From "Fashion For A King" - Page 304

"White Conquistador Suit, or Way Down suit as some choose to call is was worn for the first time during this Las Vegas season in January / February 1974. Elvis wore this outfit for the last time in March 2nd 1974 at 1.30pm, this was probably the last time he probably ever wore a cape on the closing of a concert.

I am curious as to why you doubted what "Fashion For A King" said. What Francesc showed was exactly what I quoted from said book?

like i said julian from other people
that where at shows in august they had staded that elvis diddent whore a cape
an other elvis fan here in holland that made a book about jumpsuits also sayd the same
i diddent said that the fashion book was wrong
i just wanted to know if my sources where wrong
and i have earlier said that i was glad that the fashion book was correct
i needed proof that there was a cape worn in 74
because i have never seen a picture from august 73 where you see elvis wearing the cape
maybe he dit where the cape beginning the tour but he stopt on suits in sept
there they where new suits
i hope i made it clear for you
i,m sorry for any mis spellings but i,m not used to write in englisch
i,m verry sorry
and i thank everybody for there input in my question it was really helpful for me
and my research
