    B&K only made the cape as an accessory piece to go along with their version of the jumpsuit - the original "Peacock" suit didn't have a cape - none of the 'embriodered" suits had a cape.
    The suit worn on 6/10/72 AS had a cape, and it was embroidered, though I thought the peacock was the only one (1974 and on) to have a cape, but never used.

    Just remembered: Wasn't Tulsa the white conquistador?

    If you are referring to the 1972 "Weat Suit", that isn't exactly what we mean with embroidered jumpsuits. That was just gold thread. The real embroidered jumpsuits came in the spring of 1974, just like Tony stated.
    And that generation of jumpsuits had NO original capes.

    Well, as you can see somebody has these pictures. I just have to find out who it is. If I can order this set I can post them the right way.

    That's correct, Leroy.

    Once again, you are correct as always.

    I remember also seeing these same pics a long time ago. I wonder who has them and what they would sell them for? I wonder if they've ever showed up on Ebay?

    Okay, I was unsure before.
