    Some of the recent discussions in the WAYWRN thread have talked up the merits of wearing a pink shirt with certain color combinations. I happen to like pink shirts myself and so I thought it would be interesting for a Friday Challenge topic. A search of the Friday Challenge archives revealed that this topic had been used once before, but almost three years ago. That precedes my time of StyFo and perhaps quite a few other members, so I decided to revise the topic for this challenge.

    The challenge is to integrate a pink shirt into your look one day this week. Jacket and tie required. Everything else is optional within the bounds of decorum.

    I shamelessly steal some of the inspiration pictures from the last challenge, courtesy of @sugarbutch :

    And I'm going to crib the details from that old challenge as they make good sense to me:

    • 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

    Entry closes at 11pm Pacific Standard Time on Friday, January 29. Poll closes midnight Sunday. I'll have the poll up Saturday morning. Multiple votes will be allowed.

    This is my first time doing this so let me know if I've forgotten some important detail. Have at it!

    Interesting that all the examples you chose are pink and grey.

    I believe that the bearded gentleman is Forum member olddog/oldtrix, not sugarbutch.

    Indeed. it might also mean that he did think it was sugarbutch, and was teasing him about some beard-related matter to which I'm not privy.

    Andy, I'm happy the old challenge was of use to you.


    I like pink and brown together, too, but I may not have found pictures of that combo at the time.

    Koala and Testudo: Pedantry and defensiveness are not good looks.

    Pink shirts are underrated but can be overused. Looking forward to this.

    I think I'm in, if I can find enough sunlight to take a picture.
