Due to either an error by a certain shirtmaker, or more likely due to an error of my own, I am now the proud owner of the pink shirt pictured below. Â As you can see, the stitching around the buttonholes and the buttons are a nice blue rather than self-colored which I typically order. Although this will limit the shirt's versatility, I tend to like the look (though I haven't thrown on a tie and cufflinks yet to see how it works). Â In your opinion is this an interesting touch or a subtle distraction? Thanks, Henry P. Boogers p.s. - I haven't talked to the shirtmaker yet, and expect no issues with them. Â

I dig it. Very cool. Who was the shirtmaker? I want one.

If they're not overdone (and I don't think they are in this case), contrasting details like button holes can be a really neat, subtle touch. I wouldn't wear it as a business shirt or to any sort of serious, dressy occasion, but it would work great as a casual shirt with jeans or worn to an evening party.

What kind of buttons are those? I'm sorry, but they don't seem to match. Or is it just the flash?

I am really liking that shirt the more I look at it. Do you have what you ordered written down anywhere?

Many members of the forum have previously referred to that fabric as "Hermes pink." I think there was another thread praising that fabric as beautiful.

I like the shirt, but i'm a sucker for pink
I recently got myself a pink Barba and the color looks very similar to this one, the contrasting buttonholes etc. are just a great mistake. However, I would make sure the shirtmaker knew it was a mistake so he takes a bit better care of your next order

I think it looks good, and a nice touch of individuality.
