What is a Rodeo Suit?

Inspired by the original rodeo tailors Nudie Cohn, Rodeo Ben, Nathan Turk, & Manuel Cuevas.

Also known as Nudie suits, these flamboyant, rhinestone-encrusted cowboy outfits were worn by country singers beginning in the 1950's. The suits were popularized by the "singing-cowboys" of Hollywood like Lefty Frizzell, Gene Autry, and Porter Wagoner.

Velvet Outlaw draws inspiration from these original makers but takes customization and upcycling to the next level. We provide ready-to-wear embellished suit jackets that are upcycled from thrifted or gifted suits.

We will work with you to create your own custom thrifted embellished suit or talk about making one from scratch.

How do I get a custom outfit?

Please fill out the inquiry form on our website this can be found on the home page or on the contact page.


Custom clothing is slow-made by hand and takes time! Rodeo suits take about 4-8 weeks after the design appointment is made.

What materials do you use?

Velvet Outlaw does their best to use thrifted, upcycled, or gifted materials to make each custom one-of-a-kind item. There are times that we have to purchase rhinestones or other assembly materials from a retail supplier to ensure the safety and quality of our products.

How much does it cost?

Velvet Outlaw suits and other custom clothes are one of a kind. We use mostly thrifted fabrics or ready-made suits to turn into Rodeo Suits. Because of this the price can vary dramatically depending on your custom outfit.


We do provide one of a kind ready-to-wear items that start at a lower price point.

We offer payment plans and require a deposit for all custom orders.

Who wears these? + Sizing info

We want all people to be able to enjoy a custom piece of clothing. Rodeo suits are crafted to embrace the personality of the Velvet Outlaw that wears it.

Sizing is based on the measurements you provide. Alternatively, you can provide us with a suit to embellish for you.

We see Velvet Outlaw suits as an investment in your wardrobe, yourself, and to showcase just how unique you are.

We hope that you love your Velvet Outlaw custom as much as we love making them.
