Elvis Week in Memphis
Get ready to shake, rattle and roll! It’s time for Elvis Week, a weeklong celebration of the man -- the King! -- who forever changed the face of music ... and put rhinestone jumpsuits on the map.Filed under:
The Peabody Hotel
Want to dress like the King? Head to the Peabody Hotel -- and look inside for a sign that says Lansky. Elvis got many of his early custom-made shirts from Memphis tailor Bernard Lansky. The two met in 1952, when Elvis was 17. Four years later, Lansky outfitted Elvis for his first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. In 2001, Lansky Bros. established a line of clothing called “Clothier to the King” -- find this 1950s-inspired clothing line in the Peabody’s lobby.
