Lansky Brothers, which became Lansky’s at the Peabody when it moved from Beale Street to the hotel in 1981, was ground zero for other icons such as David Porter, Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas, Jerry Lee Lewis and James Alexander of the Bar-Kays

During the 1950s Elvis wore typically African-American clothes. He purchased clothes at Lansky's on Beale Street, Memphis, which catered to predominantly black customers. On stage he wore colored suits with pegged pants and pink shirts. Despite Elvis' success with his generation, conservative adults of the mid 50s did not approve of this race-integrating raising star. Elvis' on stage pink clothes, baggy pants and makeup all provided critics with "evidence" for his destruction of the morals of America's youth

Lansky Brothers store  introduced Memphis to peg-leg pants, Levi’s and bell bottom pants and Super Fly clothes. In the 1950s  entertainers wanted to be flashy and Lanksy Brothers was the only store that you could find that offered wild fashion style for men.

Lasky Brothers store now located at the Peabody Hotel continues to attract entertainers such as Nicholas Cage, Dennis Quaid, the Jonas Brothers.

Bernard knew they were going to get the latest fashions, the hottest thing out, and nobody else was going to have the same thing. Bernard Lansky at 80, still  dressed sharply and was a goodwill ambassador with an eye for fashion and a man who always had a one-liner for his customers.

History: Lasky Brothers men's clothing store officially named Lansky's Clothing Emporium located at 126 Beale Street established in 1949 by Bernard and Guy Lansky that specialised in loud clothing such as yellow suits, pink sport coats and white shoes. Elvis first shopped at Lansky's store in 1952.  These pictures of Elvis fashions of the 1950's were all purchased at Lansky Brothers over several years until Nudie Cohen of Nudie Rodeo Tailors North Hollywood shop designed the Gold Lame Suit
