Elvis Fashions

Elvis king of Fashion 1950s – 1970s  Elvis loved to buy clothes. He shopped at Lansky Brothers in Beale Street that specialized 1950s fashion styles in loud trends such as yellow suits, pink sports coats and white shoes. Elvis loved high collars and capes were reminiscent of his childhood comic book hero Captain Marvel

As a fashion icon Elvis, was the Lady Gaga of his day, wearing outlandish garb one day and seeing it become street fashion the next. Before Elvis,  no  guy would think of wearing a pink shirt, a white belt and pink socks. The king wore handmade fashion, gold lame suits  and TCB custom-made jewelry.   Elvis wore his hair long before it was fashionable. As for jeans, Mr. Kern said, “denim reminded Elvis of being poor, so he did not wear denim as an adult.”
