    I have a pink shirt, but it's not very pale at all.

    Pink shirts are ok but I think it's better if they are discreet. I'm not into flashy pink or fushia![​IMG]
    Pink ties are very nice too...

    Go for it!

    I'm actually wearing a deep pink polo today (office is closed and I'm the only one here).

    I'll vote along with the majority of other posters.

    Pale pink is perfectly acceptable looks great with a charcoal grey suit. In fact, I have a peculiar colored sport coat in a light gray and "egg shell" tan beige which can *only* be matched up with a light pastel pink shirt.

    Other than a deep rose red, feel free to experiment with the other shades too, such as: salmon pink, coral, melon, peach (a mix of pink and orange). I have dress shirts in all of these colors and even a fuchsia tie.

    The color works wonderfully for casual outfits too, as a pink polo or button collar Oxford shirt with pairs great with tan Khakis, or blue jeans, whether the dark indigo or a lighter wash.

    Pink is one of many options for clothing. A little pink goes a very far way. Edgy attitude with irony is necessary or a very trad look is required.

    Probably in a different fabric.

    I love my Fuchsia tie. So much so, it's time for a new one. [​IMG]

    I actually bought a pair of salmon (kinda like those pants but a bit lighter) linen pants the other day. Haven't found an opportunity to wear them but with a blue linen or cotton blazer, why not. White linen blazer would work but would look too much like ice cream, I think.

    When using salmon as a color I find it important to also identify what species of fish you are referring to. For example, the flesh of my cousin, the Pacific sockeye salmon, is a brilliant red hue--on account of the krill he eats almost exclusively--while my own color is more a ruddy pink.

    I just love pink shirts. It's a way of identifying what team you're on.

    Also remember that high testosterone fueled males wear a pink shirt in Italy
    And a high testosterone level caused a certain male to stop wearing a yellow shirt in France. [​IMG]

    Who is man enough to wear Lavender/purple?

    I love lavender shirts with Charcoal gray.


    I'm late to the "pink" party, but I wear pink shirts frequently and receive compliments on them more than anything else I wear (I'm wearing a bright pink polo with faded jeans today, in fact). I've been told pink shirts make my complexion look great.

    I'll also wear a lavender shirt, but much less often than pink.

    Well, it seems to me that if you're going to let someone else dictate your clothing choices rather than following your own tastes, it comes down to:
    1. Wearing what women seem to like; or
    2. Wearing what your buddies seem to like.
    This is a hard choice?

    as an straight testosterone fueled male I prefer option 1, as I am more often surrounded by women...
