For what I remember, this jacket was a movie prop (impl, more than one jacket was made) and wasn't suede either. Secondly if it is genuine, Graceland most buy it, purely because it is a HISTORICAL piece. One of the most famous promotion photo's from the 50's. But hey, when did they do something right anyway?

Yeah Buffalo: ten grand is bit high and fake stuff is always a threat. Why don't they raffle off some of EP's clothes, belts, etc to very loyal fans who buy all the FTD releases ? Then they'd show some gratitude to us. With the release of JRock FTD it would have been a perfect timing...By the way, can we now SOON expect E's second album plus bonus songs & many outtakes on FTD this summer ? Also the long awaited KCreole one ? Hope so.

Hmm! Is this genuine? It would be expensive to buy this & then discover it's been recently knocked up in Lancashire & then distressed to age it! It can be done. I worked on the BBC Play "Long Distance Information" directed by Steven Frears, & for that we had a jacket specially made that exactly matched the blue/black/white striped one worn on the "Jailhouse Rock" EP cover. Frankly you could not tell the difference & I keep expecting that one to turn up too. So Caveat Emptore!
