    The problem with these two-piece suits is that you can't really name them. You can only describe them. The suit on the picture you've posted is a white two-piece with red pocket flaps, flower shirt, red "Russian Eagle Belt" and there ought to be a red line cape with it.

    Does anyone have any known dates for this jumpsuit? I have footage of this but I am trying to determine the date. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I always loved the two piece outfits he should have worn them more . I certainly think they would have been more flattering post summer 75

    At 225 pounds the two-pieces would NOT have been flattering.....

    If he wore them loosely, it might have worked

    I could never understand why RCA didnt use some pics of Elvis in these two piece outfits on some of the album covers in the 70s . Whether from 72 or 75 . The covers of Elvis albums in the 70s began to look so much the same with Elvis always in a jumpsuit that to the casual buyer they would think a lot were the same album . These outfits apart from looking great would have made the albums more distinguisable from one another .

    Two-piece suits look unusual. He had a little numder of them. What a pity! I think he should have worn then more often!
