    This jumpsuit is downright hideous. Easily the worst jumpsuit EP ever wore.

    I think that's a bit harsh, the Prehistoric Jumpsuits are fighting for that position

    I like that suit. Elvis should have worn more black suits instead of all the white ones. It may have been a bit too much color, but it's still a nice suit. Especially when you watch super8 clips of the king wearing this suit it looks very good (better then on pictures).

    In my opinion the one that challenges this jumpsuit for title of the worst ever would be the V-Neck Jumpsuit.

    They are certainly in the top five most unflattering Jumpsuits

    i absolutely hated this suit when i first saw pictures of it. but having come back to this thread after a while, it has really grown on me. i reckon it's one of those things that just need a bit of time to be appreciated, and i suppose you'll never really know the effect of it, good or bad, unless you actually saw elvis in it. but anyway, i really don't mind it now. in some of the pictures, elvis looks pretty amazing.

    Latest update on this suit: during my meeting with Gene Doucette on January 12th he declared this suit was originally called the "Eskimo Totem Pole".

    sure, he is a bit chubby there in the ones from December, but good pics, which i ahve not seen before. i ahve the show Dinner at Eight from these pics, and it is quite a decent show. I have footage from the August 18 show,and he put ona pretty **** good show, good version of Polk Salad Annie,and powerful version of How Great Thou Art

    BTW, although not the best of his suits, it is pretty cool design, i don't mind it

    jumpsuit

    I absolutley love this particular suit! It is truly beautiful to look at, especially when you see it live. In 1975 at Long Island, New York, I saw Elvis in this suit. It is really great looking in concert!

    That's why he still keep singing a song
