    What is your favourite jumsuit?

    I love these suits:

    - Bicentennial White (my most favourite, with Inca Belt)
    - Inca Gold Leaf
    - American Eagle (but only with Aloha belt&#33
    - Indian Feather
    - Aloha Suit


    (Blackmore - Gillan - Glover - Lord - Paice)
    Sweet child in time
    you?ll see the line
    line that?s drawn between
    good and bad
    see the blind man
    shooting at the world
    bullets flying taking toll
    If you?ve been a bad
    oh Lord I bet you have
    and you?ve not been hit
    by flying led
    you?d better close your eyes
    you?d better bow your head and
    wait for the ricochet

    I've always liked this suit. Elvis looked very good and happy during those May, June and July tours in 1975

    And how about the 'Light Blue Grass' with the matching cape? I'm a big fan of those suits with capes. Have you ever seen an artists that close from being a Superman?

    I liked the 69 Black suit ..and the "Fringe" suit - most of the others - I know I'm going out on limb here, but most of the others just put me off.

    I'm in my little Corner- so lay off

    mind you by 77 he should have been wearing something a bit more lose fitting

    That 'Flame Suit' is one of the few jumpsuits that I 'hate', it makes Elvis look bloated and unhealthy white. Perhaps it also has to do with the particular period that Elvis wore that suit. It might be a much better looking suit when he would have worn it in '72 or '74?

    I think you are right Albert...personally i like the suit alot...but it never flattered Elvis during the period he wore it - though some pictures look better than others

    I'm sure it would have looked great had he have worn it earlier.

    I'm not a jumpsuit expert and I don't know all their names...I think the one I like is called the Red Ladder jumpsuit... and I like one he wore with the peacocks on it...I don't like the light blue one he wears in clips I've seen from Elvis On Tour and I don't like the all red one I've seen him in--he's like lying on the stage floor with it on...

    See...I'm not an expert with the names

    NightRider, I love that one of him with the tiger leaping across you posted--I've never seen it before

    The Blue Swirl from 1973 is simply amazing!!
    The home movies from "Return to Splendour" in this suit are awesome.


    Also great,The black Spanish flower,and that very cool Dragon suit.

    GREAT QUESTION!!

    Actually, a couple of my favorite jumpsuits are ones which aren't as spectacular as most of Elvis' jumpsuits (although they are ALL fantastic!&#33

    I like the TODAY jumpsuit (see my avatar)!!

    I also like the RAINBOW suit, as well as the RAINDROP suit!! (No, I really don't have a thing for rain!&#33

    I also like the DARK BLUE SUIT WITH THE WHITE PHOENIX. The one he wore on the cover of AFTERNOON IN THE GARDEN is also a pretty cool jumpsuit!

    Just a couple of my favorites...

    TCB!

    YES! Another favorite of mine as well ---> The Blue Rainfall.

    Graceland has just recently revealed another hitherto unseen jumpsuit that is very similar, it has Multi-Colored Stones in a rainfall pattern (with cape). Beautiful!

    My favorite jumpsuit is the Blue Nail suit that was featured in Elvis on Tour.
