Celebrate Elvis Presley’s January 8 birthday in style by shopping at Lansky Brothers, located in downtown Memphis in the lobby of The Peabody Hotel.

Supplying Memphis with the latest fashions for more than 50 years, this clothier dressed Elvis in the famous gold lamé jacket he wore for his memorable, hip-swiveling performance on the Ed Sullivan Show. The shop also provided many of the flashy clothes he wore early in his career.

While Lansky Brothers still offers vintage-inspired clothing fit for the King, customers can also find men’s sportswear, contemporary denim for men and women, and a gift shop.

In addition to Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, Isaac Hayes, Johnny Cash and B.B. King have sported Lansky Brothers’ clothing.
