The More Minimalist Pope is WWD’s Man Of The Week; Elvis Presley’s Pope Coat

We live in a world where the rag trade’s bible, Women’s Wear Daily, gets to pontificate on the nuances of Papal fashion. They’re giving Francis high marks (An ‘A’)  for his informal simplicity and choices that are not as flamboyant as his predecessor. No red statement cape for this Jesuit , who may not even want a Popemobile. man-of-the-week

Since Elvis worship is somewhat of its own peculiar religion, I feel this post segues into something truly trivial–archival footage of EP on the move, a travelin’ man in a white caped coat that feels very much like a Pope outerwear special. Presley may have had many problems in his later years but lack of flamboyance was not one of them.
