    Long Fringed With Cape Jumpsuit (1970)

    Wing Jumpsuit (aka) Long Fringed With Cape Jumpsuit (1970) This is an awesome jumpsuit with the cape already built into the suit, Elvis found it restricted his movement and was inpractical and thus not worn often who knows if others were made but just not worn?????

    Known Dates Worn:-

    November 14, 1970. (8:30 pm) Los Angeles, CA.

    And used in 1971

    It looks awesome, but also like a safety hazard for our man. He had to keep his eyes wide open not to fall or get caught with those fringes. But ... awesome to look at!

    It's a fun suit, but I can definitly understand why Elvis didn't want to wear it too often!

    Elvis did like the suit too but was aware of the hazards. During his Los Angeles concert he got entangled in the microphone cord several times and had to be cut loose by Charlie Hodge.

    However he did use the suit again in 1971.

    i just wonder why the absolute majority of the photos we have (that i knowof) of this suit are in B/W!!

    Thanks all this is an awesome suit!

    Gordon, check out the Modified Photo Gallery. You'll see I have managed to try and ad some color to some of the B & W photos

    It's worthwhile. I love Black and White photo's also, because they have a mood of there own. But occasionally, they just cry out for a liitle color.
    Sometimes a Black & White will be able to be colored and other times it won't. It all depens on the contrasted area's of a photo's attributes.
    Ask any of the people who colorize, they'll tell you it ain't as easy as you think. but I do love modern technology! And ELVIS is the perfect subject to colorize on. So intricate with all of the many jumpsuits he wore.
