a pink shirt

kristin says that every guy should own at least one pink shirt. while shopping yesterday for some new shorts at the one store that wasn't closed on easter sunday (both costco & the rogue run store were the other stores we were hoping to get some shopping done at) kristin insisted that i purchase my first pink shirt. while not totally objecting to the purchase of a pink shit i am a bit leery to say the least. rather than going "all in" i'm starting off with a cheap cotton pink t-shirt prior to spending the big bucks on a nice pink dress shirt. i'll take my chances & wear this bad boy into the office today just to see how much grief i get from the guys. i'm not really sure that fashion statements coming from software engineers is a really good test though... what do you girls & guys think about the pink shirt?

yeah you can't take fashion tips from the guys in our office......with that being said it's really bright.....i would venture to call it "hot pink." Alex wears a lot of pastels due to me persuading him to. He has light blue, green, and purple.

I would suggest a lighter hue of pink for when you spend the "big bucks" though.

Brian, I was close...very close but figured I would you let you off. Besides, who am I to judge...I don't have much of any fashion sense anyway.

i liked it. the tanner you get, the better that brighter color will wear.

but for a dress shirt you'll definitely want something lighter. which banana will have a couple of weeks before memorial weekend.

keep the bright t and use it to go to happy hour some friday after work in the summer ... when you're swimming 5000 meters a day ...
