destry-rides-againWestern Collar Tips

You have probably have guessed by now that here at Route 66 we have a major soft spot for almost all things western. So when designers such as Balenciaga and Miu Miu start featuring these great statement pieces into their own collections we are naturally thrilled. Of course we always knew these little metal tips are capable of brightening up any button up shirt!
We have some dazzling little examples in store at the moment so why not head down and pick yourself up a pair or two!

Rhinestone Cowboy, Nudie Cohn pictures + New western cowboy boot tips in store.

27 Jul

We’ve come across some more vintage boot tips for cowboy boots (we had these in store a little while ago!) They are now available at the garage for $20 each… they feature gold details on silver caps such as cowboys, horses and horse shoes and steer skulls.  

Sorting through the boot tips got us in a western kinda mood and we got to thinking about great western wear, and the fantastic suits created by Nudie Cohn… The embroiderys and motifs created by Nudie on his famous suits are a huge inspiration to us here at Route 66, we thought we would share some of our favorite pics of Nudie suits with you all…



Nudie Cohn and the ‘Nudie Mobile’

Nudie himself,  strutted around town in his own outrageous suits and rhinestone-studded cowboy hats.
His sartorial trademark was mismatched boots, which he wore, he said, to remember his humble beginnings in the 1930s when he could not afford a matching pair of shoes.



In 2006, Porter Wagoner said he had accumulated 52 Nudie Suits, costing between $11,000 and $18,000 each.

Nudie and Gram Parsons, Gram wears the infamous suit for the cover of the Flying Burrito Brothers 1969 album The Gilded Palace.

Want more? check out this fantastic blog here: www.theselvedgeyard.wordpress.com they’ve got a great post about Nudie Cohn amoung other things and If you’ve now got the urge for a little western embelishment yourself, head on down to the garage and check out our vintage boot tips and western wear!
