No To Paid E-mail @elvis.com

Nearly 90% of our visitors answered NO to the question "Will you pay for your email @elvis.com?". We contacted EPE and asked for a reaction. As soon as we'll get it, we'll add it to the site. The new question is concerning EPE too. There is a growing number of Elvis fans who are very concerned about the neglect of Elvis' jumpsuits that are in the Racketball Building , unprotected from the elements. They think these suits are precious and should be preserved behind glass for many decades to come. So our next quickpoll question is "Should Elvis' jumpsuits be behind glass?"

I visited Graceland and seen Elvis' outfits on display. I thought then that they looked neglected and I suggested to the staff at the house and in the Heartbreak Hotel that they would be better displayed and kept in glass covers and put on a rotating stand so that we could see the outfits all around but I never heard from them over the matter.

Hi, I can answer some questions concerning the jumpsuits...They are fine right now. EPE has had some top museums come and review the current layout. The raquetball room is kept at a cool climate control. This is being monitored 24 hours. Actually, having the items in glass causes more heat. EPE takes alot of care into making sure items owned by Elvis will be preserved. I have heard and witnessed many times items of Elvis being handled as they should. I do not work for EPE. I am a fan and to Graceland several times year. I have friends that work for EPE and trust me...they are doing what it takes to ensure Elvis Presley's legacy and his personal items are here to stay :O)

In regards to putting Elvis' beautiful jumpsuits behind glass~~~no doubt about it! How handsome he looked in them, such detail, stitching, colors & most of all our memories of this sensational man. Each year during Elvis Week, I still tour the mansion. My eyes fill with teats & I get such a chill when I'm in the racquetball room admiring each & every piece of history that is displayed, Elvis' awards, the segment from "Aloha" that plays on the big screen & most of all slowly walking by each & every jumpsuit~~~~I can close my eyes & for a brief, heavenly moment, Elvis is right there! So, please EPE, preserve all these sparkling pieces of history & at the same time you'll be perserving more of the memories of our beloved Elvis for generations to come!

Concerning the @elvis.com email, it seems to me that EPE way off track,if they think that people are going to pay for a service they can get else free and to a better standard else where. When are EPE going to sit up and start taking notice of the real fans who have unquestionably voted against any price tariff. People do need to use EPE to stay in touch with the Elvis when there is a wide variety of good web sites which give a true and balanced opinion on Elvis articles. Unfortunately Elvis is being sold out and he can't do anything to stop it; how sad!

But then again, imagine what huge glass cases they need for e.g. the Sundial :-)

Yes of course. Without a single doubt i say: All Elvis's jumpsuits should be protected for many years to come. I haven't visited Graceland yet. But in a few years i certainly will, and i also want to see all the suits by myself. I have asked this question before a while ago when i read an article about the mexican sundial-suit of Elvis, and in how bad a shape it already is. This can't be possible. So i say: protect it in the best way there is. Dutch greetings, Chris.

I think EPE must preserve EVERYTHING that belonged to Elvis with loving care, especially the jumpsuits. It's not their property, it's history and their mission is to take care of it for the future generations.

Absolutely Elvis' jumpsuits should be preserved behind glass. Elvis' performance attire was an intrical part of his 'on stage persona'. I'm certain that seeing these jumpsuits would be interesting to his fans (both present and future). I have viewed confederate and rebel uniforms (behind glass) representing the Civil War period of America's political history. Why, then, shouldn't we want to preserve the attire of a very important period of America's (and the world's) musical history? I think the logical question here is "Why WOULDN'T Elvis' jumpsuits be preserved behind glass??"

I think all the jumpsuits should be protected. EPE could have a museuem of all jumpsuits. It would not be a bad idea if they interchange the jumpsuiits in the regular tour at Graceland but I believe they only display the historic ones such as the Aloha,Black Leather, and etc.. Its a wonder somebody or some business has not bought them. Maybe EPE is planning to auction off the jumpsuits. Somebody should call EPE and find out what the plans are.

I think it would be best if the suits were protected. If they put them behind glass its possible we could get even closer to them and get a really good look front and back at how they were made.

these should be looked after in the best way possible like all the other exhibits in the trophy room and be put behind glass after all epe have the money to do it so why should the raquetball court be any different

I think that Elvis' jumpsuits should be better preserved. These outfits were as much a part of Elvis as any other stuff that belonged to him. If the outfits are better preserved, then people years from now will be able to view them, and see the kind of outfits that elvis wore.
