    I think the particular picture of it you chose adds to the effect, but hilarious, who knew Elvis had a mini-me!

    he only used it in vegas ---glad he never used it again..its thumbs to the penguin suit but thumbs in a nice way -all of elvis other stage outfits were fantastic-dunno why he choose to use this penguin outfit for a concert not the proper suit to wear for that time 75- considering how elvis looked at the time in aug 75 made him look bigger than he really was

    Agreed, very unflattering suit.
    If your an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary....
    If your not, no explanation is possible!

    Elvis wearing a penguin suit..... I've never heard it referred to as that but that picture I can see how it is appropriate. That is too funny.......

    well its very slightly different looking-almost identical -still its one ugly suit certainly not asuit that should be used to give a concert in-again at that time in mid aug 75 elvis should of been using 2 piece outfits like he did in his april - early may 75 tours -whatever its called penguin its a thumbs come to think of it heres another outfit im not too fond of worn in 75-76-another to his suit-well what really counts is that elvis put on a great show -i mean i never got to see elvis in concert-so really even if elvis came out in a batman outfit i would of been real happy to see him he was the greatest

    Thank you for the correction Matt. Now I can see the difference.

    I agree also........I think the most beautiful jumpsuit Elvis ever wore was the Aloha jumpsuit.He looked good no matter what he was wearing,but the Aloha jumpsuit.......God!When he walked on stage he was a dream!

    I am sorry for calling the jumsuit Pinguin No wonder I made people laugh here.........PENGUIN,PENGUIN,PENGUIN.I'll get it right next time.

    I love the white suit that he wore in The 68 Comeback Special.
    America has contributed four things to the world that are really unique: Baseball, Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and Elvis Presley. And only one of them is human - - Jerry Hopkins - "Elvis" - A Biography.

    I like the Penguin suit. But then again I also love the gypsy suit. It's one of my favourites.

    I heard that Elvis used the so-called Penguin Suit because he was late for the show and he did'nt have enough time to change into a jumpsuit... I agree that hee doesn't look too great in it, but still it's a nice looking suit and the fact that Elvis only wore it once on-stage makes it kind of a classic... don't you think ?
    Still, about the reason he wore the suit, correct me if i'm wrong... it may be just a story.

    It is fortunate that he only wore this suit on stage once (that we know of anyway)...definitely not a favorite of mine!!
