E-Cat wrote:There is one thing however, which may be of interest: there are no pics of Elvis in short pants. Elvis must have been very aware of how he looked like those days, in fact it looks as if he was ashamed to expose himself even to his friends.

You guys aren't gonna believe this, but ............ that hat has been around on the EP-Owned market for a very long time; it was one of the pieces that often never sold thru auction (it didn't help that the asking price was equally "goofy"). Provenance, I believe, by Billy Smith (off the top of my head, no pun intended, ......... but would have to double-check).
Seriously, though, ........ another endearing quality of EP's was his no hang-ups attitude about wearing regular ol' store bought off-the-shelf clothing items (even in '77). Don't forget, ..... this was a vacation and these very private photos with the "hat" were just that - private. A very intimate glimpse as to the real Elvis of '77 .... on a number of levels.
N880EP wrote:Incidently, ........... can you guys imagine EP window shopping, out in the open, like a regular ol' guy, at Ala Moana (which is a huge open-air mall in Honolulu near the beach) ............. and other local Mom-n-Pop type stores around Oahu ??!!?? Unbelievable stuff, especially for '77.

I think his lifestyle, worry, depression and the other things that plagued him probably were more harmful to his appearance, and the reason the bags around his eyes came back so quickly.
I think the perhaps the biggest worry around this time was his finances. With the bodyguard lawsuits, the failed racketball venture, diminishing royalties etc etc, Elvis had very little money, and huge expenses. This, along with his poor diet, lack of excercise, and drug issues would have made any man look 10 years older.
