Elvis wore the Tiger jumpsuit, also known as the Mad Tiger, around 1973 or 1974. The Tiger and Dragon suits were two of the first to be made without capes. This white jumpsuit with a high collar sported an open V-neck, flared sleeves, and belled pant legs. The dominant design was a jumping tiger, which wrapped around the front of the suit from the bottom left to the top right. The suit was accented with tiger stripes down the sides of the legs and on the belt buckle. Though perhaps not as ostentatious at some of the other Presley jumpsuits, the Tiger is significant because it represents something personal about Elvis. One of Elvis’ hobbies was karate, his karate nickname was Tiger.
