Couple of tips:
The costume is 100% polyester, so one needs to be careful ironing out the wrinkles on the collar. To remove the wrinkles, I ironed it on 'cotton' setting with steam through a towel. (I place a towel on the costume and then steam pressed it through the towel). Same with the gold scarf. I would NOT bother ironing the black portion of the costume. It's somewhat thin, but looks very plush, so no need to iron out wrinkles unless they're extreme (and again, I'd recommend the steam iron through a towel technique).
The gold scarf is not as long nor as wide as I'd hoped, but it still works great. I simply tuck it in the jacket. To avoid either end coming out and looking 'frumpy' or unkept while wearing it, I join the ends with a small safety pin and keep them tucked inside the jacket.
I also bought the "Big Gold Chain" [Amazon ASIN: Big Gold Chain ] and a dollar sign necklace to complement the ensemble. NOTE: The Big Gold Chain has a tendency to slip into the collar, which, again, makes the costume look a bit unkempt. To maintain the 'proper' look, I simply get the chain where I want it and pin the chain to the collar up close to the neckline using two small safety pins. The pins won't be noticeable at all, especially if you use small gold safety pins.
Sunglasses are a must, but don't feel like you NEED the Elvis-style glasses. Just about any pair of sunglasses will make the costume look great.
Platform shoes would make the costume AWESOME beyond belief, but I didn't feel like dropping $45 for the complementary style, and my alligator-patterned loafers look just fine.
In my opinion, the ensemble is not complete without a cane. I got the Big Daddy Plush Cane [Amazon ASIN Big Daddy Plush Cane - Accessories & Makeup ], as it matches the costume well enough and doesn't break / fall apart after the first use.
Overall: Great costume. It works great for Halloween as well as for any '70's party.
**** Great PUN sidekick costume: My wife did not want to dress as a streetwalker, so she opted for dressing up like a farmer and carrying a garden hoe. To the kids, I was a rapper and she was a farmer. To the adults, well, we let them figure out the pun.
I did iron parts of the jacket under a tea towel as they were a bit crumpled and wrinkled from the packaging but turned out fine afterwards.
The pants are fine, quite long though so I'll see if I need to take them up a bit.
All in all pretty good value. Should be fun at the halloween party!

Größen passen vorn und hinten nicht. Hose zu kurz, passgenau an der Hüfte dank Gummizug. Bauchumfang sollte nicht zu groß sein, denn hier kommt das Gummi in der Hose an seine Grenzen.
Bei der Jacke sind die Ärmel natürlich zu kurz, Rest passt aber schön siehts trotzdem nicht aus, eher im Gegenteil.
