(WMC-TV) - We have confirmed that Bernard Lansky had died this morning. Mr. Lansky is known as the "Clothier to the King."

He sold a young Elvis Presley his first suit at his legendary Beale St. store, and even dressed "the King" at his funeral.

This morning, we send our condolences to his family.

We will have more on this story throughout the day.
