Here we go with part 2...
VEGAS JAN/FEB 1973:-
Light Blue Wheat
Light Blue Spaceball/Pinwheel and Stone
and I have read in the pages of an ELVIS MONTHLY many years ago that EP wore his BURNING LOVE and WHITE PINWHEEL suits at this engagement?? He wore the Burning Love in El Paso as late a the previous November,and in this seaon he would've been slim enough to fit into the White Pinwheel,can anyone shed any light on this? The guy who wrote the article seems to know his stuff, although he doesnt say where he got this info from.
TAHOE MAY 1973
Planet/Orbit (he allegedly gave this suit to a Maitre D' during this engagement,anyone know is this true??)
VEGAS AUG-SEP 1973

VEGAS JAN/FEB 1974:-

As Aug/Sep 1973...I cant as yet think of anything else that may have been worn this season, We KNOW that the Nail-Mirrored suit,White Conquistador were definitely worn,as well as the Today suit (EP recieving award backstage).In the backstage photos with Joe Guercio,EP wears one of the Black Spanish Flower belts. He mentions during one show that he is wearing the Aloha suit. With the exceptions of the Amber Lava and White Spanish flower suits,all the rest were worn during the incredible March tour.

You may want to check out the "The Kings Court" forum as this one has a hugh list of jumpsuits worn by Elvis and their respective use in a certain engagement or tour. Furthermore I'd suggest you visit the site of Silvester Eter called "Silvesters-Elvis-Page.at". This one is also full of details on jumpsuits and gives information on when they were worn. Great site, be sure to check it out!
