Memphis - A relative says Bernard Lansky, the retailer who helped a young Elvis Presley establish his signature clothing style, has died.

Granddaughter Julie Lansky said the 85-year-old died on Thursday at his Tennessee home.

Bernard Lansky supplied Presley with the pink and black shirts, pegged pants, two-toned shoes and other flashy clothing in the 1950s.

Even though his style changed over the years - including sparkling jumpsuits-  Presley shopped at Lansky Bros clothing store the rest of his life.

Lansky started his retail business in Memphis in 1946, selling Army surplus goods. When the supply dried up, he opened a high-fashion men's store.
