is pink a "manly" color??
Is pink a manly color?? I believe it takes a real man to wear pink, but what's your opinion??

Being manly/womanly/masculine/feminine shouldn't be defined by color, but that's just my opinion.

So, for your poll, I choose neither.

Is just an opinion question. What if an average school boy wears pink, would he be considers a loser or the opposite of losers???

Is bright crimson red the best colour for a Ferrari?

MUAHAHAHAHAHA 2012-09-26 13:23

Don't you think the way you formulate your question seems to lean more towards no?

I unno, I like light pink dress shirt. I don't like hot pink, it stings my eyes.

Velsy 2012-09-26 13:58

I vote no

But I dont mind it when I see people doing it for fund raising purposes, say like Breast cancer foundations and stuff like that.

And you don't get much manlier than Lupin.

Of course. All fast cars should be red. It is a standard that red things are three times faster (other than a certain telco).

Guys, please refrain from posting pics of people with "messages" on them. If you want to say that the color doesn't fit some folks out there, then just say it.

Any color can be manly, depending on the context.

Hiroi Sekai 2012-09-26 18:07

Pink's a boss colour. Why can't it be manly, screw society.

blakstealth 2012-09-26 18:24

Nothing wrong with pink. I don't own any myself, but I always see guys wear pink.

Hooves 2012-09-26 19:31

"Tough guys wear pink"

So they count it as a "manly" color.

Its a gender thing really.. Its what society sees it as. I once herd that Pink used to be a boy color, and blue for girls. Red was associated as male, and pink being seen as a lighter shade of red was used for boys. You can see Kings wearing the color red, so it might have relation with associating pink with male royalty. A change in Social Norm

It depends on how you wear it. Personally, it doesn't go with my skin color. I have gotten away with purple, though :)

I'm a girl, and I can only get away with so much pink due to being rather pale... a pink top, or a pink skirt with a black top and stockings/tights, is about the best I can do.

I tried pink sweet lolita once and it didn't end well. I'm going to stick to blackxwhite amaloli from now on. :3

Although I voted "yes" just cause, the idea of whether it's "manly" or not is kind of silly. It's a colour tone. It's .. yeah, just a colour tone.

So here's a list of some of the shades of pink:

Basically with this much variety, you just find the one that matches your style and your skin-tone. Everyone can wear pink! I know I do! :)

EDIT: Personally, matching the shirts I think I have against that scale.. I wear "pink" "lavender pink" "lavender rose" and "rose pink"

DonQuigleone 2012-09-27 00:42

I don't think men or women look particularly good in pink, to be honest. It's a rather garish colour.

Only possible exception is as a blouse/suit shirt. And even then.
