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


White Brocade & Silver Trim is a one-colored white jumpsuit. Around the chest opening and the high collar you can see a four inches wide beautiful embroidery. The pattern resembles two goats standing horn against horn in the colors of white, silver, gold and black. On each side of the sleeves, there are three white cuff buttons.

Around the waist Elvis wore a weaved macramé belt, tied on the left side. As usual the ropes at the end of the belt were hanging down to the knees. The belt is white with horizontal dark stripes at the top and bottom.

Elvis wore White and Silver Brocade or White Sleek, as it's also called, in Las Vegas season two and in Houston Astrodome, Texas on February 28th 1970, 07:45 p.m., as well as at the closing show on March 1st 1970, 07:00 p.m.. It was also used during the third season in Vegas in 1970, probably on September 6th dinner show. This suit has been on display in Graceland, and it's stored in their archives today. The belt was sold on auction October 7th 1995 and probably still is in a private collection.
