn by some of the best (or at least brightest) in country/rock music…Dwight Yoakam, ZZ top, Elvis, George Jones, Gene Autry, Cher, Ben Harper….
