Wow, what a pic! I'm guessing 1954.

Elvis has got a perm, it may be circa 1952-53. Or it could be Oct 1955 (had a perm then, too).

Elvis wears what looks to be the same shirt as on the RCA photo-session on December 1, 1955 so my guess would be that the photo is from the fall of 1955.

Great catch! I believe it's the same shirt.

I didn’t notice it's the shirt Elvis wore at the RCA photo session on December 1, 1955.

Thank you bripet56.

I was thinking '53 or '54 too.

Thank you Joe Car.

Brian, if you compare both shirts you will notice that these are completely different, so not from Dec 1 1955.

I wasn't at home when answering this post so I just went from my mind.
I wouldn't say that the two shirts are completely different E-Cat. I believe you're referring to the collar which looks to be extended out to the shoulder in the "phone-booth" photo. This however is not the case. It's an inlay in the shirt in the same colour as the collar.
The difference in the space between the black (at least in these b/w photos) dots could be due to the angle.
It's hard to tell if it's the exact same shirt or just a similar one but I never meant for the photo to be from Dec 1, 1955. Only that it was (looks like) the shirt from Dec 1.

Sincerely

The difference in space between the black dots looks very different to me. I am not sure if it is explained by the angle you referred to.
But I agree with your assumption that the photo is from the fall of 1955.

It's hard to tell E-Cat but I can see your point with the space between the dots.
As you can see in the enclosed photo the black dots do not continue up on the shoulders. There's an inlay that I suspect continues out on the shoulder. I don't think the collar in the photo-booth photo stretches out all the way to the end of the shoulder. I mean, nobody could make such an ugly collar on a shirt.

So it is from 1955? I might be completely wrong but this looks like it was taken in 1953 due to how young he looks and the fact that he did have a perm back then.

My guess is October 1955.
