    The above pics hve both flower and mermaid designs. Could it be that the native flower suit and the mermaid suit are the same suit? (Perhaps Leroy could shed some light on this one?)

    Them Jumpsuits sure add on the pounds. He looks so much better in this Image. But I think a lot of black artist' where already using it at the time.
    Then again other artist' copied the Elvis jumpsuit image after he made it popular so maybe Elvis should have stuck with this image.

    I wonder if this was one them times he didn't have time to change and went on stage after exiting the plane.

    .i have to say thumbs to this 2 pieve disaster of a suit or whatever it is..i dont like it..it would of been more fitting for elvis to use this outfit to go from hotel to hotel before the tours boarding his plane etc...but not onstage..anyways just my honest opinion ...i would add this leather suit and the v-neck puffy sleve jumpsuit worn in late 75 and in 76.as my pics for the ugliest jumpsuits elvis used onstage,,3rd ugliest suit would be the penguin outfit used in august 75 in vegas..what the heck was elvis thinking wearing these onstage..plus all these 3 outfits i mentioned made him look bad..as elvis weight prob was really starting to show in late 74 not the proper suits to use at the time

    If you look closely at some of these pics you can see the outline of the corset that Elvis began wearing to disguise his fat.

    A) Elvis wasn't fat.. especiall NOT in 1974.
    B) There wasn't a corset involved. What you see is just the top of his pants. It's leather, so it's thick material and that shows......

    Itīs not his best looking suit,but not his worst either.
    I think the Puff sleve suit is among the worst jumpsuits he had.

    What about the story Elvis tells before "Cant Help Falling in Love" (I think on the FTD August '74 Vegas ITS MIDNIGHT). He talks about "the style of dress" someone (cousin?) made for him?

    I don't have the CD with me today but I always assumed he was talking about the 2 piece Leather suits....what WAS he talking about if indeed these were made by North Beach Leather in L.A???

    That was just a joke of him Brad. During another concert Elvis kept the show short explaining that he didn't sleep much the night before. When the crowd kinda roared he said: "Hey... I was up all night making this suit!"

    The leather two-piece suits that he wore in Las Vegas are hand made by North Beach Leather.
