You must have a different version of Aloha to the rest of us. None of the versions I have show Elvis wearing a cap!

More importantly, who is the young lady in your avatar? I think we should be told. We can worry about Elvis' cap later. :wink:

Could well be. It went unsold recently at a Julien's Auction:

Don't know if this is genuine but the story goes that Bill Belew made this long cape for the Aloha suit and when they put it on Elvis he fell backwards on his back and laughed his ass off. It was way too heavy, so they made the shorter versions.

ORIGINAL CAPE MADE FOR ELVIS PRESLEY'S ALOHA FROM HAWAII CONCERT - 1973

In terms of authentic iconic Elvis items, it does not get much better than this! This is THE ORIGINAL cape which was made for Elvis to wear for the legendary "Aloha from Hawaii" Concert in January, 1973. This cape was designed by Elvis' designer Bill Belew so that when Elvis came on stage, he could be "hidden" behind the long cape. The idea was that Elvis would appear on stage for this world-first event, behind the cape and at the end of the Space Oddysey, he would drop the cape and turn to face the audience, revealing himself to the waiting crowd.

When Bill Belew arrive in Hawaii with this magnificent 5 foot long cape, Elvis tried it on and almost tumbled over backward as he tried to walk. It was decided that for the concert itself, a shorter version of this design should be used. Bill Belew then had only 24 hours to make a new cape. This cape was then sent back to Graceland and remained there, in its archives until the charity auction held in 1999. This cape represents not only the single most significant live performance ever by Elvis, but also the ultimate in authenticity and provenance. I purchased this cape from the successful bidder at the Graceland Archives auction, so in effect, I am only its 3rd owner ever! You could be it's 4th!

As most people know, this cape and it's design are significant (not only because of it's place in history) but also because the design of the eagle and the colours were to represent Elvis' passion and patriotism for his own country.
