i think its ok for guys to wear pink, but it my school there's somewhat of a pink "gang" and all the "ghetto" kids wear pink, so mostly i dislike it because it reminds me of the "ghetto" kids.
Me too, there are these little "gangsters" walking around like they own the place, one leg faster then the other so it looks like they'r limping, saggy, baggy jeans and these huge pink t-shirts. I'm thinking to myself, "You look like you got street cred, especially in that lovely shade of blush!"

I don't get it, hip-hop culture, one of the most un-excepting sub-cultures towards homosexuality or anything even remotely resembling it and you got these little hoodlums runnin around in pink. Like I said, I got no problem with dudes wearin pink (more power to ya, u got balls if you do), but don't think for a second I'm gonna be scared of you beatin the **** outta me.

pale pink shirt is ok.
super duper strong pink LAcoste polo is ok too.
Pink Lascote shirts on guys is incredibly hott. I think because confidence is sexy, a guy who can pull off pink is automaticly sexy!

A lot of the urban guys began to wear a lot of pink Rocawear etc. after the rapper Camron wore this complete pink suit.

I personally do not like men in pink. I have no problem with it, it's just when I think pink on a man, I think of a pale pink dress shirt, and when I think pale pink dress shirt, I think with a navy blazer and red tie, and that makes me think county club on the weekends and disfunctional marriage which all adds up to a kind of preppy look that I just don't like. But if another guy want's to wear pink, it's cool by me. I don't think it makes him less masculine....quite the contrary, it makes him incredibly brave since most would immidiatly think "Feminine"
I'm not a fan of men wearing pink either. However, any man confident enough to wear it while still looking masculine, more power to him.

Perhaps a pink tie but that's all that would be attractive to me.*
I've always liked men in pink ties as well. The ideal would be a thin tie in bold pink. With a black suit jacket and white dress shirt. Sleek, but still sort of ironic. I want to try finding a picture now...
And yes, I agree that pink can easily be overdone.
Think Dumb and Dumber.

Don't like it . I prefer masculine looks.
Pink is a perfectly masculine colour... [/b][/quote]
Not in my book, sorry!

I'm not going to judge anyone wearing it as looking terrible.

BUT I don't find it attractive at all and I would find it a turn off if my bf was wearing a pink shirt -Although I'd probably be all over him anyways as usual... I'm not going to get into that though

I love to wear pink. Maybe it's because I'm from Florida and it was never that big of a deal. I usually go for brighter shades-the pale pink oxford is a little too eighties prep for me. I just made a HOT pink french terry polo but left all the edges and hems raw so it was a little rough. I wore it with blk and white pinstripe pants and flip-flops and got so many compliments. Maybe people are just used to seeing me in that colour.
