Sorry, I didn't mean you.  I was answering generally to the question of pink shirts and the people who consider it a bit "fey"   . Here in Europe, you generally see men utilize more colours than the States, a plus to my eye, instead of the boring white and blue shirts.

WHOOPS, I must have gotten 'carried away' in replying. I suspected you meant the comment in general. MtB

Looking to Improve, was the Etro shirts in linen that you purchased pattered or multicolour stripes? Edit: is it on the Etro website: www.etro.it

I forgot to add another source for MTM shirts in the Hague: Westheimers on Kneuterdijk. I checked out their Emmanuel Berg MTM, not too bad, I think about the same quality of construction as Maffeis, maybe better, the button shanks are nice. They are made in Germany with Swiss or Italian fabrics. Maybe Bengal-Stripe knows the brand?

One shirt was striped in varying shades of... pink., the other was a bit more basic: white with a large light-blue check. *EDIT* T4phage, just missed your edit. I've done a quick search through the 72 pictures of the mens S/S 2004 collection and haven't seen it. Hope my description is of some help and/or consolation.

I'll wait for the results of the 'test-shirt' I ordered. I forgot to mention the 'test-shirt' will be made by Maffeis. When I get that I'll evaluate and maybe adjust first, before trying something else. (Borrelli is a name I keep in the back of my head, and which has received good reviews in this forum). MtB

 Nice.  I'll drop by Oger in Amsterdam in a week or two to check them out (and drop by the Vietnamese restaurant.)

Borrelli is good.  I forgot to let you know, the prices of the E.Berg shirts start at Euro 160 MTM.  Not too bad. Edit: Actually, the Berg starts at Euro 130

Thanks anyway. I'll check it out soon in AMS. Here is another resource for you, on Denneweg, a store near the end of the road (near the Hotel), forgot the name. They carry some shirts with the same sensibilities as Etro, but made in Napoli. They are the store that also carries the La Buca ties and Gerano clothes. A bit more elegant "hip", with some Pal Zileris, Reporter, Kenzo, and Duchamp accessories.

Should prove an interesting store. I quite like Duchamp accessories. The La Buca ties should prove interesting by your earlier post, not to mention the Gerano clothes. Thanks again. MtB

While I have serious issues with pink, I do love purple shirts. It's my favourite colour actually. I probably live on Mars, but do a lot of people think that it's unmanly?
But your profile says that you live in Toronto. I'm so confused...
Maybe he commutes.

I think pink is an excellent color, and I wear it often. I was in Nordstrom shopping around, wearing a pink D&G dress shirt dressed down with jeans, and a female employee said to me, "That shirt looks really nice. Most men are afraid to wear pink, but I don't see why. I think pink is sexy." Thus, I am now an avid pink-wearer It also tends to show courage, and being an uncommon color on males, it also shows your ability to look stylish. It looks very very nice, IMO, regardless of any trends, and people will notice it looks especially nice because they don't see it every day.

Pink is an excellent shirt color for men, however, it isn't for everyone. If you can't pull it off with a certain aplomb, don't try it.

Also remember that high testosterone fueled males wear a pink shirt in Italy
