    It's a very hard question and sorry but I don't have a answer

    I like many jumpsuits and I can't choose just one.

    Of course I like the American Eagle but I can say I have favourite YEARS for jumpsuits they are 1970, 1972, 1974....every jumpsuit of these years is marvellous

    The years I like less are the last ones 1976, 1977...jumpsuits are too decorated for my personal tastes and I've never liked the Mexican Sundial...maybe because it reminds me his last concert period....too sad

    The Aloha Jumpsuit. That was a work of art. The belt and the cape were gorgeous, also.

I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    I will have to go with the Aloha suit. That's what he was wearing the night I got a kiss and a scarf, so that's my obvious favorite. Aside from that...I love the fringe one and I also like the one from 1970 that had all the pearls around the neck. It's the one he's wearing on the cover of "On Stage."

    I agree with you hgs262626. I really liked the first karate suits too although not my favorites. My favorites are: The Fringe, Lace and Concho.

    I have a few favorites . In no particular order:

    - Black Conquistador Jumpsuit (1972)
    - Snowflake Jumpsuit (1973)
    - Blue Starburst Jumpsuit aka Blue Target (1973/74)
    - Black Spanish Flowers (1973/74)
    - Concha jumpsuit (1970)
    - Lava jumpsuit (1973/74)

    I don't really care for the Thunderbird jumpsuit (1972/73). Don't like the design that much.

    The Indian Feather suit is my favourite but there is no doubting the iconic stature of the Aloha suit

    My hands down favorite would have to be the one i call the tiger jumpsuit.It has a Bengal tiger i believe on it. It has great color after all these years.And i like tigers,because they are wild and unpredictable like Elvis.

    You are right cameron...Elvis didn't care for the fringe suit....he complained that the fringes kept getting tangled up on him all the time when he was doing his stage moves.

    As for my favorite jumpsuit...although it's certainly not the most ornate suit that Elvis wore, I have always liked the Rainbow suit, with the Peacock suit coming in a close second!!!

    Not my favorite aspect of Elvis fandom I prefer the two piece suits and the 1968- 69 loook the best , but back to the question I thought the one from Aloha was great with the cape.

    I think the "sundial" or "aztec" suit is very cool too even though its associated with the end. Just looking at the suit in the exhibition this past summer and being able to see it so close and see the work that went into it made me appreciate that one.
