Photo 28 Mar 4 notes Here’s  the true story of how it all started: A man named Turk had a Western Wear shop in North Hollywood  in the 40’s and he was just starting to make fancy suits. The  Maddox brother had him make several suits for them. (So the  suits the Maddox Bros. and I wore were made by Turk,  or possibly even some by Nudie because Nudie worked for Turk. Turk  taught Nudie how to make those fancy clothes). Then Nudie left Turk and  started his own business and started making the clothes for all the Nashville  entertainers. Also that famous gold lame suit for Elvis and also for Roy Rogers and Gene Autry and all the cowboys and he became really famous. Nudie was a great guy,  I liked him a lot. I don’t remember ever meeting Bobbie but I might  have. A few years ago at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Show in Vegas, I  meet their grand daughter and she told me then that her Grandma was  really sick.
