WOW. Great pictures, what a hunk of a man Elvis was. Two things that instantly stand out. Firstly, that has got to be the last time he was that tanned! Also, I thought the last time he wore that belt was in the summer of 1972. Amazing to see him wearing it in the later summer of 1973 because to be frank, I didn't think it would still fit him.

Awesome pictures! thanks for posting! :) Must say though that Elvis looks damn bloated around the waistline. Bigger than he looked on stage that season.

Assuming doc is correct on the date, a liitle more than a year after thevMSG press conference and the belt is so tight that it no longer drops ie when he lifts the belt it in response to the shy humble country boy question. No longer possible. That surprised me.

Any belt may be adjusted.

Doc you may be right but iirc correctly from my visit to graceland this one was sized fixed by the brass plates. I suppose he could have taken a plate off but that didnt seem the general direction of things. I needo find a photo of the belt itself.

Tom was always weird looking and overly hairy. Elvis on the other hand was much more attractive with his chiseled features like a statue.

Your posts are creepy. What in the hell is wrong with you? Dear, sweet Green, Green Grass of Home, Elvis Presley was a human being, NOT a deity.

I'm speechless..
Actually I'm not: How and when did you manage to obtain that jacket?? Personally I don't particularly like it, but I wouldn't say no to having it my collection!

I find these pictures fascinating. I'd love to hear (or even better, see) a recording of that Tom Jones concert. I wonder if anyone in the audience had a camera rolling..

Your jacket looks just fantastic. What about that necklace and the belt? Did they also belong to Elvis?

Thanks for the comments Doc and the Fool. Yes the turquoise necklace was Elvis' and The source I'd just soon remain confidential on. Both the shirt and the pants were made by I.C Costume company and I've was fortunate to get documentation from Bill Belew on them. The turquoise belt was purchased Gil back in December of 1977. Thanks for the nice comments

Thanks for pointing these out! Great to see and to confirm Elvis did speak with the Jones audience. I suspect he might be discussing Karate in the last shot:
