I didn't know that Elvis had a lot of jumpsuits... I've seen pics of almost all of them and I believe they are just great: pure Elvis' style. I love many of the king's costumes, but my favorite is the Blue Nail Jumpsuit (1972) Elvis looks stunning! And if we talk about costumes, I guess that the black leather one from the 68 Come Back Special has a very good place... just like that 50s sexy lam? suit (by the way, is true what some people say about Elvis didn't like this golden suit???).

I like the Mexican Sundial Suit and although many may not agree, he wore it in a time that his voice sounded magnificent and he definitely was a better Sun King than Louis the 14th from France..

I have many favourites but the one I'm taking quite a liking to of recent times is quite a rare one (I think), and it's the 'Snowflakes' jumpsuit.

Well now you are talking my thing!!!!!

It's a very difficult choice, but for me the jumpsuits from 1971-72 are my personal favourites e.g.

White Pyramid (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jumpsuit%20Index%20Archive%205/White%20Pyramid%201972/White%20Pyramid%20New/elvis%20presley%20white%20pyramid%20new.html)
Black Matador (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jmpsuit%20Index%20Archive/Black%20Matador/Black%20New/elvis%20presley%20black%20matador%20jumpsuit%20197 1%20extraa.html)
White Matador (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jumpsuit%20Index%20Archive%204/Red%20Lion%201971-72/New%20Lion/elvis%20presley%20red%20lion%20jumpsuit%201971%20e xtraaa.html)
Black Pyramid (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jmpsuit%20Index%20Archive/eppg%20black%20pyramid%20-%20butterflyjumpsuit%201972a.html)
Double Porthole (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jumpsuit%20Index%20Archive%204/Porthole%201972/Porthole%20New/elvis%20presley%20porthole%201972%20extraa.html)
Blue Nail (http://www.tcb-files.com/elvispictures/Jumpsuit%20Index%20Archive%202/elvis%20presley%20blue%20nail%20jumpsuit%201972a.h tml)

and the list goes on, the design is very similar for this time period with a lot of studs and portholes on either side of the v shape of the chest and collars.

I also like the Phoenix Jumpsuits, all three look great and I think you are hard pushed to find a bad picture of Elvis in them in 1975.

Since ya'll are such crazy Elvis fans, like me, you probably already know this...but did ya'll know that Elvis wore tall collars on his shirts, jackets, jumpsuits, etc. b/c he felt like his neck looked too long?? Interesting huh?! Hehe!

And...the 68 Comeback Special leather outfit was made by the same person who made ALL of his jumpsuits years later.

That photo from TTWII wearing the concha suit is stunning. If there was a better looking man then EP, it would have been hard to believe. This is coming from a happily married man.

Bill Belew was involved in most - not all of Elvis's jumpsuits in the later years.

What a tough choice... :hmm:

I've always been partial to the RAINBOW suit, but over the years, I have grown to like both of the BICENTENNIAL suits as well!! (y)

TCB!
Mike

P.S. Gotta give an honorable mention to the RAINFALL suit as well...simple, yet very cool (in my opinion, of course!) ;)
