      I wonder if these times and places coincided with the times and places in which a Jewess was required to wear (variously) a red or yellow visible underskirt. That could have created some very large problems.

        And that is the point, sort of.....

        That at some period of time, be it months, years, or decades, in some location, whether a street, district, country, or class; people did/thought/ acted in given way.....

        Conversely, it cannot be said that Pantone Green 364 IS worn by women of easy virtue (whatever that meant then and there!)
