The "Porthole jumpsuit" was mainly wore with the red lion belt and so far no photographs has surfaced where Elvis used a designed belt for this stage attire,most probable than it was decided to use the above belt with this jumpsuit.At several concerts Elvis would take the belt off as it was more comfortable when doing a lot of moves on certain songs.
During this Vegas season Elvis used also a second belt with the "Porthole jumpsuit", a red leather belt with thunderbirds.This latter belt was also wore with two pieces suit in August 1972. (Note: see the picture at bottom right on page 1972-1)
