    Don't get me wrong, I love the black suits, just not this one. Too flashy and I agree the neckline is aweful, as well as the horizontal bar right on his stomach. It's far too much for me. He didn't really need all this flash, a little is allright but this is too much. I concur with the " Elvis does Ozzy Osbourne" comment. It does bring some of his outfits to mind.

    I liked this style suit, it was flashy but it was good because I thought it hid the weight a little. When I saw Elvis on 3-22-76 he wore the Blue Aztec which is similar. The BlueGypsy is better than the Blue Aztec though.

    This suit makes Elvis look fatter than he was...or highlights how fat he really was. But it is true, many of these jumpsuits have to be seen to be appreciated. This one is beautiful in person, but maybe Elvis should have left it on the rack. Awful.

    I've always liked this suit in spite of it being flashy. I also like the Bear Claw but this one better. Maybe I've been influenced by the fact that he face looks so healthy in spite of the weight gain and also looks happy. I think this was a fun year for him.

    I really like this one! It is different in so many ways...makes it unique in it's own right. And Elvis looked great in it to boot!!!

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

    Gail and I have discussed several times how much we disliked this suit. I think we referred to it as his clown suit. We just got back from seeing it really close and in detail in Memphis. The work on it is fabulous, that's for sure, but it's just too much of a good thing...IMO. Plus...I think that is such a strange neckline for him to wear.

    This an awful jumpsuit its gawdy and vulgar in its flash . The front design makes his stomach look so prominent and swollen . This was definitely an occasion when Elvis was surrounded by yes men . Couldnt one of them have told him how unflattering it was and as for what he is wearing around his neck with it , awful

    Overall, I think jumpsuits didn't look great on Elvis after 1974, but this is the one exception. I love this suit, and I think it goes great with who he was at the time, and I always thought it made him look thinner.
