It doesn't matter which store I go to. Everywhere, I see the same khaki, gray, hot pink,sky blue shorts, etc. Why must every American man be "forced" into buying the sameness of every other guy.

Typically, more variety in colors are sold in more preppy brands. Think Polo Ralph Lauren and Lacoste in the high end, and Chaps, IZOD, and U.S. Polo Assn in the mid-range. I buy a lot of IZOD in many different colors; one of my favorite colors that they offer from time to time in their spring collections is a shade of light pink known as Fairy Tale.

Also, when it comes to seasonal collections, as a general rule, spring collections will generally include the bright colors and pastels, while fall collections will generally include darker colors, neutrals, or earthy colors.

if you feel that way, go visit a Tommy Bahama store, and get back to me.

Most guys I know, including myself, prefer a more subtle look, rather than trying to draw attention with loud colors.

I'm usually jealous of men's color options, especially in the spring and summer. Retailers flood the women's section with pastels and brights, when I'd be happy with dark or muted shades all year.

Typically for men's clothing you will find the pastels and brights in preppy brands. Here is a nice Fairy Tale pink shirt that I would recommend to anyone from IZOD's Spring 2017 collection:
IZOD Saltwater Oxford Printed Long Sleeve Button-Front Shirt - JCPenney

I also don't like flashy colors that much (esp. work clothes). I do have a couple of bright colored/patterned shirt that I wear around spring to match the season :-)

I had bought a few pastel colored jeans, but I don't know they're pastel until my sister asking why I'm wearing pastels now. I'm like idk ... I don't even know there is such a thing.

It is fairly hard to find a variety of colors in a lot of women's wear too. I don't know what you are looking for, but Lands End and Bean do show polos and tees in a variety of colors. I also agree that some preppy brands use brighter colors.

I think most young men's brands show darker colors because that is what is on trend now.

If the OP is into the preppy style but doesn't want to break the bank, IZOD and Chaps are moderately-priced choices that have a decent variety of bright and pastel colors in their spring collections.
