The peculiarity in this season in Las Vegas, August-September 1972, is that Elvis wore many three-piece suits. Bill Belew and Gene Doucette had designed these three-piece suits for Elvis to try on. But with use a problem would arise, it was that the pants of these suits had a tendency to split during some of their performances, due to the movement of Elvis. For example singing "Polk Salada Annie" or "Suspicious Minds". Even Elvis would come to give a pair of pants to the audience, once it was changed due to its breakage, causing shouting from his fans who were delighted to have that memory. During the first three weeks he used these suits, but seeing the result he would return to use the jumpsuits that were safer in performance. Although privately Elvis was very fond of wearing these three-piece suits and would wear them on his personal outings. Elvis reused the four new jumpsuits he had debuted on the last tour in June 1972. This season, Elvis stopped wearing a cape in the early part of the shows with a few exceptions. Obviously, what he was looking for was comfort during his shows and not end up breaking the suits during his performances.
