001 – Chitta-Chatta

This week has me thinking about fashion. What if Judith Pierce and Tim Biskup had their work married. Biskup appliqué on western cut suits with rhinestones. There is that famous picture of Nudie Cohn on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. I love the Rolling Stones. Can’t You Hear Me Knocking is playing on my phone. That jacket Nudie has on in the photo is amazing. Besides the obvious, the cut around the belt buckle is genius! Rocket ship down the rabbit hole. Wrestling belts, boxing belts in concho belt style. What if we paired that wine with shorts, t-shirt and mixed matched cowboy boots. Let the play begin. I have this vision of a model on the runway. Top to bottom here we go. Warbonnet fur felt hat with faux pheasant feather. Rose Cut Clothing western jacket in Nudie style with the belt buckle cut. Black and white, pen and ink Biskup art embroidered, chain-stitch style (Jenny Hart) on a t-shirt under. Shorts with the Elvis style Bill Belew belt. American Eagle, Aloha Hawaii anyone? Follow that beer with a pair of mixed matched, two different western boots in Porter Wagoner beads chaser.
