    I just got back from Pigeon Fordge, TN,and went to the Elvis museum. They said that the suit they have on display was made for Elvis, but didn't fit right, and he gave it to J.D. Sumner, and J.D. sold it to Mr. Moon to put in the museum. Another one was made for Elvis which he used. Here are a couple of pictures of the suit on display there. Does anyone know where the one Elvis wore is today?

    The Jumpsuit displayed in those picture does indeed look like one of Elvis' from circa 1971 or 1972 and of a similar design as the Blue Nail however I'm just not sure that this is ligit, the belt design just doesn't look like those that Elvis wore! I could be wrong but something just doesn't seem right?

    Your feelings about this suit are right Matt. This is not a genuine Elvis suit. It's not even done by IC Costumes. Last year there was a discussion going on about this suit so I decided then to forward the question to Butch. His very own word then were: "These kind of suits are an insult towards the Elvis designers!"

    The real "Blue Nail" is in a very bad state of neglecting. It was sort of stolen by one of Elvis' employees (together with another suit) and sold to a lady who supposedly owne a dry cleaning store. She sold both suits to an impersonator who removed a lot of the studs and started to perform in it. The current wearabouts of both suits are unknow.

    Brent, I've seen that suit that's on display in the Elvis Museum in Pigeon Forge, TN, but did you know that until about 6 years ago, they advertised that suit as "actually being worn by Elvis". Looks like they have changed their story again.

    Due to Elvis's hair, I believe that first picture on the left is from Hampton Roads on the evening of April 9, 1972 and if so, that's the "White Fireworks" belt he's wearing.

    The real "Blue Nail" suit is in the possession of Sherif Hanna, I believe. The last I read was that the suit was in varying states of disrepair...which is a crying shame, to be honest.

    Matt

    I agree....I don't believe for one second that that suit is the real "Blue Nail" suit.

    That's a really good question....it looks to be a replica that an ETA would wear, IMO.....

    I would def agree with you on this TT... I am most certain that this pic is from the Hampton Roads Coliseum show. I'll go back and look...but did no one post a pic from that show with the cape??? This suit was great, and it looked awesome on him.

    Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..

    It definitely is a great suit! I wonder if there might be any photos in the gallery with him spreading the cape?

    That's a good question TT! If you find any...pass them along to me. He certainly did spread it at the end of the show...so you'd think there would be some pics floating around somewhere.... I probably won't be back online for a few days...gotta go to take care of my Dad...but if you find them, be sure to let me know! Thanks a bunch...
