At the last 2 months of touring he was way too burnt out , the colonel kept him touring like it or not, thats what happens with signed contracts. and at that point i dont think he realized what suit he had on it was just one he liked and probably felt it was his last tour and wanted it to be well known like the aloha suit. that is Why he saved the sundial suit from '74 and kept it till the end. if you like the sundial suit or not it Was the only suit in gold color and to him may have had a majestic appearence, and it does. He never liked being called the king but the sundial suit had a king quality. You would have to see the sundial suit in person to get the full effect. Elvis Loved performing and his audience, but he always wanted to be a normal human being also. It's like the song says "walk a mile in His shoes ". This suit is the unfinished suit, which means they didn't finish it, they left it as it was at the time he passed. they may have designed the legs more to make it more flashy but who can say. Also you dont really know that Elvis even saw this suit he may have said no when he saw it and not worn it like the blue pinwheel and stone. no photos of that have surfaced and nobody knows if he wore that either.
