Never seen it before, great pic! Judging by the jacket and the tan, I'd say summer of 1971.

Well, first of all it was taken on an airplane.

We see a bit of that crazy gold necklace, made by a guy named made by Mike McGregor, first seen in photos from the famous White House visit on December 21, 1970, and last captured in photos from May 1971. And the jacket is seen in some May 1971 Nashville photos.

However, since he looks a bit tan in the photo, my guess is it's circa February 1971, when he was playing his fourth International Hotel engagement.

He was billed for the jacket on May 17, so I don't believe it was taken February. May, June or July is my guess.

Sorry, I don't. The bill can be seen on page 172 in Elvis Fashion - From Memphis to Vegas. The jacket is shown on the next page, along with the light blue jacket he wore at the rehearsal in Buffalo on 4-5-72, wich he also got invoiced for on 5-17-71.
