    Question Have you a favorite Jumpsuit?

    I didn't know that Elvis had a lot of jumpsuits... I've seen pics of almost all of them and I believe they are just great: pure Elvis' style. I love many of the king's costumes, but my favorite is the Blue Nail Jumpsuit (1972) Elvis looks stunning! And if we talk about costumes, I guess that the black leather one from the 68 Come Back Special has a very good place... just like that 50s sexy lam? suit (by the way, is true what some people say about Elvis didn't like this golden suit???).
    Let the stars fade and fall, and I won't care at all, as long as I have you.

    Sun King..

    I like the Mexican Sundial Suit and although many may not agree, he wore it in a time that his voice sounded magnificent and he definitely was a better Sun King than Louis the 14th from France..

    Many 'Snowflakes'

    I have many favourites but the one I'm taking quite a liking to of recent times is quite a rare one (I think), and it's the 'Snowflakes' jumpsuit.

    Well now you are talking my thing!!!!!

    It's a very difficult choice, but for me the jumpsuits from 1971-72 are my personal favourites e.g.

    White Pyramid
    Black Matador
    White Matador
    Black Pyramid
    Double Porthole
    Blue Nail

    and the list goes on, the design is very similar for this time period with a lot of studs and portholes on either side of the v shape of the chest and collars.

    I also like the Phoenix Jumpsuits, all three look great and I think you are hard pushed to find a bad picture of Elvis in them in 1975.

    Since ya'll are such crazy Elvis fans, like me, you probably already know this...but did ya'll know that Elvis wore tall collars on his shirts, jackets, jumpsuits, etc. b/c he felt like his neck looked too long?? Interesting huh?! Hehe!

    And...the 68 Comeback Special leather outfit was made by the same person who made ALL of his jumpsuits years later.

    That photo from TTWII wearing the concha suit is stunning. If there was a better looking man then EP, it would have been hard to believe. This is coming from a happily married man.
