Pink is a nice color. Brook Brothers has pink shirts for men. It goes very well with a navy suit. I have a coworker who wears them and it suits him quite well.

Depends on their coloring, but pink is very flattering on some people. I think it looks great with a gray suit.

So you're one of those people eh?

Pink blankets are for baby girls, it's as simple as that. Has nothing to do about insecurities with manhood or any of that new age nonsense. Pink is a girls color, has been and always will be. Why people like you feel the need to make an issue out of that is beyond me

Also, while some guys can pull off pink shirts, I still firmly believe they never belong on a straight man. I guess I'm just old school.

Actually, that's not true. Blue and pink were not considered that particular combination of gender signifiers until shortly before WWI. In fact, if anything, it seems to have been the other way around.

See: www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/when-did-girls-start-wearing-pink-1370097/?no-ist=

And, "There has been a great diversity of debate on the subject, but the generally accepted rule is pink for the BOYS, and blue for the GIRLS (emphasis mine). The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl." From Lady's Home Journal, June 1918. See it here:

www.theguardian.com/theguardian/2009/dec/12/pinkstinks-the-power-of-pink

My own personal opinion is that, if the shade of pink goes well with a given person's complexion, I have no problem whatsoever with anyone--male or female--wearing it.

I could care less, what I care a lot more about is that they act like gentleman 24/7/365 and not just on holidays.

As a guy, I don't see the big deal. I have a pink shirt that I wear. Some guys are conditioned to think pink is for girls. That's no more true than saying blue is for boys.
Liberate yourself! Break free of conditioning, especially other people's. Pink is the new blue for men. There's a teller at my bank who wears some kind of purple or magenta shirt with his suit--VERY yummy! Get jiggy with color!
