Another Jumpsuit re-called from
1974 is the "Blue Swirl" also known as the "Blue
Rainbow". In 1974, Elvis used the original belt and buckle but this time
it was different. Elvis used a belt with horizontal stripes and
For many years people believed this was a new designed belt but this
is far from the truth. In fact, this belt is also an “oldie” because
it belonged to the white two-piece Elvis used during his first 1975
Las Vegas engagement and the tour that followed. Elvis used several
dark blue two-pieces in that specific period and they all had a belt
to go with but for some reason Elvis didn’t use them. Probably
because he wasn’t going to take off his jacket.
