    In this challenge, you shall wear a pink shirt. Pants, jacket, tie, and shoes required. Hank and socks optional (but encouraged).

    If for no other reason, do it for the money:

    The power of pink: Men who wear shirts of that colour earn £1,000 a year more than those who don’t

    Some examples:

    Details for the nitpickers and legalistically inclined:

    • The pink shirt need not be solid pink
    • A red hairline stripe or microcheck which resolves to pink from more than a foot away is pink
    • Lavender is not pink
    • A Pink brand shirt which which is blue or some other color is not pink
    • Contrast collars are permissible
    • Fun shirts with a pink panel are not pink (I see you, AAS)

    Entry closes at 5 p.m. Pacific on Friday. Poll closes on Monday. I'll do my best to have it posted on Friday night, but I will be at a race track with limited internets. Cut me some slack. Multiple votes will be allowed. Any conforming fit worn and posted to this thread between now and 5 p.m. Friday is eligible.

    Finally, I strongly encourage everyone to take one full-length pic and one tight pic from neck to waist.

    I'll don a pink shirt just so I can make an extra £1000 a year. [​IMG]

    well, for starters, pink tie > pink shirt.

    aside from that, im not sure i want to make ANOTHER challenge specific kop. last time i did that i did not win. i do have a pink shirt, but its not great in fit and collar. very nice color though.

    I have enough pink shirts to play this game - my only question will be which one, and can I coordinate it to whatever suits are in rotation currently.

    As long as that pink is a shirt and the stink is a jacket, tie, pants, and shoes, you're all good.

    You know, I was thinking just yesterday that I was totally bored of pink shirts; I wear them much more infrequently than I used to 5 or so years ago.

    So this challenge will either rekindle my interest, or they'll fade away from my wardrobe completely over time due to a lack of new purchases. I like those stakes. [​IMG]
