Manuel(Nudie's son in law)could probably make you one...

He's in Nashville...look him up....

Nudie probably made Hank's suit...

That's my favorite too!

I was working a casino gig in Reno last summer and stumbled into a place called Dick Diamond's Golden Jackal. They had a pretty decent selection of custom embroidered western suits. Might be worth giving them a call.

They don't appear to have a website, but here is an article I found.

A few years ago I ran into Nudie's daughter's booth at a Cowboy Christmas (Mandalay Bay) She was trying to get the business going again. Got a kewl coffee mug from her and a great pic of her Dad with Elvis wearing the gold lamay suit.

back in the late 80's in Croatia, nobody had a wester shirts, and I wanted one, so I made my own design, and have it hand made at the local embroidery shop in zagreb... it is 100% silk, hand embroidered ... it is a custom design and work, one of a kind, I actually loved it so much I never wore it lol ... it was not cheap either ...

Post Posted 14 Oct 2017 4:20 pm     Roswell Glitter Jacket Reply with quote

About 10 years ago ,I had this UFO theme Roswell jacket made by a Beijing Opera costume store. Personally bought the material and had it fitted at the costume store. For special occasions playing out, I still wear it.

This was not embroidered as was Damir's shirt so it was not expensive.

Still, it was fun creating one's own design and wearing the jacket. Every performance was like Halloween. Give it a try members!
