Silver Phoenix


Original name: Silver Phoenix

Other names: White/Silver Eagle

Description: Dark blue jumpsuit with silver bird facing left.

Belt:
Black Phoenix belt
At least two different "Zebra Belts"; both designed for this suit.

Information:

The bird on the "Phoenix" suits wasn't originally designed as a bird. The original design was supposed to be two zebra heads bowing into each other, but when Elvis saw the sketches, his comment was "that bird has funny feet", as he was looking at the design upside down. So a bird design it came... but if you look at the design upside down, you can still see the two zebras in there... - At least two different belts were designed for the suit. Elvis wore both in '75 and in '76.
