    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]

    I would have much prefered a general pink challenge. What about the pink suits and gators, pimpin? My last day of work is tomorrow. It's going to be 94 so I'm not dressing up. I'm staying in on Thursday and am going on vacation on Friday. Is it ok if I put together a fit just for the challenge on Thursday. I promise to wear it around the house though. [​IMG]

    I don't think there should be a problem with an early entry. [​IMG]
