    what is this suit

    i bought a new Elvis book and it has 3 pics of him onstage in this suit. I've listed it down as two piece leather with studs down front in the 1974 section.

    I've never seen pics of Elvis onstage in this suit. Only a couple of candid shot in it.

    It's not in the jumpsuit section can someone tell me what this suit is called.

    Yes, its one of the two piece leather suits known as the Wine Glass due to the motif on the chest looking like a wine glass
