Though we've been asked our opinion, I'm noting from reading the posts that there is only 1 correct answer. Anyone who doesn't say, "no problem" is closed-minded, misinformed and a bunch of other judgmental things.

This closed-minded and misinformed woman is not a fan of men in pink.

That shirt you posted isn't pink....maybe majenta and white stripe but not gay pink. By the way, I've never thought a man looks great in his clothes or otherwise.

I'll bet Daisy thinks the same about Onslow on those rare occasions when Onslow wears a shirt!

Hmmm, I learned something today. I never knew that COLORS could have a sexuality.

So if pink is "gay", then are there "heterosexual" colors too?



Close-mindedness at its finest.

You're close-minded to my opinion....which I think most men share my opinion btw.

I agree. It's seems rather a social class thing. The more the man closely associates his identity with traditional working class masculine dress codes, the more likely he is to run from anything pink. The more likely the man is of a class position that he need not concern himself with what others think, the less likely he will have an aversion to pink. He simply wears what he likes, and looks terrific, including pink. Purple on the other hand is to be avoided by males of all classes.

True, I work for an Engineering Company at a construction site. If I wore pink shirt, I would here about it.

Hear.

You might HEAR good things about it.

I know several men who look great in pink.

What color someone wears does not imply they are gay, straight, bi, or anything else.

Doesn't bother me. I bought an ex a light pink Polo long sleeve and it looked awesome on him.

I think a lot of it is regional as well. Loads of guys wear pink around here and nobody disses 'em on it. But, they are pink Hawaiian shirts, pink board shorts, pink whatevers. They also wear purple, lime green, orange and sometimes all of those colors together. I think a lot of the world is very repressed if the color of their clothes makes that much of a difference.

We sometimes get visitors from Japan who wear these plaids with florals sort of in mis-matched colors. First time I saw a guy wearing that, I figured he'd packed for his vacation without his wife's knowledge, but then I've seen other guys (all of whom seem to be from Japan) wearing the same sort of outfit so I think that's a style there. Plaid and paisley are sort of interesting together after you get your eyeballs unscrambled.

The high school kids have taken to dyeing their hair vibrant colors. I've seen hot pink on guys as well as purple and lime green. I don't think they were homosexual since they had girls who also had vibrant hair along with them.
