White Brocade & Green Trim
Las Vegas, Season 2 – 57 Shows – January 26th – February 23rd 1970

This is a white outfit, lined with 3 inches wide embroidery in silver, gold and green-colored leaves around the chest opening and the collar. The green leaves and the beige flowers are on top of a thin light-green stripe in the middle of the pattern. That's why the fans nicknamed this suit to Thin Green Leaf, as the silver and gold embroidery is hard to see in photos. The belt is made of weaved green macramé with some darker and lighter colors made with plastic beads. As usual, the belt is tied to the left side, hanging down to the knees. Elvis wore this suit, which is also known as Green Sleek Suit, during Las Vegas season from January till February 1970 several times, but there's only one known photo from this season. As usual, on each side of the sleeves, there are three white cuff buttons. In some photos from Houston February 27th at the 07:45 p.m. concert, one of these buttons was missing. This was also probably the last time Elvis wore this suit. The green belt was used later in the coming tours in the fall of 1970. This suit is today on display at Graceland, the belt is probably in private hands.
