One of the most unique tailors of all time is Nudie Cohn from the U.S. He lived from 1902 – 1984. His suits were known as Nudie suits by celebrities. He was the personal tailor for people like Elvis, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, etc.

Such a shame that a characteristic person like Nudie passed away…

Score a copy of his book on internet; Nudie, ”The rodeo tailor”.
