    The reason he took the belts off was to do his Karate at the end of suspicious minds, there are videos of this with the white pinwheel suit on you tube Kansas city '71 he took the belt off, but then closing song he put the belt back on. also madison square garden pics show him with no belt, but then put the belt back on upside down.

    Re: Multicolored Rain Jumpsuit (1973)

    Im just taking an educated guess but.... It has been stated that when boxer Muhammad Ali met Elvis in vegas in '73 he commented on Elvis's jumpsuit he was wearing and said that's a nice suit. So Elvis had a robe made for Ali and presented it to him and he wore it in the ring. But nobody, even Bill belew mentioned which suit it was modeled after or the suit Ali liked. My guess is THIS suit was made in '73 and WORN and had to be for Ali to perhaps have commented on it so Elvis had This suit sent back to IC costumes to have them replicate it. And that might account for why THIS suit is not in any pictures, because Elvis only wore it that one time . If you look at the Ali robe and on B&K costumes website it is the same colored rain fall pattern accept for the star burst circle accents they added on it.
