    I'm with you on that. My wife keeps trying to buy me pink dress shirts and polos, and I flat out refuse. I don't care how trendy it is, pink's for girls :bigstar:

    *shrug* powdered wigs are totally classic too, but you won't find me in one. I find them as distasteful and effeminate as pink shirts

    There's an intriguingly complex free association/stream of consciousness flow to this list. [​IMG]

    I really hope it isn't the result of editing, and was genuinely expounded in a single passionate bolus.

    Sounds like asking you what you actually wear would return a shorter list :laugh:

    Absolutely any leather goods in black(there is no patina so ding)
    Gold buttons on blazer (but this one I am changing)
    Tweed (way too warm in the tropics)
    Absolutely anything with a logo on it
    Seersucker or madras (linen and hand loomed cotton is good enough)
    Striped or repp ties (remind me of medical reps who used to chase my doctor father)
    Black tie outfit (association with bearers is too strong in my mind, velvet smoking jacket or a black tussah silk shervani are my defaults)
    Any Commercial cologne (only wear bespoke)
    Actually almost anything that not bespoke(advantage of living in the tropics)
    Special pockets for iPhone etc
    Granadine ties ( switching the lot to tussah, shantung and linen. More suited to the tropics)

    That is of course total rubbish. There is no more elegant and flattering colour for men's shirt. Pink briefcases and shoes should be off limits but it works in shorts especially in the tropics. Suggest you start with pink boxers and work your way up as you build your manly confidence.

    I used, to really dislike those shoes with the stitching up the front of the toe--IHNI what that's called--but I'm coming 'round to them. I hate gaudy ties/pocket squares; I see a lot of guys wear them here. Almost anything from SW&D is terrible aesthetically and objectively. No Prada/any shitty designer brand for me; it's all crap, really, but, if I saw something good from them, I wouldn't dismiss that individual piece, of course.

    And, man, if I was by a pool--and in and out of the water--I would wear the shit out of some flip-flops! :) :p
