Less versatile: Pink is not one of the most versatile colors, & you need to have a great Fashion sense to match with with the correct colors of clothing. Maintenance: Pink shirts are too eye-catching & vibrant, especially if worn by a man. Consequently, even a small stain on the shirt can ruin your whole outlook, no matter how well-dressed you are. You need to be extra cautious for maintaining the pink shirt. Real Men wear pink because they are confident as aforementioned by another OP in their manhood and sexuality. Now, on the other hand wearing a pair of pink pants unless extremely washed out and then even so, would likely be considered effeminate and to be honest with you likely look so too. Or a pink jacket? No. Just no. Thus, I would limit my pinks to T-shirts, and Button down shirts. Some accessories as well like a bandana or maybe some kind of hat with some pink in it and maybe brown or black. What I do know is I don’t think I remember ever seeing a pair of pink underwear on sale anywhere for men. Likely, because the designer, manufacturer, store and customer will not buy them. So essentially they are pissing money away into those pink undies! Or I just don’t shop in those stores.
Girls love it when a guy wears pink, and I’ve been told I look sexy in a pink Polo shirt I used to wear regularly – until the clothes washer finally tore a hole in the chest area of it. Can’t wear that one out in public anymore, but the last time I priced a pink Polo at a department store it was at the time beyond my budget. Still is, if it comes from a store like Belk or Dillard’s. And where I live, if men were equally allowed to wear women’s clothing out in public and get away with it, I would wear pink feminine apparel on a regular basis. I would be nicknaming myself the pink angel. I would even be an advocate for the color, and wear it with my fake but large and VERY realistic pregnancy belly. Pregnancy and femininity go hand-in-hand, in my opinion. And what better way to do it than to display those traits with the most feminine shades of pink available? I did take a lot ribbing from the guys and women alike. The guys were doing what guys do, trying to embarrass me. I’m not sure what the women were trying to do. Some of them were trying to get to know me, and other women were just being nasty! Rest of them were just trying to kid me. In todays world, hardly no one says anything. Of course between the washing incident and today, about 50 years have slipped by. That MAY have a little to do with the change in attitudes.
