FABULOUS LIVE AUCTION

Iconic, Collectible, Original Elvis Presley shirt!!

Framed and Authenticated

Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready now, go cat go…..

Elvis’ influence on the world is incalculable. You can still see his legacy everywhere. He was a style icon and his style is still recognizable to this day. This elaborate, authentic Elvis shirt could yours! Beautifully framed with a photo of The King wearing this exact shirt with his famous flipped collar. Elvis’ trademarked fashions were no accident.  He mixed his innovative rockabilly style with elements of Edwardian dandy which became recognized the world over as the Elvis look. He was one of the first stars who truly understood the power of branding. 

Elvis once said “You know, when some people get down and out, they go out and get drunk and forget it all.  Me, I just go out and buy another car.” Elvis’ car buying sprees soon became the stuff of legends and he is said to have purchased over 270 cars during his lifetime-the majority of which were given away to friends and family.
