    Description

    Elvis Presley Owned/Worn Blue-Wash Denim Suit (The Tony Alamo of Nashville, late 1960s-70s). This is far from just any seventies-style leisure suit! Offered here is one that was proudly worn by Elvis Presley in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but by its condition, not excessively. It's in terrific shape from the large pointed collar to the wide bell-bottoms. Besides the Tony Alamo label, on the jacket inside pocket is another label, "Custom Tailored for Elvis Presley". According to Ed Parker, President of the International Kenpo Karate Association, this was one of several Tony Alamo suits that Elvis owned. Parker became acquainted with Elvis after Presley attended one of his demonstrations. The two quickly became friends, with Parker instructing Elvis in karate intermittently for the rest of Presley's life, and accompanying him on tours as a bodyguard. When Parker admired this particular suit, Elvis gave it to him. In Very Fine condition. LOA from Ed Parker.
