    I think it did what Elvis wanted- it was "America" Not nearly as flashy as some but tasteful I guess. Classy!

    This is not the same suit as in Aloha. The Aloha version was only used during Aloha and his Jan/Feb. 1973 engagement in Las Vegas. When Elvis went on tour they made a second version of the suit because Elvis gained some extra pounds.

    Leroy, On the two suits, I know there are some very subtile differences, particularly the blue stones. If my observations are correct, the second (later) suit incorporated opaque blue stones in the chest and back eagles. Do you concur?

    You're right Jouni. That was the very first cape made for this suit. But it was too long and too heavy. The story goes that Joe called I.C. Costumes to tell them Elvis was lying flat on his back because of the weight.
    I do have a picture somewhere. Let me look.....

    Wow! I had seen the pic on the right, but not the one on the left. Though I knew it was a full-length cape, seeing it on the suit like that really gives some perspective. That would have been pretty wild to see him in that...if he could have gotten around in it.

    Is the true weight of that cape known by anyone here? I've heard that certain capes weighed so much, and I am sure that they were quite heavy. But I find it hard to believe they would have made this one unbearably heavy and not figured that out until after they were finished. Or perhaps they weren't that heavy but somewhat restrictive and not really conducive to typical Elvis stage movements.

    ?
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    The point is that after they attached this cape his collar was somewhere up his ***. He couldn't wear the suit in a normal way.

    I have a little update on the "Aloha Bald Headed Eagle". An invoice, dated January 17th, 1973, reveals that Elvis received two identical jumpsuits. That sets the total on three. Two identical versions for the Aloha Special and the upcoming Las Vegas season plus one (larger)version for going on tour in April. That last version must have been a rush order because of Elvis increased weight.

    It makes you wonder that if there were three versions is there more dates for when this Jumpsuits was worn?

    1973
    January 12, 1973 (8:30 pm). Honolulu, HA.
    January 14, 1973 (0:30 am). Honolulu, HA
    April 28, 1973. (8:00 pm). Spokane, WA..

    April 30, 1973. (8:00 pm). Denver, CO.
    June 20, 1973 (8:30 pm). Mobile, AL.
    June 27, 1973 (8:30 pm). Cincinnati, OH.
    July 2, 1973 (8:30 pm) Oklahoma City, OK.

    1974
    March 6, 1974. (8:30 pm) Montgomery, AL.
    March 12, 1974 (8:30 pm) Richmond, VA.

    March 14, 1974 (8:30 pm) Murfreesboro, TN.
    March 16, 1974 (2:30 pm) Memphis, TN
    .



    The reason for the third Jumpsuit would be becaue Elvis had put on weight In 1974, but given that reason why order another duplicate when in total the dates for 1974 show that he wore it only 4 times! It must have been a design he liked because the American Eagle Jumpsuit made it's entrance In May 1974 which to me is a similar style and theme.
