If there is one thing that Elvis Presley was known for, it was his style, his absolutely unique style. While Elvis wasn’t above the occasional shopping trip to Sears, the majority of his wardrobe was designed just for him, by IC Costume Company (who designed his jumpsuits), Lansky Brothers in Memphis, and others. One member of the Memphis Mafia also got in on the act when it came to Elvis’ look: Marty Lacker. The offered costume drawing was created by Lacker, whose duties included being Elvis’ wardrobe manager. Lacker created a number of looks for Elvis, both onscreen and off, and the offered drawing, while entitled “CASUAL CLOTHES,” could easily have been made for one of his films in the 1960s. The accompanying Elvis Presley Museum Certificate of Authenticity, signed by owner Jimmy Velvet, reads, in part, “This original Wardrobe Sketch of Elvis Presley’s Casual Clothes was drawn by Elvis’ wardrobe manager, Marty Lacker. Marty designed a lot of Elvis’ Movie Wardrobe.” The sketch measures 11 by 8 1/2 inches (27.94 x 21.59 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The drawing presents with several fold lines across horizontally and some areas of minor edge wear with some small tears. Excellent condition.
