Below are eight of the most striking outfits worn by Elvis in the early 1970s, as shown in Elvis on Tour. Do you have a favourite? Can you ever imagine wearing any of them?

  1. Ack! Jumpsuits! The outfits with jackets and pants are a little better. I guess I’d partial to the purple one in the second photo. I’ve never been a fan of Elvis’ music, but I thoroughly respect his talent and showmanship!

    • These were pretty much all in Vegas so everything was gloriously over the top. And yes, what an icon. And what a voice. Always on My Mind, It’s Now or Never or can’t Help Falling in Love. The others are great too, but always preferred his ballads.
