Can someone please shed some light on what suits were worn during the Jan/Feb 1971 Las Vegas season.

We can confirm (I think) the second 'Wing' suit and the recently discovered (photo-wise) 'Stud' suit.

I think we can also confirm, contrary to some reports, NO 'Cisco Kid' suits.

Apart from that...

Thanks for the reply.

However, notwithstanding the good work on that site, I get the impression that regarding dates, they rely on cd covers quite a bit.

For example - The Cisco Kid suits, Leroy comfirmed (if I'm not mistakes), that debuted in Lake Tahoe in July NOT Las Vegas in january. Still, bootleg cd's put Cisco Kid pictures, particularly the black one piece with green yokes on the covers of cd's from the Jan-Feb 1971 shows, gthus confusing lots of people.

It's just like saying Elvis wore the Black Phoenix suit for Elvis in Concert - because it's on the sleeve, or the White Matador for the Aloha - because it's on the cover.

Thanks anyway for your time and interest, Hound dog.

Any more?

Does Leroy have a list? Have you PM'd Leroy to see what he knows? I'm guessing you've looked through the jumpsuit section here?
