I like colours, I find the usual grey, blue, white, black, brown, tan pretty drab, so I like wearing clothes that are unusual or bright colours like teal or something. Nothing to do with sexuality but aesthetically I don't like pink, however, it just reminds me of innards or something lol.

Anyway, I find that clothing for men often lacks colour, although that is changing I will say.

What do you think, should there be more say, bright coloured pants for men? Or shirts in rainbow colours, ala the 60s?

What do ladies think, do they want us to wear brighter colours instead of the usual boring palette?

I say go for it! Men's clothes tend to be pretty standard and somewhat boring, so if you can infuse some character into your daily wardrobe without looking clownish - by all means! Color is awesome.

I love the brighter colors. A lot more fun and high energy.

As others have commented, yeah-go ahead, we approve
Seriously, I feel bad for men who feel restricted to drab/dull neutrals. I mean, if those are the colors (or lack thereof) the person wishes to garb themselves in, it's not for me to argue-but if one has the urge to dress using broader variety/palette, then by all means.... Sure, I've seen ugly (IMHO) outfits featuring bright/garish colors, but it doesn't have to be that way. Patterns, too-they should be allowed on more than just ties, for goodness' sakes !

Wouldn't quarrel with your rejection of pink-though, just for the record, I had math teacher in high school who had this whole "bad boy" attitude going on & he wore pink dress shirts with impunity. He even said to the class that he was fine with wearing such a shade. We didn't mock him for it, either-what fun we made was of his "I'm so tough" attitude, which he did tongue-in-cheek anyway. But if you plain old just dislike a color, there's no pressure to wear it.
