    Did Elvis ever wear a different belt with this suit? Apparantly there was a belt made for this suit, but I've never seen a picture of him wearing it?

    I didn't know that Elvis wore the "Black Pinwheel" jumpsuit at the 8:30 p.m. show in Jacksonville, FL on April 16, 1972?!?!?!?!? Is there any photos of the evening show to prove this?

    He didn't. I think it's a "slip of the pen" on Matt's side. In Jacksonville Elvis wore the 1972 "White Pyramyd" during the afternoon show and the 1971 "White Fireworks" during the evening show.

    I think you're confused because in both cases he wore a black jumpsuit with a red lined cape and a red scarf, but were talking about two totally different jumpsuits. In Hawaii he wore the "Black Conquistador" , which is a more heavy studded jumpsuit (see pictures below). Elvis owned several black jumpsuits.

    I tought I'd seen a picture somewhere of Elvis wearing the actual belt made for this costume but I may be wrong. The belt I've always ever seen around Elvis's waist while wearing this suit is the "Gold Attendance" belt that the International/Hilton hotel gave him. Leroy may correct me but I do believe there was, in fact, a belt made for this suit but Elvis never wore it.
