    If ever I needed a reason to wear pink, it is that my pink striped tie has received more positive female compliments than any other tie I own.

    I mistakenly clicked this thread thinking it was going to be about the shoddy construction of Thomas Pink shirts.

    Pink is a good alternative to the more staid shades of blue and white. I find a pale pink shirt under a blue jacket helps brighten things up on a weekend evening.

    I don't think I will either. However, the situation might would have some effect. I could have my arm twisted to wear a pink jacket with white pants in the spring if I where say in aruba or on a golf course in somewhere south of the equator.

    Any day at any old event in the windy city. Not a chance


    I can definitely see this, but it would have to be done really well. It's one of those looks I can see looking really cool if done right but very "try hard" if it doesn't work out. I would be able to convince myself I'm the former at the store, but I think fear that I'd be the latter might prevent me from actually wearing it. However, I would be happy to travel to any exotic locale necessary to test this theory!

    I'll be visiting the Windy City in a few weeks, I'll be sure to leave the pink sportcoat in my closet. [​IMG]

    It's only a color. Why not?

    Never bothers me, and I receive lots of compliments.
    Every mans wardrobe needs pink, bar none.

    It's because when the typical amjack thinks of pink, they're imagining hot pink or something garish. A light pink is just as versatile as a light blue.
