Elvis is wearing here the " Blue Nail jumpsuit ". This jumpsuit was brand new for the January-February 1972 Vegas Season and became well known as it was featured in the movie " Elvis On Tour " and later appeared as well in the " Lost Performances " video.

The stage belt showed in these photos is the one that was designed for that jumpsuit, however Elvis used several times a belt that was designed for a 1971 jumpsuit ( the White Fireworks ), and in fact Elvis used that belt with some other light blue jumpsuits such as : Tiffany's jumpsuit (Honolulu Nov. 18th 1972 evening show) & the Blue Leaf (Madison Square Garden June 10th matinee show). Eventually I will add photos of these other jumpsuits with their different belt variants.

Lubbock,TX. November 8th 1972. Elvis probably wore the " Blue Nail " jumpsuit at the opening show of that tour for the last time since we never saw any pictures with it after this date. He also removed his belt after singing " How Great Thou Art " and threw it into the amazed crowd.
