Fabricated of silicon-coated ripstop nylon, Left Mitten is decked out like a Country and Western performer, replete with fringe, appliqué, and embroidery. Country and Western costuming as a craft was perfected Nudie’s Rodeo Tailo, among others, to outfit Hollywood's singing cowboys and Grand Ole Opry style performers. The style came to represent the Wild West and the rural, not by mimicking the existing styles of those regions, but by creating a stage-ready amalgamation of immigrant and Native American traditions.
