Now tell me if I am wrong. But was some of these suits own by a country singer that gave them to Elvis? I think I am wrong. Because one of them looks like suit Willie Nelson wore?

Great suit making the super cool Elvis look even cooler (if that's possible)
I love these suits and would love to see more pics from 1974 – especially the brown tan wine glass suit– cooler than a warehouse full of fridges!

What's the difference between this suit and the Mermaid, and is this the one he wore on 4/1/75?

Well, first of all.. there is no "Mermaid Suit". That suit is a myth like so many are.
The suit that has been called "Mermaid" is a two-piece leather suit with naitive flowers on the front and shoulders. At the back there is a painting of a girl in a blue dress. But it's not a Mermaid because her feet are showing. And a Mermaid has a fish tale....

The "Emperor Suit" has painted animal figures like birds and deers.

I never really cared for this outfit.

Me either. These suits just weren't Elvis. 1974 seemed to be a really strange year for him...like a real turning point although the next year he seemed really happy and then went down with a bang in 1976 from which he never recovered.

They were different for sure............I would rather see him in his two-piece suits from 1972. They were more Elvis than this...........but as always he looked good in it.

In 74 I thought he was really looking for change of some kind-but he just never got comfortable with the idea. I think he worried about change being for the worse, and change takes a real commitment to that change.
I think he just had no idea what and how to really change-without someone he respected pushing him towards it.

Agreed, 1974 was the year that Elvis needed to be challenged and more importantly he wanted to change himself. It's such an up and down year 1974, Elvis was at a presipis and unfortunately tipped over the other side and never fully recovered to his 1973 peak all but a few times.

I like this suit - especially the pants - both the design and fit on Elvis is tremendous!!! :D (y)

But, I have to agree, I don't think the suit was dynamic enough for his shows. IMO, there is something missing that makes the suit almost too casual for the stage. I also miss seeing a beautiful huge belt draped around his waist.
