    Carl Smith Two-Piece Suit Designed by Nudie. During the 1950s, Carl Smith was one of country music's most prolific hit-makers. His first big record was "Mr. Moon," followed by "If Teardrops Were Pennies," "Me and My Broken Heart," and "There's Nothing as Sweet as My Baby." For the next several years it was hit after hit after hit. Smith toured with the Philip Morris Country Music Show and Red Foley's Jubilee U.S.A. Carl Smith had at least one song on the country charts every year between 1951 and 1973. He was elected to the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2003, the same year he died. This gray suit was designed by Nudie Cohn for Carl Smith, and Cohn's label as well as Smith's name are sewn into the outfit. Also included in this lot is one of the singer's shirts with his name and a tie that would make this outfit an impressive display piece. Normal age wear with four black stains on back of suit.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
