Nice . One could get a reputation for oneself wearing that colour around these parts , right enough, ken.

Ha ha, I've always wondered about men so insecure in their "maleness" that pink scares them.
While working at Brooks Bros. a lot of male customers would buy every color of shirt we had, show them the pink one, and they acted like it was radioactive! A shirt we stocked since the mid- 50's, that couldn't be more Ivy league "conservative"...

A colour I dislike in every other garment... but shirts. A pink shirt is versatile as few other shades are, it looks fantastic in a sunny day -given you're not of the whiter-than-milk type, mind you- and enlivens a formal dark-suit attire in a way the archetypal pale blue shirt can't.

Don't have a problem with a dash of colour but pink resides closely to floral print shirts and OTT Paisley prints , a bit too flamboyant for my style - but hey , if that's whit floats ones sailing craft then by all means , indulge .😇😇😜

I thought this might be handy to have in the wardrope for a wee trip to the away end next season , or the one after that , or the one after that -or whenever we are allowed to congregate again . .(please delete as appropriate. .). .who knows , they might even bring back the porridge-munching kiosks.

Love that collar.

Yep, those are nice, Simon. Part of the new Ska & Soul range, if I'm not mistaken?

I've liked a few of their tops recently but never sure of the quality. Does anyone have any experience of their gear that could advise?
