    I hope I won't get shot for this ... but this is my absolute least favorite jumpsuit ... IMO it doesn't at all suit Elvis ...

    Perhaps if you Imagined a slimmer Elvis perhaps 1970-73 wearing this little number, would you change your mind?

    That's an interesting question! It is kinda hard to answer, no our guy doesn't look his best at this point of his career, that much is clear. On the other hand, I do like other jumpsuits that he wore while he wasn't at his physical peak ..

    I guess that conclusion is that although his appearance is always a factor, this suit doesn't really do it for me (not even when I imagine a slim Elvis in it) ... how do you feel about it?

    i think that the name reflected the occasion ... 1976 was america's 200th birthday ( bicentennial ). It wouldnt be named as Blue Bicentennial if he wore them before '76.... it 'll be neat if any artist on this forum could do some trick with elvis early 70s wearing this jumpsuit...see how different he looked like..

    It would be cool to see, although I find it very unlikely that it will change my mind on this issue. I guess you can not like 'em all, right?

    Don't mean to be a disputer here or anything.... but I was at the September 8, '76 show in Pine Bluff, AR, and the blue suit was indeed worn that night. But my uncle and his family attended the first PB show on the 7th and told us that Elvis wore a white costume with blue sleeves that evening....

    Just food for thought, I guess. I don't have any photos of either show, so....

    Although this suit (and the white version) is widely known as the "Bicentennial Suit" this is not the original name. The correct name is "Prehistoric Bird" and Bill Belew got his inspiration after watching the 1956 movie "The Ten Commandments" in which actor Yul Brynner wore a gigantic robe. That robe stood model for both suits. When it became clear Elvis started to wear both suits on and on during the "Bicentennial Year" 1976 the fans started to call these suits "Bicentennial Suits".

    Didn't Elvis ripped this jumpsuit on the first time he used it?

    Yes, that's right. It was on March 21 in Cincinatti during the matinee show.

    re ; THE BLUE BICENTENNIAL SUIT

    I remember seeing this suit on E.P. really good in LARGO, MD up close it didn't look to bad, especially when he was under a bright light, the flared lighting made it look tacky, even if you had seats further than 4th row it looked bad, but compaired to the WHITE BICENTENNIAL it was not as great looking, the white with blue satin was a much better colour scheme, if you look closely at the suit [pale blue] those of youwho seen E.P. wear this suit in LARGO will notice something wrong with it, especially if you were there.
