What are you saying?

That men who don't do physical labor for a living aren't real men?

What a Neanderthal point of view.

Let me guess.....real men spit, grunt and scratch themselves in public too. LOL

No, I'm dark skinned so I think the color matches better with Caucasian men.

But I'd drive a pink Lamborghini.

This thread has me tickled pink! Would formerly white socks and t-shirts which accidentally had dark red cotton gym shorts washed with them in hot cycle count?

I have worn pink dress shirt with certain dress clothes (charcoal gray pants with a deep fuchsia base color tie or with a light gray suit in the warmer months - been a long time since probably two decades. Pink doesn't look good with my skin color but dark shades and various shades of purple go well. (An odd thread to get bumped).

I'm a guy and while I like the light pink shirts, I've never bought or worn one. I'm just not sure it would suit me. I think it would bring out and highlight my "rough around the edges" qualities, which I think is because of the contrast the "soft" color makes for. I hadn't thought of it before, but I guess that applies to all pastel-type colors.

What century is this that people still even question whether its "okay" for a man to wear pink without being perceived as feminine? My friend had a boss in a stereotypicallically macho environment who "hated" to see a man wear pink. A lot of other men used to kid him that on days that they wore pink they would try to avoid him as they didn't want to appear to attractive to him? This is some crazy *#*#! A color is a color. If you look good in pink, wear it. If not don't.

While my main work is in an office, I also spend a lot of time on construction sites and in manufacturing facilities. I have no problem wearing pink any of these places.

I sometimes wear pink in the summer. I remember once going to Home Depot and walking in the front entrance, and there were 2 Home Depot employees behind me. One of the knuckle dragging mouth breathers was making fun of me with effeminate hand gestures as if pink were a fruity color to wear. Mouth breathing knuckle dragger didn't realize I could see the mirror reflection of his actions in the glass doors perfectly.

It does look silly. Right along with lime green.
