The supplied photos and footage show a different jacket!
Elvis had jackets with brownish pocket, red, green and blue. NEVER golden pockets.
The photos with the belt with the faces is the green jacket which is shown in the booklet Jumpsuit all acces.
The footage shows the light blue 3 piece which is currently on display in Vegas.
Also if you look closely you can see the cut of the jacket is slightly different.
Another clever forgery. Same as the 200,000 US concho suit that was never used in the film ttwii and was also sold by Juliens and was an 80s reproduction.
It is your money to spend, but I would think twice, before I say it's alright.

Lately the market has been flooded with forgeries. And since it's very hard to claim that it is genuine (or not genuine) once it's sold it can't hurt to do extra research.
Recently a suit was withdrawn from the auction because authenticity couldn't be garanteed.
I am glad you shared some of your insights about this piece.
