Earlier, I'd given John the shirt he wore that particular night. I'd started spending time with a group  called the Rockercisers, who wanted to teach people how to exercise in place - they pitched it as aerobic dance for future astronauts. As soon as I gave John the bright, loud shirt they'd designed, he took his shirt off and put the new one on. The Rockercisers were pretty happy when they say the picture of John wearing their shirt.

From Right Place, Right Time: The Life of a Rock & Roll Photographer by Bob Gruen.

There's a chance it could have been custom made for John, as I searched the entire internet looking for that shirt. All I'm getting is "Mysterious John Lennon shirt" stuff.

  

I kicked around a bit too @Magill. The Rockerciser Company still exists (appears to mostly be gyms playing rock music - found a video of 20 people playing air guitar), so I went ahead and sent them an email asking about the shirt. Hopefully I can get a picture to share.
