Nudie by Art Kane
“I love this picture. Nudie, L.A.'s Ukranian born tailor to rock stars like Elvis, The Stones. This picture is a real comment on our culture. The wild west, right? Used to be real horses, now the only real horse is a plastic horse with no legs, and the only real cowboy is a nice Russian Jewish boy from the Bronx, and that's America, and I love it.”

Rex's Nudie Suit
The one-of-a-kind Black Flash Suit was made exclusively for Rex Allen Sr. in approx 1962 by "Nudie's Rodeo Tailors" of North Hollywood, California. Rex Allen Sr. had a hit record "Son Don't Go Near The Indians" at that time. That is why there is an Indian on the back. He wore this exquisite stretch lamé fabric outfit on hundreds of shows through out the United States and Canada. Rex Allen Sr. called it stretch metal! All the work on the jacket is hand embroidery. It is a one of a kind. It recently sold for $29,500 USD.
