I did a picture with the colonel taken out, what do you think?
I wish there were more in concert photos of this suit. This one is definately in my Top 5 list all time jumpsuits.

I love the dark suits I wish he had more like these made later on!
For anyone (like me, for many, many years) who doesn't already know, this suit is not only set apart from the gold pyramid suit because of its color, the round grommet 'portholes,' and the fact that the studs run the opposite direction but also because instead of pyramidal studs the design is composed of studs shaped like little butterflies. The small studs around the chest vee grommets, too, are not pyramidal but are multifaceted stars.
Hence the whole 'black butterfly jumpsuit' thing, that's a bit baffling until you see the suit close-up (the butterflies aren't discernible in most of the few photos that exist of Elvis in this suit).
I'm a roving roustabout...
Much better without the colonel....Absolutely LOVE this suit!!
Great suit, wish he would've worn it on tour.
This suit is gorgeous and it might feature on the cover of the new "Standing Room Only" FTD 2-CD. The detail is amazing and there's a great pic in the ELVIS BY THE PRESLEY'S BOOK.
I dont like this jumpsuit.
Help me Lord,
I need the sun to drive away
