I will never forget the line in the movie The Great Gatsby when one man said, "but he wears a blank blank pink suit". This line would surely be repeated today if someone showed up wearing a pink suit, but I actually admired Gatsby's wardrobe. It was a speckle of elegance in the 1970s.
Also, to reminisce, I remember Senator Trent Lott showing up to an event once wearing a pink seersucker suit, socks, and tie. The senator loved seersucker, but on that day, he took it to pink overdrive.
