    there was one that unfinished, but not this jumpsuit you seen on the picture up here...you can check this site :
    http://www.silvesterselvispage.com/j116-1.html

    i dont know the main reason why Elvis keep on wearing mexican sundial suit in most of 1977 concert...somebody here might have better answer to that.

    I dont think elvis would fake his death ,...he loves his family and care for his fans,..no way in heaven he would fake his death ..

    Elvis had alot suits than we thought ... i dont think thats the reason why he kept on having the same suit in 1977,..in fact he wore 4 different suits throughout 1977 incuding Mexican Sundial Suit, King Of Spades, Indian Feather Suit, and Blue Rainfall ..

    thats all for now veronik...

    Its quite hard to understand why Elvis wore the Sundial suit throughout the whole of 1977, there were more than one copy of this suit and lord knows Elvis could have had many copies of other Jumpsuits e.g. King of Spades and other suits from 1976 that surely would have fitted him?

    I certainly don't think that Elvis faked his death, judging by his health at this time it would seem to fit that he did pass away, if Elvis was going to fake his death he could have picked a better time! there are so many people who where around to confirm his death, hospital staff etc. I think it would be quite hard to hide the fact that you were Elvis and hide away, someone would have seen him, its hard to keep a secret that big

    I love the Mexican Sundial Suit. And... Elvis didn't fake his death. I can't believe that.
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    That image of the younger Elvis in the unworn jumpsuit was not created by Wade. Ugly suit though.

    I actually like the sundial suit
    The reason I heard why Elvis wore the Sundial suit over and over was by 1977 it was the only one that fit him
    Since he had his own designer Bill Belew, why didn?t he have Belew make a new suit in '77 ??
    My personal opinion was that Elvis always thought he was going to die young as his mother did and actually gave up on life by ?77 and didn?t bother having any new suits made because he thought his number would be up any day.
    Which of course it was
    As far as that unworn suit goes I think it looks pretty cheap!

    I agree this suit does look cheap the combination of a paisley pattern on top with plain pants just does not look right at all.And the belt looks like something you would see an impersonater wearing.

    Matt, good job on that picture! i've always wondered how Elvis would look in that suit. i must say, if you can, squeeze the legs in a bit, but hey, very good there my friend. i thoroughly enjoyed seeing that

    since you did that, we at FECC have been discussing Elvis in the 2 piece suits of 75 for 77 instead of those jumpsuits. could you put a 1977 Elvis in to a 1975 2 piece suit? fine work man, i am impressed
    sincerely, Scott, a 15 year old Elvis fan

    Elvis wore the sundial suit first at Lake Tahoe in October 1974.

    Here is a great link:

    Wow!! It's funny how the critics come out. Hey "Elvis Fans" if Elvis would have listened to the critics back in the fifties there would have never even been a jumpsuit era. The man was unique give him a bit more respect. GEEEEZ

    re

    I don't like this jumpsuit very much...i don't think it looked good to elvis.
    OK,it was a change of his suits,but that's all...
    He would stopped touring after that final tour and then get himself back on track...I don't think he was getting worry by what he was wearing at that time
    I'd like to go to Graceland

    Punk was just around the corner, let alone the 80's, but I can't see the King in zipper jeans and safety pins!
    The jumpsuits we look back on as being typical '70's wear but one guy started them, one guy could carry them off. No one - NO ONE - dressed like Elvis in the 70's, those suits etc were awesome.
    What he would have worn in the 80's is anyones guess, but whatever it might have been he would have been the first and the only one to really carry it off.
    As for him not "jumping" in 1977, watch him during Hound Dog in the CBS and when he's done shaking the place up, watch his face, man and music as one - sheer delight!

    I actually find watching "Hound Dog" during EIC to be very embarassing......

    Yes, he was too big to try and attempt the Hound Dog moves during EIC. A mere shadow of the former artist, physcially. But the voice was still there.

    I think it's funny what he is doing there with his moves
    But that's my opinion

    I doubt if Elvis could have embarassed me .
    I'm thinking that he woulda/coulda progressed & moved on & changed clothes with the times; but, his incredible voice would always have entranced many folks & he'd still be performing. Just not as grueling a schedule.
    He would be one of those "special acts" music theatres have from time to time.

    Remember; time waits for no one . We're all gonna get "fat & 40" . Who cares??
