    Two Wilburn Brothers Two-Piece Outfits Designed by Nudie. The Wilburn brothers scored their first hit, "Sparkling Brown Eyes" in 1954 and went on to record 30 more chart hits between 1955 and 1972. In 1963, they hosted their own TV variety series and helped launch the careers of the Oak Ridge Boys, Tammy Wynette, and Barbara Mandrell. Doyle died in 1982, and Teddy in 2003. This lot contains two complete two-piece outfits (pants and shirt) designed for and worn by Doyle and Teddy Wilburn. Each pair of pants and shirt has the Nudie label attached, and is personalized for each brother. The suits are identical, green in color with much ornate stitching, embroidery, and other heavy ornamentation such as sequins and fringe. These are perfect examples of Nudie's over-the-top design in show wear. Although showing normal wear, they are in excellent condition.
