Rare Elvis Presley shirt on display at the Beatles Story

A STRIPED polo shirt worn by Elvis Presley throughout the late 1950s is on display at the Beatles Story.

The blue and grey sweater, which bears the King of Rock ’n’ Roll’s embroidered initials, was lent to the Albert Dock museum by the caretakers of his Memphis estate.

Estimated to be worth around £10,000, it was made by the Corsicar label in California and is a typical example of Elvis’ personal brand.

His initials began appearing on his clothes in the late 1950s and continued to adorn shirts, jackets, jewellery and even sunglasses well into the 1970s.

Jerry Goldman, Beatles Story managing director, said: “Elvis and The Beatles are the greatest artists in popular music history so it is apt we bring the two great music cities of Liverpool and Memphis together.”

The shirt, on loan from Elvis Presley Enterprises, will used in the exhibition to symbolise the huge influence the star had on The Beatles and their music.

John Lennon once famously said “before Elvis, there was nothing”, while Elvis recorded several Beatles songs.
