I was about eleven or twelve when that was on and I pestered the chuff out of my parents for a pastel linen jacket, unfortunately they didn't make linen pastel jackets in my size.  I was shuffled out of the gentleman's outfitters fighting back tears.

I largely blame this sartorial trauma for my slide into goth not long after.

  my guess is something traumatised you before you  developed a hankering for the pastel suit Wink

LOL twice over. So sorry to hear of this sad childhood episode.

That delicate forest flower,   
With scented breath and look so like a smile,   
Seems, as it issues from the shapeless mould,   
An emanation of the indwelling Life,   
A visible token of the upholding Love,   
That are the soul of this great universe.

It is never too late.  You can have one now!  That is the beauty of being grown-up; we can wear what we like.  The same thing happened to me after a long campaign as a child for a leather jacket.  They don't make them that small, you grow out of them too quickly.  But I have one now -- so there.

Brian:'Oh yes, I forgot. It's fairly easy, old boy.
Elle a des idees au-dessus de sa gare.'
Kenneth: 'Idiot.  It's not that kind of station.'

Whilst I am happy to concur that the day of the pastel linen jacket may have past, I am the proud possessor of several linen suits, no gentleman's summer wardrobe is complete without them, I'll pass on the espadrilles.  That said, no matter what I wear, my elderly mother always reminds me to pack 'home town' clothes when I visit them  Roll Eyes
