Elvis' 80th birthday celebration is in full swing, and there are many paying tribute to his influence in music and film as well as his undeniable sense of style.

Lansky Bros
., the original clothier to the King, has continued to dress not just Elvis fans but also the modern man in pieces inspired by Elvis.

Today, owner Hal Lansky pulls together two classic outfits that you may recognize from Jailhouse Rock. The first outfit features the striped sports coat Presley wore on the Jailhouse Rock album cover, a vintage pick stitch sport shirt, Elvis' favorite pink and black argyle socks, and black and white loafers with matching belt. The second outfit features the "Jailhouse Rock" sweater and black and white loafers he wore in the movie as he danced poolside with his collar flipped up.  

Even without the cultural context, these pieces are still a staple for men of all ages. Collar up optional. Though Hal may disagree.
