No hon, that is a different color. But you can call it that if you prefer.

I think pink looks good on darker skin. Pink would not look good on pale white skin like myself.

I wear pink shirts all the time. I will not wear pink pants or a pink jacket. Everytime I wear a pink shirt some woman will say I must feel secure in my manhood. I never thought wearing pink was that big of a deal.

Its not so much a gay- straight thing. Usually guys who wear pink and pop their collars are egotistical, macho pricks.

I definitely wear pink without a question, especially pink dress shirts as they tend to tone down the the formality of a suit, when compared with the the starched bright white shirt. I also have pink polo shirts and golf shirts, solids and patterns, that are in the general rotation.

It seems some years ago pastel pink Ivy League long sleeve shirts were very popular. Nowadays I prefer the richer shades of pink like a dusty rose under a suit, or even worn without a jacket. It isn't agay or straight thing -- either the color works or doesn't.

Seems to me guys should be fine with pink. After all, women wear all shades of blue...it's kind of silly to define colors as male or female. I think guys look great in pink--or any other color except plaid pants with a striped top...or knee socks with sandals, doesn't matter what color the socks...

My dh doesn't wear pink for the same reason I don't-- it looks goofy on most redheads.

My husband wears a salmon shirt and it looks great on him. It really is salmon, sort of a pale coral.
His brother used to wear the occasional pink, the real pink, and looked good in it. I haven't really noticed if he still does.

I love pink on a man, but just as women should pay a bit of attention to color and complexion combinations, I think it's a good idea for guys, too.
There are many different shades of pink. As rongav says, either the color works, or doesn't.

I always thought the real-men-don't-wear-pink stigma was a little silly, considering that we women have worn blue all along.

My husband has a couple of pink shirts, although it's definitely NOT his color. On the other hand, my father's favorite color was pink, but he wouldn't have been caught dead wearing it.
