    The point is that Bill Belew didn't designed this suit. He only designed the jumpsuits until somwehere around 1971. After that he got too busy designing for other stars. Gene Doucette did all desings after 1971 although Bill took the credit. Gene explained to me what a swirl is. The jumpsuit most people know as the "Blue Rainbow" is in fact the "Blue Swirl". Do you see a swirl on the blue suit from 1972? No, but you do see four leaf glovers. That's why this suit is called the "Lucky Suit". If you want to know something about jumpsuit names contact B & K Enterprises. That's where Gene Doucette is helping out. I met him last January and he taught me something about jumpsuit names. I mean who is more capable of telling me than the guy who made them? Like I said I'm not here to teach just to pass on what I have learned. Is that so bad in a world full of unreal people, lies and myths? I'm not a moderator, just someone who's heavy into Elvis' wardobe and has been for the last fifteen years.
    But it's okay by me. If there is anybody here who find my posts anoying I'm outta here......

    No Leroy... I love your posts. I, and I'm sure many many others, learn so much from you and the fact that you're willing to spend so much time helping others is amazing!

    I really do like this suit but not as much as some of the other blue ones... the Owl one (or the Royal Blue Fireworks) is my favourite blue suit.

    I am a Moderator!! I am also a good friend of Leroys and if he says it is the Lucky Suit then I believe him.......... and the Information that Leroy has passed to me has always been 100% If there is anybody out there that knows more than Leroy then that can only be Gene Doucette.......... I welcome ALL information from ALL fans, but lets be clear here, always be sure of your facts and that of those you challenge before you draw your gun

    I actually think the suit "the Lucky Suit ) looked really cool with the mirror belt...

    On September 2nd Elvis performed his usual dinner & midnight shows, in a very quick turnaround another one was added at 3:00 a.m. The photograph above is from this special 3:00 a.m. show.
