Elvis preferred the silky-feeling Munsingwear brand pajamas for his bedtime leisure activities so it’s only fitting that he would couple them with a bathrobe to complete his nighttime lounging attire. However, this light blue robe was not spared the fate of so much of Elvis’ wardrobe when he decided to clean his closets to make room for new clothes, which was often. This dapper, soft robe was eventually expelled from Elvis’ closet and gifted to Ed Hill, baritone singer of the Stamps Quartet, who was likely in the right place at the right time when the purging mode struck Elvis. The light blue, acetate and nylon robe has the collar tag identifying it as made by “Robe Makers / ONE SIZE FITS ALL / Permanently Pressed” and has a separate waist belt with which to secure the robe closed. The robe comes with a certified copy of a notarized certificate describing the items purchased by Mike Moon from Ed Hill and Charlie Hodge on March 21, 1982 which includes this “blue bathrobe.” The bathrobe with shorter sleeves measures 40 inches (101.6 cm) in length and 28 inches (71.12 cm) from shoulder seam to shoulder seam. The light blue bathrobe, with two front pockets, is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The robe exhibits signs of being well-worn and contains areas of discoloration/staining in various spots all over the garment including the belt.
