The World of Elvis Jumpsuits

Lava Suit

Original name: Lava suit

Other names: Amber Suit

Description: White jumpsuit with matching tiger skin lined cape.

Original "Lava Belt"

A suit of which a very few photographs of Elvis wearing it has surfaced.
This suit was worn during the 1973 August/September Las Vegas engagement, but it's possible that it could have been worn already during the May '73 Tahoe stand. ... Elvis possibly wore it also during his 1974 January/February Las Vegas engagement.
The cape made for the suit had a 'tiger skin' lining, which was very unusual... usually the capes had a simple one color lining on them.
