    Significance Statement
    Location of Nudie's Rodeo Tailors from 1963 until the early 1990s. Nudie's created costumes for movie cowboys, including Roy Rogers and Gene Autry, and rock stars, including Elvis Presley and Ritchie Valens. Nudie's was known for its rhinestone and lam+¿ suits and boots. Nudie Cohn is sometimes credited as being the first person to create rhinestone-decorated clothing. Nudie's Rodeo Tailors closed in the early 1990s and the building was heavily altered when it was converted to a furniture store; it no longer retains sufficient integrity to convey its significance.
