    The Aloha Belt looked better than the original belt on this suit.
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    I like the original belt better because it matches the design closest on the front of the suit....I'm a virgo so I'm anal about that sort of thing.

    Elvis was wearing the American Eagle jumpsuit on 08/06/73...it was opening night in Vegas. Would that be this suit, or the one used in 73?

    Aloha Belt vs American Eagle Belt

    I prefer the Aloha belt as well. Are these belts the same dimension? The aloha belt looks a bit smaller than the other. Anyone know the true dimensions of these belts and did these dimensions change over the years? Maybe the actual craftsman making the belts changed? I have seen from receiepts that some were purchased through IC Cosumte, while I have also heard that Mike McGreggor had made them. Anyone know the real scoop?

    I'm confuzzled...are you referring to whether he wore the "Aloha Bald-Headed Eagle" jumpsuit or the "American Eagle" jumpsuit?

    According to the awesome "Elvis In Concert" website Elvis wore the "Blue Rainbow" jumpsuit that night....I can't find any other info regarding the show other than that....

    I think the elvis-in-concert site (wrongly) assumed that because the cd's artwork included a pict of EP in the rainbow suit, it was worn on the show. As fas as I know the rainbow suit was forst worn during the short May 1974 tour.

    This suit is gorgeous, one I had never really seen much of until the FTD BOOK –LIVE IN LA where it's seen in all its fantastic glory.

    Elvis still had the magic in 74' as shown in the book and excellent CD;although the sound is bass heavy adjust the treble accordingly for the King on great form– the best "Steamroller Blues" I've ever heard!

    This suit would be in my top ten of 1970s Elvis jumpsuits & easily on par with the ALOHA American Eagle suit.

    Yeah, I agree Elvis could still come up with the goods in 1974. Even though 74 is considered a mixed year, visually he still looked great most of the time.

    Thought 74 was a great year for elvis musically and look wise.

    also there is a very cool photo of Elvis in the American Eagle outfit on the cover of the LP Elvis In Hollywood..very cool
    "How do I get placed in situations like this? Ah hell, I guess it's all part of showbusiness "~ Elvis in his limo on his way to perform in Omaha, NE on June 19th 1977

    Up through August was great.
    He had the energy missing in 73. Jan/Feb Vegas is my favorite.
