Before he entered the white-sequined-jumpsuit phase of the seventies, Elvis was very fashionable—whether he wore leather jackets, windbreakers, or late-1950s suits. Here, he dons high-waisted beige pants and a light, bright-red jacket with a sharp-edged collar that adds some flair when paired with a basic T-shirt.
