I have a 1961-ish feeling. But I´m no expert.

Memphis 1960 would be my guess

Between January and March 1958 is my guess.

If that's not post-army, I'm kissing somebody's ass.

I've been in a couple of discussions about the main photo in OP's post, and the general feeling is that it's probably March 12, 1960.
Here's a couple from the same day.

It is in 'The Elvis Files Vol. 2' as being from Christmas Day 1957 but in the series of photos which are from 25-12-57 Elvis has slightly different attire.

You better start applying the lip gloss, Rob.

There was a long discussion or two in the past that these shots were from 12-25-1957, based on the outfit, but eventually the general consensus was these were from late February - early March 1958.

My current feeling is they are from mid-March 1958, in Los Angeles, just before he left for Memphis on the evening of the 12th. See the photos below to note the very similar appearance in all of them.

Given his extra-spiffy tuxedo with cummerbund, and the preponderance of photos taken -- Elvis is clearly making an entrance -- this may be a movie premiere or some kind of Paramount function. It would be cool to find out once and for all what the heck this was!
