    Got it Leroy and I apologize for not understanding the first time. I do appreciate what you and Matt are doing and I'm sure lots of other people do too. You both have every reason to be proud of your site. There is none to compare with it!

    I thought I had a pretty good eye for detail and was so proud of myself that I could identify every jumpsuit and almost every year they were worn but Leroy you go way beyond that with the mikes, jewelry etc. I'm surprised that you can't tell the year from the tilt of Elvis' head. You are great and your renditions are fantastic.

    My thanks to both you and Matt for the best Elvis jumpsuit site there is out there.

    Boy my timing has been way off lately! Here I was trying to make you feel better and appreciated and you get this post from a sick individual who's probably a failed artist and is jealous of your work. Don't let that person get you down. Sticks and stones you know........

    IMO There's Too much of the I hate (fill in the blank) stuff in here lately. Its turning into the I hate forum instead of the TCB world Elvis forum its all about how many people Elvis had in his life people now hate forum . Bummer because this place has a lot of people with good info and resources to offer each other besides hate.

    Elvis was always the coolest guy when it comes about fashion, since his early days in Memphis when people thinked of him as a weird guy or to much on the black side of the town, stuff that latter became the fashion among teenagers till the early 60?s, british 60's rockers where not only influenced by Elvis music, but they were influences by his looks, the kind of clothes he wear. THen in the 70's he impossed fashion among rockers, one about extreme stage clothes, his attire looked totally unsusual in 1969 and in 1970 when he showed us his first Jumpsuits, by the mid 70's even Mick Jagger copied, "note by note" the style of Elvis early 70's jumpsuits (during The Stones '74 Tous Mick used an hybrid between: "the King of Spades" one and The "I Got Lucky one). In 71' he started using capes, years later, many artist where into that. What about the glasses, the heavy belts, somehow Elvis aways managed to take te various elements of the current fashions, combined them in peculiar way so he looked utlra cool, but yet, not following the fads as everybody, but imposing one. Here are some pics:

    50s fancy clothes were awesome. And were very important (the moment) for the young people dressing style. Also, those 70s jumpsuits are unique.

    Funny ... I started a similar poll some time ago in another forum

    I am equally intrigued by Elvis style in all decades ... each has its specific characteristics and appeal ... I have a general tendency towards the 60ies though ...

    As fas as Elvis is concerned I distinguish between ...

    1. the 50ies - Rocker -Style



    2. the slick 60ies




    3. the Big-Daddy-Flash-Style of the 70ies

    ... 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 ... so I keep singing a song ...

    "The Big-Daddy-Flash-Style of the 70ies" I like how it sounds.

    Yep, I love the '70's. Maybe, it's because that's when I met him..
    He looked good in the '68 special though .......
