Elvis's trademark flashy fashions were no accident. And a merchant on the famous Beale Street helped shape his image. In fact, Bernard Lansky helped fashion the way many music stars would dress in the fabulous fifties. And today he's still the clothier to the King, holding court in a landmark hotel.
