  1. I wore an old pink Brooks OCBD yesterday under a shetland. Brightened my day anyway. GLH

  2. I must have six pink-coloured shirts including my latest OCBD from Mercer and Sons. But, as a girl once said: " Pink is in doll, pink is in ! "

  3. "Chappy", for those who don't know him, is an excellent yacht broker: https://www.northropandjohnson.com/yacht-brokers/agent_details.htm?organisation_group_id=180&group_name=newport&agent_id=765&name=jonathan-chapman-sales-broker

  6. One of my favorite combinations is a light weight medium/dark green v-neck with a light pink Brooks Brothers broadcloth shirt. I also like the shirt with a navy or a medium grey sweater but there is just something about that green and pink combination.

  7. I have bright pink polo shirts from Sunspel (lightweight jersey) and Cordings (heavier pique). Both were made in England and women seem to love them. Pink business shirts were in fashion in the late 80s and early 90s but it's not my style.

    1. I never understood why Bubbas in the South wore pink - polos, button downs, tees. This explains it.

    2. Bubbas in the South? Probably one of those names that should be left for use by one who is a Bubba. Yours truly, Bubba

  10. The headline may remind Anglophiles of Thomas Pink of Jermyn Street.

    1. Thomas Pink is a shadow of its former self. Its shops have been closed for a few months for total refurbishment. It has rebranding as Pink Shirtmaker and dropped the Thomas.

      Pink typically charges top dollar (£130/£140) for mediocre shirts, European in style, that were made in Asia. The country of manufacture has now been removed from the shirts' labels.

      Pink may have a store on Jermyn Street but not the quality and style of the top London shirtmakers.

  11. And then there were/are the pink tie guys. A distinct personality type. Smart as a whip and always hustling. Always fun. Eminently likeable. But count your fingers after you shake hands with them. Could rely on them to get things done. Just don't ask how they did it.

  12. The "Preporatzi" caught me! This is a dark pink gingham Oxford from Brooks Brothers and a really great Saturday shirt - Chappy

  13. I'm a fan of pink shirts and have a few from BB, both ocbd and linen button downs. Khakis, of course. Stone is more traditional, I suppose, but I like British Tan as well.

    I live in Idaho now and generally get a little razzing when I'm wearing a pink shirt (most guys around here are in western wear but some of us still fight the good fight). ;o)
