Elvis Suits are Copies

On an Oprah Winfrey show with Lisa, Lisa said that the suits that are on display at Graceland are not real, they are copies, and that the real ones are in storage.

What a ripoff. The fans think they are paying to see the real thing.

I'd ask you exactly where Lisa said this in the Oprah show, but it is complete BS.

She said no such thing. I've watched the show twice and, as a jumpsuit fan, I'd have heard it.

The suits are indeed real.

Of course, if you think you've ehard it, send us a link and tell us exactly where Lisa says it.

You've never even been to Graceland, so you know jack shit.

I've been three times, and seen the suits close up.

They're real, as the missing buttons and various other defects etc from on stage pics will verify.

If this was true, the Elvis world and the forums would be abuzz with the news.

But they're not, because it's simply not true.

Around 80 suits were on display in 2007 during the Jumpsuit Exhibition.

Why would EPE spend money to make replicas of suits - they would cost around $2-3000 each!

Graceland is a museum, you idiot - the suits, and the other artefacts, are real.

The jumpsuits on display are originals. The fact is that some of them were replicated per Elvis's orders. He had 2-3 of certain ones made. Think about it, on tour he wore the "same" suit 2 nights in a row, but it wasn't the same in that the style was the same, but it was a clean suit just like the one he'd worn in a previous show. So Graceland's displays are the real deal, and so are the one's in storage. I've seen the displays and must agree with KE, you can clearly see flaws in them. They were worn by the man himself.
