Elvis-Jumpsuit Trendsetter

Sat May 10, 2003 5:23 pm

I remember when Elvis first donned a jumpsuit in the '69 Vegas shows. We had never seen anything like it. Soon after- other celebrities were wearing jumpsuits- Sammy Davis Jr. and The Osmonds come to mind. I know there were others. Elvis set the trend for entertainers with the jumpsuit. What other entertainers do you remember following Elvis' jumpsuit look?

David Cassidy wore jumpsuits ( he had a fringe suit similar to the one Elvis had in T.T.W.I.I. ) in late 1970 and 1971.

Mick Jagger used jumpsuits during the Summer 1972 tour.

That's the one I can remember apart the others mentioned above.

Freddy Mercury (Queen), lots of the Motown disco bands (Earth, Wind & Fire)..... come to think of it: very much bands and artists were dressed in jumpsuits (some even with "Elvis style" jewels on it).... He really set a trend with that :D

Elvis may have given the inspiration for jumpsuits but Country stars had been wearing similarly outlandish stage costumes for years.
