    Matt,
    In the concert years book by Stein Erik Skaar, this suit is named "White Spanish Flower Suit"

    Actually, this suit is not the White Spanish Flower, but the suit he used in Nashville.

    Here are photos of the White Spanish Flower jumpsuit. You can clearly see the difference in design.

    White Spanish Flower

    I understand where you are coming from, (see the post from Kenny above, I undeleted it so you can see it) he commented that it was White Spanish Flowers, so................ where do we go from here

    This Nashville suit has a different design. Unfortunately, my copy of The Concert Years book is on loan, so I can?t check it out. If it is like Kenny said, there is obviously a mistake in that excellent book.

    White Spanish Flower has the same design as the Black Spanish Flower, so it should be obvious that this Nashville suit can?t be called that. (Or it can, naturally, but it shouldn?t)

    I have just checked it again, and it really says so in the book, so it is another misstake in that book
    There are a few misstakes in the book, but it is so much info there so a few misstakes want hurt this book much i think

    White Spanish Flowers vs Nashville suit

    White Spanish suit (left)/* Nashville suit (right)





    On these two color shots it's much easier to see the differences :

    The " Nashville jumpsuit " has Gold / Blue incrustations while the " White Spanish jumpsuit " has Green and light Blue stones incrusted in a different manner and design.

    The latter suit was displayed at Graceland in 1997 besides his " Black Spanish " counterpart, both have exactly the same design except that the Black one has red and bigger stones on it :

    Re: White Spanish Flowers vs Nashville suit

    small correction:
    The blue rain (Nashville) has blue, gold AND white stones.

    The spanish suits have the exact same stone sizes. The pattern is identical.
    Only the stone cabochons colours are different:

    white: emerald, sapphire, emerald AB
    black red: siam and siam AB
    black green: emerald, emerald AB

    where AB stands for Aurora Borealis. It is a titanium coating on top of the stone that gives a blue colour when looked from the side.

    Re: Rainfall Jumpsuit (aka) Nashville Jumpsuit (1973)

    Well, these are the last of my photos....i was saving the best for last. Not that this is my favorite suit...but it holds a special place in my heart. It's kinda rare and it is what Elvis had on the first night I saw him in Pittsburgh. It always bugged me that it's nickname is called "the Nashville suit", since he wore it in Pittsburgh FIRST the week before (or VEGAS in Feb). I did not recognize the suit AT Pittsburgh (assuming it was new). But a month later when STRICTLY ELVIS came out, it had Sean Shaver's photos of the Nashville show...thus the name stuck.
