These are probably your facebook "findings" again - all "jumpsuit junkies" should know that technically, it's not the same suit in the shots.

The 'display shots' show the suit Elvis wore during his November 1970 tour while the live (& candid) shot are from Vegas (TTWII). The version from November differs from the one he wore in Aug/Sept (in Vegas and on tour) in that the fringes are 'thinner', there's more of them and they have a clear knot in the end - while the other has thicker (and less) fringes with no visible knots.

As an additional little detail - the wooden beads in the fringes were also altered to match scarfs/belts Elvis wore with the suit(s). There might've just as well been two (technically) identical versions of the Aug/Sept "fringe" suit also, on top of the November one...

Actually the suit used in Vegas is not the same as the one used on the September tour. In September the fringes has less beads in different colors, so there are 3 different fringe suits used in 1970.
