Elvis Aaron Presley (Jan 8, 1935 – Aug 16, 1977), also known mononymously as Elvis, was an American singer and actor. Known as the “King of Rock and Roll”, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. Presley’s energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, brought both great success and initial controversy.

The “Black Two-Piece” suit has a black jacket with a high collar, considerably higher than the collar on the “Herringbone” outfits. The jacket has one buttonhole on each side of the opening and closed with cufflinks. There is also a black sleeve button on each side of the sleeves. The first time Elvis used this suit was in the early hours of August 1st 1969 at the famous press conference after the opening show. And at this conference he used simple black pants with high waist. When Elvis wore this suit on stage, he usually wore pants with red leg insert, and he rarely used belts to this suit on stage. Sometimes the Metal Concho Belt was used and it can be seen under the jacket. A black and red scarf similar to the one he used on the press conference was also used on stage.

“Black Two-Piece” suit or “Black Two-Piece Mohair” suit can be seen on display at Graceland with the black pants that Elvis wore on the press conference.
