So, it occurred to me today that I like pink more than blue. It's more fun. My plan for a while has been to buy a quartet of BB OCBDs when funds allow (funds aren't that permissive, so this could be a long time coming). I don't regularly wear any clothes I wouldn't wear with an OCBD.
Right now, my shirts are mostly a hodgepodge of thrifted stuff in patterns -- checks and stripes, with a few white solids. I get a lot of wear out of my two blue OCBDs, and so I was leaning towards getting two more of those, one pink, and an ecru. What if I just got four pink ones, though? My Uniqlo pink OCBD is pretty cool, but I'm not happy with the fit or the collar.
The thing is, I think pink would stand out more than blue. It would be more noticeable, more like dressing like a cartoon character. Is that a bad thing? I don't mean every day, of course, but perhaps three or four times a week. Pink looks good on me. Is it too much of a deviation from blue to have the same wearability?
Any thoughts on the specific merits (or demerits) of pink OCBDs instead of blue, or on the wisdom of having a signature item? I guess I already have a sort of signature appearance, since nobody else who runs in the same circles as I do wears coat and tie with any regularity.
