  1. Hi,

    I own both a winter and summer Elvis tour jacket.
    By the way, the winter tour jacket you're showing was made for the 1976 winter tour, not the 1975 winter tour which wasn't a real tour because there was only one concert : Pontiac Michigan 31 december.

    kind regards,

    JB

  3. Theres a winter one for sale on ebay...I noticed the "Elvis in Concert" patch on chest seems quite fuzzy. Is it picture quality or an inferior patch?

  4. just looked at it,,,, the jacket is a copy that graceland sells , I think its an authorized jacket by the EP enterprise,,,,they made the patch different so the new owner cant pass it off as original elvis jacket,,,,its a nice jacket copy and does look a lot like the real jacket,,,,hammershmidt jackets came out around 1989 and this one by ELVIS PRESLEY Enterprise came out in the past 10 years or so,,,,hope this helps

  5. Many thanks...I have a pre loved Hammerschmidt one and the patch is very sharp and defined in detail, unlike that Ebay one you looked at. Have a black Howe one as well, but sadly thats starting to frey a little (worn too much probably).

  8. The Vietnamese made "plastic" feeling one's without the TCB on the left arm are still being flogged on EBay. He hides that part of the jacket intentionally.

  10. I was Elvis's chauffeur on 11/26/76 in Portland, Oregon. When we got back to the "Lisa Marie" after the show, Joe E. checked the trunk of the limo after everybody else had gone up the stairs to the plane. He found a Red Summer Tour jacket, size Med.that had been left in the trunk. His comment was " If who's ever this is, doesn't want it enough to keep track of it" then Joe just shut the trunk lid and walked up the stairs to the plane. I have had that jacket in a sealed plastic bag for the past 41 years. The label says Apollo by Holloway.
