He never looked batter than 1968 in the black leather.

I voted for the Hawaii Jumpsuit -for two reasons
1.because I get the feeling that nearly everyone else is going to vote for the black leather.
2.As much as I like black leather and as good as Elvis looked in that outfit - it had been done before; Gene Vincent the early Beatles - its a rock cliche. A man wearing black leather doesn't do anything for me -not unless Im wearing it that is.
The Jumpsuits are Elvis trademark. They are no longer considered uncool.
Who was there before Elvis who wore an outfit like that? The Aloha jumpsuit is one of the best examples so I've voted for that even though given a choice of clothing to wear I'd go for the black stuff everytime.

I agree with what you say Paul. But the question was from a visual perspective. (What looked best, not what was more original)
I also like the Aloha suit and had to think about it for a while.

I'd still go for the aloha jumpuit Sam as its a visual spectacle in its own right.
