does my gun look big in this?

March 9, 2006

I love a man in rhinestones. Hell, who doesn’t? Any cowhand secure enough in his masculinity to wear one of these can hitch his horse to my post anytime. If you know what I mean.

Meet the original Rhinestone Cowboy. Nudie started off making g-strings for show girls in the early 1930s and at the end of a long and *cough* glittering career had caped and sequinned everyone from the Lone Ranger to Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers. Not to mention that iconic $10 000 gold lame suit he whipped up for Jesus. Uh, Elvis.

Nudie’s Rodeo Tailors Merchandise and Clothing Store. I get a little thrill just saying it.


Yeeha, Metafilter and this guy.
