I was just looking in the gallery and came accross this picture posted by ForeverTheKing and it struck me as very odd!

http://img19.picoodle.com/img/img19/3/11/28/f_divorcem_1330ef4.jpg

Here was a man who was very probably one of the sharpest dressers in the world turning up to the divorce court in a jogging suit?

Now I know people are going to say he was upset with the divorce, he probably had other things on his mind etc, but he turned up to a paternity suit in a two piece suit with a cane :lol:

Well he was very aware of his outfits through his whole life.
So the only person who can tell why this outfit was chosen is him.
But there are thousands of pics showing him wearing a similar outfit in the mid-seventies so maybe he just wanted to dress up this way.

I always thought seeing pictures from this day that his hair doesnŽt even look washed.
It was a very bad day for him, maybe he took a lot of medication so he didnŽt care too much for everything including his outfit...

Elvis had just finished that vegas stand, his weight was up, and his mood was severly down...

I always thought that Elvis looked very different in those 1973 pictures too. He looked more like he did in 1977. He was still a snappy dresser in 1973 so the track suit do not fit in for that time period. I know he wore them quite frequently in 1977 and they certainly did not do him justice. I personally did not like those suits. I guess these group of pictures show the stress he was under and the increased drug use he was probably into at that time.

I remember Priscilla mentioning in her book that how ill Elvis seemed that day and how puffy his hands were. I believe he did have a fluid retention problem and on bad days he probably opted for what was comfortable rather than what was fashionable.

The tracksuit decision is self-consciously relaxed.
When a man who cares about clothes as much as Elvis did dresses like this, he intends for people to think he is relaxed about this event.
There were no 'accidents' in Elvis's wardrobe.

Let's be real here. He was getting a divorce, one of the worst days of his life. If he didn't feel like being a "snappy dresser" who can blame him? He was losing his wife and his daughter, what pants to wear was probably the last thing on his mind.

So True i think he was getting a divorce the sadest thing at that point to him.
he didn't care how he dressed.what he wore wasn't on his mind.
but he can wear anything and make it look good lol thou.
just my thought on this.

I'm sure Elvis had his reason for appearing in court in the sweatsuit. I found him very different in weight size at this point as well and maybe he did just wear it for comfort.

They both look pretty happy in that picture Donut. I'm sure they were both very glad the whole thing was over with.

My brother and I have been going through my Mom's house on the weekends and we have found alot of Elvis trivia from my teen years. I found the actual business card from "Bis and Beau", with the phone number and the address etc... I will try and get that scanned this week and put it here on the board. No, she wasn't there that day but her partner Olivia was there, and she was very sweet. I bought 2 outfits from the store, the pants of course were "bell bottoms", or as they say now "flare legs.";):lol: It was a small, boutique like store.
The YT video below is from my actual pics, and as you can see there are several good close-up shots of the outside of the store. Don't hesitate to ask me any questions.:D

I think his choice of wardrobe certainly reflects his frame of mind. I don't know if I would say he is conveying relaxed, as was Teddy's opinion. I would say that he reflects a great loss of self-esteem. I mean -- look at the man. Its the first time that we see him looking so un-Elvis, un-cool, un-together. For one of the world's most photographed celebrities, this is the first time we see Elvis looking so deflated or defeated.....and it is just shocking.

Priscilla was dressed for the fashionable 70's. Whether you like the fashions of the 70's or not is a personal thing, but her clothes are what many were wearing at the time. Elvis, however, does seem a little un-Elvisly dressed.

It seems she has no make up( at least her usual make up) her hair simple and not styled, her dress is not bad but not that smart, I thought she was too sad to care for fashion in her divorce day.........

Elvis's wardrobe was very carefully considered even before he was scrutinized by the media.
I don't think he got halfway down the street that morning and thought 'maybe I should have worn something a little snazzier for this thing'.

You know getting a divorce is a failure in life-no matter how you look at it.
Elvis must have felt, I failed. (or we failed) No one likes failure, especially if you are perceived as the sexiest man alive by millions of fans. Its an ego killer for sure. Maybe he just did not feel like dressing up on that day, maybe he did not feel the need to "put on a show"
He may have felt vulnerable, less kingly so to speak.

Elvis was starting to wear those jogging suits a bit at this stage in his life.

I don't think he woke up that morning and decided that as this was his divorce he would wear a jogging suit, maybe he did, but I don't think so.

I think he was comfortable in it, and he was beginning to get a bit bigger so it was probabaly comfortable for him as well.

She sure took him to the cleaners over the whole divorce though.

Yes, I can go with that as a possible explanation and perhaps he was inclined to 'show' this with his choice of clothes, consciously or otherwise.

I think its silly to say that Elvis wore the jogging outfit due to medication use.

Sure he was probably feeling down about the whole mess and maybe he just didn't feel like going all out with getting dressed up.

I love how it all goes back to Elvis and his medication...even when it comes to his wardrobe.

No its always the medication, Elvis simply could not have gotten up that day, and felt like putting on a track suit to wear, the pills made him. Thats really how some of you look at it.

it is certainly not black and white -just the medication or only something other- but i think that in times of trouble and psychic stress an addiction gets worse and when depression about something like separation and divorce adds to it you take more to forget. maybe it was even difficult to wake him for the appointment at court and he just made it to get there. so the least that was important that day was his clothes...

Jumpsuit Junkie
12-04-2008, 02:37 AM
If Elvis just fell out of bed and was stoned, why would he have taken the time to select jewellery? It just doesn't add up, if he was that bad the guys would have TCB'd and Elvis would have stayed in bed. Worst case scenario the guys would have dressed him and I'm pretty sure something else would have been selected. So the indication has to be that Elvis chose to ware the tracksuit for what ever personal reasons :hmm:

sweet pia
12-04-2008, 02:52 AM
well, maybe youŽre right, weŽll never know for sure, but he does definitely not wear too much jewelry (not one ring if iŽm not mistaken), his hands are very puffy, his hair is not styled. i once read that at least the days after the divorce he received demerol injections...maybe also before it ?

I never blamed his medication for his wardrobe choice. He probably just didn't care what he wore. But I think 20 posts on why he is wearing a jogging suit on the day of his divorce is really over-analyzing his behavior. As far as being medicated, I would be surprised if he wasn't as he had nearly od'ed several times by Oct. 1973 and nearly died within the next 9 days.

It's amazing how EVERYTHING goes back to his medication!!! But, if you were here living it back in the day you'd remember that everything wasn't about the medication. It was only after he died that this happened! Wonder why his heavy medication use wasn't discussed back then like it is now????

I'm in agreement with Jak 100% as well.(y)

Everything can't be put down to Elvis' medication for heaven's sake! The man just decided to wear what he did and that was that. I've seen very few pictures of him that make me think he might have been over medicated and most of them were in his last two years. The pictures in '74 where he was wearing the Wine Glass leather suit does look like he's out of it and that's the earliest to me that shows it.

I still think he got up-and thought consciously (or subconsciously),
"What ground breaking thing will I be doing today? Is today the Aloha worldwide special, or the start of a new tour-No today is the day I admit in court-my marriage failed. The fairytale life everyone thinks I have has a big failure in it-and marriage is a 50/50 deal so I have some blame."
Thats just a guess,- my opinion-but surely he had no feeling of satisfaction or expectations for a great day.
IMO He probably felt normal-vulnerable and normal. He probably (for one of the few times till then) cared less what he wore. He wanted to get there and get it over-like anyone else in that situation.

All I have to say is, I am glad I am not nearly as photographed as Elvis was....I practically live in sweats and comfortable clothes. And, I am a nurse, so I get to wear my pj's to work too. :)

I am surprised that as conscious of 'The Image' as he was, knowing the media would be capturing every moment, he allowed himself to look less than his best

He was such a trendsetter, unusual not to be in tip-top attire

I can't really remember; but were those suits very common back then. If not,
maybe Elvis did set the trend toward everyone wearing them so much now.:D

Look what happens 6 days later. If this is an indication of how he felt about it.
I think it was more about how it went down. That she went public with the story about leaving him for Mike Stone. Also having another man around his daughter, Lisa.

October 9, 1973

Elvis and Priscilla make a court appearance together and their divorce is granted. They will continue to be close friends. Though Priscilla has custody of Lisa Marie, there will be no formal schedule of visitation for Elvis, and he and his daughter will spend time together regularly.

October 15 - November 1, 1973

Elvis is hospitalized in Memphis for recurring pneumonia and pleurisy, an enlarged colon, and hepatitis. Elvis has been battling health problems for some time, including an increasing dependency upon prescription drugs. It will get worse. He also battles his weight.

That outfit is not a sweat suit or a "warm-up" suit! Clearly there's a difference!:lmfao:

I do believe that he considers himself to be dressed up, he certainly wasn't 'sloppy' just comfortable. The shoes he was wearing - weren't they quite dressy? Didn't they have a band across them with his initials in gold? At any case this was not considered work-out clothing back in the day!
