None taken, though I'm not sure you can obviate the "femininity" of a pink shirt by pairing it with darker colours. The whole pink = feminine thing is completely a modern social construct of course (fxh posted a very good article about this some time ago) anyway. But even if you accept that the perception of pink as a feminine colour is widespread and must be taken into account, pairing it with a dark suit or tie produces a contrast that actually highlights that you are, in fact, wearing a pink shirt. I think this is especially the case in our usually harsh Australian light (more to come on this, I have found an interesting article that may inform some colour theories of dressing for our climes).
To my eye, pink just looks better with mid range or lighter colours: mid navy (eg your herringbone jacket), lighter grey etc. It can also take on the role of a background more effectively in this context, as it blends better with the lighter tones of the rest of one's outfit, rather than contrast with the darker, more staid palette of dark navy, charcoal or black.
I honestly thought that the notion of wearing pink and it being perceived as being effeminate or depicting femininity was so last decade to be honest. Culturally I would have thought the whole Bundaberg Rum bear ' I like a man who wear's pink' promotion, and seeing as its aimed at upper middle bogans would have negated that whole cultural concept of pink being effeminate for the bear is a masculine signifier along with rum being masculine and the catch phrase was in wide circulation that it had gone a long way to de-effeminate social perception of pink clothing on men.
I wear pink shirts at least once a week to work with a navy suit and have a number of pink polos in various shades for casual wear in summer.
Your right about the Australian light PoP and how it does affect colour perception and would you care to share the article about colour and dressing for our climes sounds fascinating.
