He looks great in his black suit with Frank Sinatra in 1960 and I like him in his army clothes as well
I like Elvis style of clothing, i love to see him on TTWII, he used so cool clothes there
Taking Care of BusinessTil we meet you again, may God bless you, Adios.
I loved Elvis clothing from the 70s best. It had style, flamboyance, panache', character and more.My favorites were the red shirt he wore in TTWII, and the outfit he wore while singing "Always On My Mind", I think it was in Elvis On Tour. The early jumpsuits were fine, but I really love the later ones, like the Aloha From Hawaii and Mexican Sundial. I just wish I owned a pair of Elvis style glasses.
does anyone know if Elvis had any input in what design a new one would have ....or did he leave it entirely to the guy that made the suits ??
I heard something today that seemed to suggest Elvis decided the new design..... Thanks ....
If Priscilla has said anything to the contrary then it is pure fabrication, Bill Belew would send sketches for Elvis' approval and little or no changes were made from the original sketches!
Any input given was by Elvis and Elvis alone; if any!
Vulcandude: You say you have known Priscilla for a long time? can you please elaborate and tell us when you have met her etc.
Thanks, guys ......that's as clear as mud .
Somewhere I heard/read that Elvis sent different "messages" with the designs on his suits. I'd heard that before.....but, never really asked anyone that knew that much about the jumpsuits.
IF you all come to a conclusion....just holler . TYVM...
To simply say that you know Priscilla is a "Big Deal" if you do know her and you speak to her on a regular basis I am sure that you will be able to give details to back up what you are saying! I am sure that you be aware that people have in the past made similar claims and haven't been able to back up what they say?
If you are on speaking terms and she divulges this kind of information it is something we would All like to hear.
I am not having a go or singling you out, I am simply curious to know more of this relationship and any further insights, photo's or proof of such meetings or phone calls that you have had.
To simply say "Nuff said" isn't very insightful.
Is it because this is an older post that the "attached thumbnails" won't show? I've clicked on them & nothing. Anyway, it seems that with Elvis - the flashier the better. There would be nothing "simply elegant" in his closet. It would always have his touch - flash. Personally, I love the elegant tuxedo he wore on the Frank Sinatra show - wow! I also love the brown suit he wore - especially when he wore it sans blouse - that just screams pure sex. [IMG]ret69copy[/IMG]
(tried to paste a photo, didn't come through!)
So what you are saying is that Priscilla would talk to you about Elvis on a personal level?
I am not calling you a liar, I simply find it incredulous that a woman of Priscilla's position communicates with someone from this board who in other threads asks questions I would have thought of as common knowledge.
I will leave this issue alone unless required to respond!
you know, i havent been following this from the start, and i admit that i dont know alot about EP, but i do know this much... this is a place for discussing EP and other such topics, in this case, his clothes, and i know from previous forum experiences, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and this is exactly what is being said / done here. Someone spoke their opinion, and added an additional comment to it, and when asked to back it up, became defensive about it. It is my humble opinion that if a member doesnt wish to divulge information, he should be respected for that, not shunned, as for some of the other things said, we should all be friends here, not enemies, and this place will grow through friendship, not bitterness
i have now said my piece, and i am not trying to flame anyone here, so if i offended any one, i am sorry ahead of time
Check out this sound file from an interview in 1973.....
"Don't tamper with the property of the U.S. Male"
I'm pretty sure that if you did know Priscilla and LMP you would have a photograph or some sort of proof, this does not mean you are divulging information or breaking trust, just adding credibility. If I offend you by asking for proof I am sorry but "That's The Way It Is"
