Nudie’s sewing machine

Nudie the Rodeo Tailor in his Shop

Nudie Cohn in his workshop. The embroidery panels on the table are similar to one of Robert Redford’s suits in 1979’s Electric Horseman. Young apprentice Manuel Cuevas, (who recently turned 86) is at the pressing table.


The machine behind Nudie is now at the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Without knowing it was the same model, I got this one off Kijiji Kitchener for 75.00 about ten years ago.


The serial number says it belongs to a lot of 15,000 made in November 1948.
