    Two-piece black suit

    Some rare photos show Elvis in a two-piece black suit.

    I love that suit. Elvis just looks so cool. I can now see where Prince took Elvis's style and used it in the 1987 concert DVD "Sign 'O' The Times" where he performs "Forever in my Life". Keep in mind Prince wore a hat, I just see Elvis in that performance combined with a whole lot of other musicians

    Great photos.

    This image (below) has also been attributed to the 31st July opening show ...........



    However, I'm not entirely convinced Elvis wore the two piece 'Press Conference' suit during the 31st July show, here's why.

    Firstly, I suggest it unlikely that Elvis would hold an all-conquering press conference after the show in his 'work clothes' from earlier that night.

    Even factoring multiple suits of the same styling, unlikely a star of Elvis' magnitude would wear the same outfit so publicly for two milestone events in the same evening.

    I suggest the two piece suit was specifically for the press conference and subsequently worn on stage and about town after the event.

    Further, being asked during the press conference 'where did you get the design for your stage outfits' (given he'd only performed once publicly thus far) , why would he reply that he got the idea from a karate-gi if he'd performed in a two piece suit that night ?

    What say the experts ?

    I think Elvis actually wore the brown suit to the press conference. Am I wrong?

    There is a passage in Albert Goldman's book that said Elvis began wearing the one-piece suits during the '69 engagement because when he was jumping around the stage the two-piece suits exposed his midriff. So it's possible he did open the engagement in a two-piece.

    i think this is another great costume because like "goodelvisgirl" said, its simple but Elvis really was so stylish, sometimes i dont think he needed all the glitz, because his voice and his presence were enoug hto blow any audience away, with the dazzling jumpsuits or without Elvis is still the king!
    Life is beautiful, enjoy every second of it!! And don't forget to love!!
