    Re: Knot Jumpsuit (aka) White Tassel Jumpsuit (1971)

    I have to agree with Elain.
    In the video you can see that there are definitely small fringes that are hanging down from Elvis' arms.

    In the suit shown in Graceland there are no fringes on the arms.
    See the picture I took when it was on display.

    Which means that there is yet another suit that DOES HAVE fringes hanging down from the arms.

    So it would definitely be interesting to see that film that Elain has. It makes me at least very curious about it.

It looks like the material hanging from his arms and legs are too thick to be the fringe from the knott suit, but that could just be the quality of pix.

    Mom's film was taken by a friend of hers, I think in Texas, in Feb/Aug 70. On that film the "tassles" were actually fur, and it looked oddly like Elvis had a bunch of rabbit's foots hanging from the arms and legs. The photographer had also taped the show and Elvis stopped to talk about the jumpsuit. He said these were "ermine tips" on the jumpsuit. So we referred to the suit in the film as the Ermine Tip suit. I have never seen photos of this suit on display at Graceland. The Knott suit is on display and clearly the fringe is NOT ermine fur tips. So the Ermine Tip suit is not listed in this gallery, not on display in Graceland (as far as I know), and doesn't seem to have been photographed other than that film, which is short. I believe I still have the film but it will be a while before I can get it to DVD. Some of the photos in this thread look like they could be of the Ermine suit and not of the Knott suit (but that could just be do to the poor quality of the pix).

    looks like I was wrong. I searched through some old photos and found I also took a few photos from the side. And I was able to see the tassles hanging from the side.
    So the 1971 live footage is the same suit as was on display in Graceland.

    However the suit Elain is mentioning is then still unknown.
