Someone I know who recently attended a business seminar said that their speaker gave them a very important success tip: "There is a particular shade of pink which, if worn to a business proposal presentation, would ensure the wearer of an approval."
Since I make a lot of sales/advertising/creative pitches myself, I scoured the Internet for pics of men in pink, so I could get an idea of what shade that might be. Check them out:
Players in Pink: The Catani Football Team (above) and the Middlesex Country Cricket Club (below) dress up in support of breast cancer awareness.
Arashi during their Around Asia Tour 2008.
Sprockettes (All-Ladies Mini Bike Dance Troup) tees look cool on angry-looking guys.
Dave Batista at WWE's Diva of the Year 2009 (where he did a "Kenya West").
Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio introduced pink fashion to disgruntled inmates.
The way I see it, any pink shirt can make a tough guy look tame, and a hardened criminal appear harmless.
But beware, it can make guys look downright silly, too!
(Top Pic) The pink Fujio Akatsuka Bearbrick was created by the Beams retail chain in Japan to promote Mangart Beams T, the new line of Manga-inspired Tees at their concept shop in Daikanyama, Tokyo.
The bear is based on the Iyami character created by Fujio Akatsuka (1935-2008), a famous Japanese manga artist. You can check out his official website here.
