I got to say I am not sure if I would wear a pink shirt now after thinking about it,probably not yellow either.



I have a couple yellow and pink oxford buttondowns, very nice with the right tie/jacket combo.
I also wear the yellow one with a dark green v-neck and charcoal strides with black longwings, very clean look.

As I said I had a yellow Arnold Palmer years ago and yellow and pink oxford shirts were popular,I don't know why I wouldn't buy them now ? there is no reason I suppose times change and as you get older certain colours don't fit your look anymore ...

You are right about yellow and green,and pink looked good with very faded jeans IMO or  grey trousers.

Bright pink or yellow polo shirts  ( Lyall and Scott being one make ) were popular here a few years ago with younger blokes.

Pink? im sure you mean, rose or man salmon ;), when it comes to shirts i'd consider almost any colour, i struggle with solid red thou, always felt it dont really suit me, and the fact it's the colour what city play in

I distinctly remember getting my first "coloured" shirt from my sister for my 11th (1968 ) birthday.it was an apricot cotton with hidden button placket from M&S and a regular collar.She told me it was a proper Mod shirt.That was the beginning of the end !:)

'68 in Blackpool there was no 'standard' in brogues; within the overall style there was some scope for being competitive, for having a slightly different style of shoe within a general 'look'. When I got to S E London in '68, I found a similar situation - any brogue would do as long it was within a certain 'look'. It was really '69, when we all wanted shoes from The Squire Shop, that things seemed to narrow down.

I think I've said it before, Roy, but that is one hell of a nice suit.

I think that its better now because there are no "rules" and you can take what you want and wear it  ( trouble is finding the stuff now though )...one thing that I am keeping my eyes open for is a pair of Derby half brogues in brown or tan,seen some on the Allen Edmonds site,not an unusual design in America it seems but I cant ever remember seeing a British shoe like that.

This pair might be an unusual and interesting take on that theme.  Not sure if MiE at that price?

+1.  Roy do you normally try to match socks with shirt and / or knitwear.  I recall that being v important back in the day.

A very nice suit,and I like the grey tie with the pink shirt.

We were talking about pinstripe in work a few weeks ago,I don't think that you see it about so much now,my mate reckons you should only wear it as a suit because pinstripe trousers wouldn't look right with a blazer or another jacket, I thought the blazer/ pinstripe trousers would be alright ?
