    I think the third (larger) one was needed in 1973. In April he'd already put on weight. In some pictures it's showing, in others it don't. The one he wore in 1974 is definately the third version. At least that was what Butch told me. But I never counted on the invoice to come up. I saw it a couple of days ago and I'm still searching my machine so I can post it.

    If there was more than one version of this suit - and remember that the invoice shown on this thread isn't all that specific - can someone post pics to show any differences? I can't see any so far ...

    Both suits were Identicle apart from the stone coloration! there is one displayed in Las Vegas and the one displayed in Graceland, it would be great to be able to compare both to see any differences?

    By the way Stefan the picture you have posted are fantastic in detail, did you take these your self?

    The one that is/was on display in Las Vegas is the real "Aloha" suit...the other one that is displayed at Graceland is the third "Aloha" suit....I can't understand why Graceland/EPE won't display the actual "Aloha" suit whatsoever and try to pass off the third suit as being the actual suit....

    That just befuddles me....

    very weird that the aloha suit is standing in Las vegas,while the suit that he wore in vegas is standing in Memphis
    The cape that is on display in Graceland,is that the real cape he wore or is that also the one from the Vegas tour and the rest of 1973 and '74?

    What about the Aloha belt which was thrown into the crowd at the end of the concert, was that returned to EPE and is that the belt which is displayed in Las Vegas?

    Yes, the cape is the real one but it's not owned by Graceland. The original owner, Bruce Spinks, gave it on loan.....

    I am not really sure about the cape and suit, but the suit and cape we can se on display, that is not the suit he used on the Aloha show 73, but that he used on tours 73-74 ?

    Actually, the late Andrew Kearn bought it from Mr. Spinks and, upon Andrew's passing his (Andrew's) family donated the cape to Graceland.
