Nope, you're not the only one. I don't care for them either.
Too casual, too plain, too ordinary, ........... too common (....for ELVIS, that is...). The jumpsuits were generally much better. I'm glad Elvis didn't wear the two-piece suits very long. It's easy to criticize the jumpsuits from the perspective of 2003, but ........................ come on, it WAS the 70's ......... and they WERE pretty COOL then. I think the jumpsuits are so derided now because of all of the seam bulging impersonators who are wearing them.
If you ever see the jumpsuits in comparison to the two-piece suits in real life ............... the latter do seem rather boring. The jumpsuits are very impressive in reality and I don't think any photos (even some of the best) can ever really convey that. In fact, I've found myself liking some of the jumpsuits after viewing them in person - ones that I never really cared for based solely upon photos.
The 70's Elvis is my favorite era and the jumpsuits are certainly one of the reasons why.
...just a fan....
