I had the good fortune to visit the Lansky Bros. store in Memphis 15 years ago. It's inside the Peabody Hotel which is famous for a pond in the lobby that's full of ducks. Real ducks. Several times a day the ducks walk in a line to and from the pond, amusing observers. It's a magical place. A scene in the new movie takes place inside the Lansky Bros. store and shows Elvis's affection for its staff.
I brought home from that trip a fun Elvis-jacket and have mail-ordered many shirts since. A package arrived today with a cool red bowling shirt with vertical leopard stripes and a t-shirt with Elvis's personal logo on it -- TCB (Takin' Care of Business). The logo is displayed in the title-scene of the movie.
I just watched this movie a couple of nights ago! I loved the spectacle of it and thought that Austin Butler was excellent. Loved the suits he wore in the movie! How cool that you have a few pieces! I bet they look good with your Fluevogs! ;-PReplyDelete
Glad you enjoyed the film. Baz makes good movies. Yes, my wardrobe's pieces go well together.Delete
From the snippets I've seen, Austin Butler is fantastic in the Elvis movie. Even my hubby, who used to be a big Elvis fan back in the day, was impressed!ReplyDelete
That bowling shirt is amazing! xxx
Thanks. And, yup, Austin caught the spirit of his character.Delete
Ah! Such cool shirts. That movie is on my to-watch list. Surprisingly I've never been to Memphis.ReplyDelete
IT'S IN YOUR STATE!! That'd be like me never going to the Statue of Liberty. :)Delete
I want to visit that store and the hotel. It sounds so cool. Love your shirt too. The leopard print paired with the red is all that and more.ReplyDelete
Thanks. Visiting the store is special but you can also look at their stuff on the website. (Link in post)Delete
The tops are really cool, esp the second one! I'd wear that with a short corduroy skirt and mustard cardigan!ReplyDelete
I am so out of the film loop, I didn't know there was an Elvis film!
Yes, and BAZ LUHRMANN directed it! He did "Romeo + Juliet" with Leonardo diCaprio and "Moulin Rouge" with Nicole Kidman. He's a bombastic director which suits the King of Rock 'n Roll.Delete
