Arabian Jumpsuit (First Version) (aka) Memphis Jumpsuit (1973-1974)
Arabian (First Version) (aka) Memphis Jumpsuit (1973-1974)
This suit was also called the Kitchen Sink Jumpsuit, the story goes that Elvis wanted a new Jumpsuit and wanted it made quickly, so Gene Doucette and his team used anything and everything they could lay there hands on to make it look impressive, i think you will agree that it worked.
The Arabian pattern design was also used on the King of Spades (Arabian Second Edition) minus the pattern on the arms.

memphis suit with cape on stage
I never saw a pic from the memphis suit with the cape on stage. The black remake from the film 3000 miles to memphis looked great.
Does anyone have a pic of the back of the Nail King of Spades?
This is my first time on this sight and I really enjoyed seeing all the pics of the Memphis Suit or Nail King of Spades? Does anyone have a quality closeup pic of the back of the suit? Thanks,
