Greg's Flame Suit

Emily Marie Palmer

This was Greg’s first suit, and one of his favorites. He explains the process of order- ing a jumpsuit: "Elvis had nearly 100 unique jumpsuits from 1969 to 1977. I have several favorites, and I bought the ones I did based on personal preference, price, availability, year it was used by Elvis, and whether any other ETA in-marker owned one, etc. There are about 5 companies that make Elvis outfits. Once you’ve chosen a suit, and a company, you take about 24 body measurements, and make a downpayment. They then customize a pattern to fit, apply all the embellishments like studs and stones etc., and you wait 3-6 months for a finished suit.”
