The second belt to the "American Indian" (also known as the "Memphis Indian" or "Indian Feather") suit. Elvis wore the suit from the Spring of 1975 through the Spring of 1977, and this belt was worn from around October 1976 through the Spring of 1977

The "His Masters Voice" beltbuckle on the Blue Rainbow Suit, also known as the Blue Swirl Suit. This suit was worn by Elvis Presley while touring during 1974-76 and was once worn in a concert in Fort Worth, Texas. It is one of many on display at Sincerly Elvis at Graceland in Memphis, Tenn. Star-Telegram/by Ben Noey Jr.

Original long Aloha cape for sale January 1 2011  
  
  
The original LONG cape made for Elvis's Aloha TV show, is for sale once again. From ebay: "In terms of authentic iconic Elvis items, it does not get much better than this! This is THE ORIGINAL cape which was made for Elvis to wear for the legendary "Aloha from Hawaii" Concert in January, 1973. This cape was designed by Elvis' designer Bill Belew so that when Elvis came on stage, he could be "hidden" behind the long cape. The idea was that Elvis would appear on stage for this world-first event, behind the cape and at the end of the Space Oddysey, he would drop the cape and turn to face the audience, revealing himself to the waiting crowd. 
When Bill Belew arrive in Hawaii with this magnificent 5 foot long cape, Elvis tried it on and almost tumbled over backward as he tried to walk. It was decided that for the concert itself, a shorter version of this design should be used. Bill Belew then had only 24 hours to make a new cape. This cape was then sent back to Graceland and remained there, in its archives until the charity auction held in 1999. This cape represents not only the single most significant live performance ever by Elvis, but also the ultimate in authenticity and provenance. I purchased this cape from the successful bidder at the Graceland Archives auction, so in effect, I am only its 3rd owner ever! You could be it's 4th!

As most people know, this cape and it's design are significant (not only because of it's place in history) but also because the design of the eagle and the colours were to represent Elvis' passion and patriotism for his own country."

Asking price is 250,000.00 $AU or 255,000.00 $US

'Elvis and Ali' their story in photos: Two of the US’s most well-known icons - “the King of Rock ’n’ Roll” and “the Greatest” - meet at the James A. Michener Art Museum beginning this Saturday and running through May 15. They will be spotlighted in “Ali and Elvis: American Icons,” featuring two photography exhibitions: the Smithsonian’s “Elvis at 21” and art2art’s “Muhammad Ali: The Making of an Icon.”With “Elvis at 21” freelance photojournalist Alfred Wertheimer was hired by RCA Victor in 1956 to shoot promotional images of recently signed 21-year-old recording artist Elvis Presley. Wertheimer’s instincts were to “tag along” with the artist after the assignment and the resulting images provide us with a look at Elvis before he exploded onto the scene and became one of the most exciting performers of his time.Wertheimer had unparalleled access and documented Elvis on the road, backstage, in concert, in the recording studio and at home in Memphis, Tenn. “Colonel” Tom Parker, Elvis’ manager, restricted contact just a short time later.



“Muhammad Ali: The Making of an Icon” chronicles the life and times of the now-iconic figure who was simultaneously the most beloved and most reviled man in boxing and who still engenders a strong emotional response from people almost 50 years after his initial rise to public prominence. The exhibit, organized by art2art, provides a glimpse of rarely seen moments of his personal life as well as more famous episodes from his career. These images not only illustrate the enormous changes that he went through — from a patriotic Olympic champion to a draft-resisting member of the Nation of Islam to a figure of racial reconciliation — but also show that Ali’s gregarious, funny and likable personality remained intact even as a super-charged political atmosphere swirled around him.Ali’s story is one of an American hero who has come full circle in the hearts and minds of people throughout the world, and features more than 50 photographs by such distinguished photographers as Annie Leibovitz, Gordon Parks and Art Shay that capture Ali’s positive public image.The James A. Michener Art Museum is located at 138 S. Pine St., Doylestown. Museum hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday, noon-5 p.m. For information, go here

Who is known as the Clothier to the King ?    
 
      
       
 
Elvis called him "Mr. Lansky," but a legion of faithful customers affectionately call him "Mr. B." For more than half a century, Bernard Lansky has held the title, "Clothier to the Stars." His store, located in the lobby of the regal Peabody Hotel in Memphis, continues to supply the Who's Who of entertainment with cool threads.        
Lansky's father owned a traditional used clothing store on Beale Street, but young Bernard marched to the beat of a different drummer. In the 1950's Bernard and his brother, Guy, opened a high-fashion clothing store on Beale Street, and dressed many of the young musicians of Memphis – including a high school student named Elvis Presley. Drawn to the store's wilder fashions, which included lots of bright colors and bold patterns, Elvis told Lansky, "I don't have any money now, but when I get rich I'll buy you out." Lansky replied, "Do me a favor. Don't buy me out, just buy from me."       

Pop culture historians have traced the evolution of the "Elvis style" to this early collaboration with Lansky. Presley's first Lansky purchase was a $3.95 shirt. Later, Presley asked the tailor to create a flashy pink and black ensemble for the junior-senior prom.When Presley became famous, he sought Lansky's help many times. Lansky dressed Elvis for his first appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show." Elvis didn't have the funds to pay for the outfit at the time, but Lansky floated him the loan and thus began a long standing working relationship between the two.

Elvis's patronage proved a boon for the Lansky Brothers. Once the laughingstock of Beale Street, the Lanskys and their way-out fashions became the envy of every clothier in town – even the nation. Bernard became known as "Clothier – and friend – to The King." Lansky referred to Elvis as his "PR man all over the world." Soon, Lansky's little shop was taking orders from pop music royalty including Johnny Cash (who requested a suit with a cutaway coat – all in black, of course!), Frank Sinatra, B.B. King, and Carl "Blue Suede Shoes" Perkins.       
Bernard never forgot who put his little store on the map. Bernard was in Dallas on a shopping trip for his store in August 1977 when he learned that Elvis died. He immediately flew home to Memphis to pay his respects at Graceland. And for his funeral, Elvis was dressed – for a final time – in a Lansky suit.
  
 

Today, dozens of autographed guitars line the ceiling and walls of Lansky's shop at the Peabody. His business partner these days is his son, Hal. Elvis' legendary style and a renewed demand for the superstar look of the 1950's and 1960's prompted the father-and-son team to enter a new venture. In collaboration with Elvis Presley Enterprises, the Lanskys have designed and licensed the "Clothier To The King" fashion collection, which is available worldwide. Described as "The King's look with a 21st-century flair," items include pegged slacks, boxy sport coats, retro-style shirts, and belts – all crafted in fine fabrics with the bright colors and patterns that Elvis wore.        
      

Bernard Lansky – grandfather, storyteller, businessman, and legend among clothiers – still works seven days a week, every week. He loves to share his stories, including one about the day he met a young Elvis Presley – a day that Lansky says, “I was at the right place at the right time, with the right man."

Bill Belew has the distinction of having designed Elvis Presley’s costumes and personal wardrobe from 1968 until his death in 1977. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design in New York, Belew has also designed costumes for a multitude of entertainers, including Lynne Redgrave, Lena Horne, Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Gloria Swanson, Sandy Duncan, Victoria Principal, Pia Zadora, Joan Van Ark, Brooke Shields, Jaclyn Smith, Joan Rivers, Gloria Estefan, Gladys Knight, Roberta Flack and Dionne Warwick, as well as Milton Berle, Doc Severensen among a numerous others. 
 
 
Q : Did Elvis approach you for the 68 Special?  
A : Actually it was Steve Binder who was the producer of the show, and also directed it. He had gathered together a group of us that were from the east. Because he wanted something different than what was being done in Hollywood at that time. And, my first experience working with Steve was on the Petula Clark Special when Petula came to America. We did that special and was received with great applause and accolades from everybody. And so, when Steve was approached to do Elvis, he asked if I would do the wardrobe on it cause he wanted to keep us all together.  
Q : What was your idea for the black leather outfit?  
A : Actually when we started talking about it, Steve said what he wanted literally to do was to base it around a concert, of Elvis and the boys. And he said "What are your thoughts about what he will wear?" And I thought about it and then I said "I've seen him in leather jacket, but I've never seen him in leather". And I said "Why don't we do"--- because at that period, everybody wore denim. I mean, wore blue jeans and denim jackets. And I said "Why don't I have a denim jacket and a pair of jeans". I said "Why don't I take those and I have those copied in black leather?" And Steve said, "I love the idea you said. Will you do a sketch of it?" and I did a sketch for him. And that's how it came about. And, in looking at Elvis, the one thing that struck me when I met him, that he was a very good looking man. And, a lot of things that during the period when I started designing are based upon things that, or periods that I go through in my life. And I've always been a great fan of Napoleon. And when I looked at Elvis, I said he's the one person that I could do the Napoleonic collar with it, because it'll frame his face. And like a lot of things that you do for women, when you're designing their clothes, is to draw your attention to their face. And I thought well if I have the collar up there, people will notice his face and it'll frame it, and however I do it and that's how the collar came about.
