One thing that I have noticed is that compared to other places that I have lived, I see more men wearing pink shirts here in the Phoenix area than I have seen in other places. I almost always wear pink myself.

This makes me wonder: does the popularity of pink shirts on men vary by region? Perhaps they are popular in Phoenix because of our summer heat that typically favors lighter colors over darker ones. Perhaps pink shirts may be less popular in colder regions (although I have a pink IZOD sweatshirt for the occasional cold winter days in Phoenix).

I see what you did there. In truth, gay men don't wear pink any more often than straight men.

Maybe Sheriff Arpaio made them popular regionally?

Seriously, though, maybe they're "back" again? Last Wednesday in a staff meeting at work I noticed the nice pale pink shirt that a guy was wearing and I thought it looked very nice. Pink shirts on men was seen pretty often back in the earlier-to-mid 2000's and then it kinda' died out.

You'd fit right into Nantucket. The pink anyway. In Nantucket, the color pink on men is popular because it symbolizes the carefree type of casualness that comes with money.

Wearing pink was pretty popular around here but has faded away some. Still see men from time to time wear pink but not often.

My husband wouldnt wear pink, his brother would make fun of him haha.

I heard a guy on a radio show discussing the theory that men who have daughters are more likely to wear pink just because they are so used to seeing it all the time.

As far as it being regional, there are a LOT of frat guys who wear pink around here.

In my travels, I have seen pink worn more where there is very hot weather and/or beaches and/or a Hispanic population.

Here in western PA, not so much... But then, up here black and gold rules!
