Description


Elvis Presley’s personally-owned and -worn custom glasses with nonprescription lenses. The aviator-style glasses feature black plastic frames with his initials, “EP,” prominently set in the bridge and the famous lighting bolt “TCB” emblems on the temples, representing his ‘Taking Care of Business’ band. The black plastic earpieces are impressed with “Polaroid 8804” and “Holland.” In fine condition, with light general wear. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from Elvis Presley’s bodyguard Dave Hebler. In part: “One day (1975), Elvis, Linda and I went from Memphis to Dallas to look at the restoration progress on Elvis’ latest airplane—‘The Lisa Marie’…I asked him why he wasn’t wearing the chrome aviators and he said he needed a change of pace. I told him I thought so too and with that he tossed them at me and said, ‘I needed the change of pace’…The sunglasses…are the custom pair of black aviator sunglasses that I received from Elvis on that day.” Also accompanied by a letter of provenance from The EP Archives, stating: “I have seen both chrome and gold sunglasses but this is the only pair of black ones known to exist.” An exceptional piece of pop cultural history embodying Elvis’s iconic look.
