This was the first time Elvis wore one piece jumpsuits to allow him greater freedom of movement  as more and more karate became part of his act. Shirts came untucked. Bill Belew had supplied a couple of these jumpsuits for his engagement, as well in black as in white. They were made by Ice Capades Costumes in Los Angeles – and they weighed between 25 to 35 pounds, depending on the ornaments, these were canvass, not cotton or polyester.
