Trying not to channel flannel

Help me find a very specific out-of-season bathrobe.

I need a very specific bathrobe as a gift for this holiday season, that I can't seem to find (even on eBay) as it is out of season. It must be a men's light-weight seersucker bathrobe in a light blue striped pattern with a conventional tie around the waste and pockets, if possible.

Mr Toddles had one from Ralph Lauren from long ago and it finally gave out - I promised a replacement...but alas, all I see is flannel, flannel, flannel!!

Note, I've found variations on this theme (solid light blue robe with seersucker fabric, for example - but I'm being picky), and I've already looked at the sale sections of typical places thinking that they might be selling out-of-season items there, but alas - nothing!

There’s this, which is a darker blue than the usual.

This seersucker one one from the Vermont Country Store has a belt and pockets adn says it's Navy, but to my eyes looks more greyish.

This Piere Cardin one (also on eBay) seems closer to the shade you want.

What about this? It doesn't say seersucker but it sure looks seersucker.

This is making me nuts. I have this robe! It's the best. I can't imagine this is a thing you can't get but I've been poking around everywhere and not seeing it. Closest I found was this vintage one on Etsy which is a decent price but also has frippery you might not want. Will keep looking!

Soft, Lightweight Traditional Seersucker Robe (at a big & tall men's shop, but in a multitude of sizes)
