I must admit that I have never been too fond of pink shirts but this, just in from The Daily Mail ,could change all that.
According to research by Cotton USA Pink shirt – which surveyed 1500 shirt wearers – those who favour pink, as opposed to the usual staples of blue and white, are likely to be more confident, get more admiring glances from female colleagues and earn an extra grand a year or so salary. Men who wear pink are also twice as likely to have a Master’s degree than those who favour white shirts, with one in ten pink shirt wearers having a PHD. They also apparently have a lower carbon footprint – though quite how they worked that out is beyond me.
Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, International Marketing Manager for Cotton USA, says ‘Pink is a colour more men have been embracing recently and it’s encouraging that they are not afraid to experiment with brighter colours. We spend most of our days at work and it’s good for company standards, our own confidence and work ethic to remain smart, but that doesn’t mean you have to be boring.
Anyhow here are five pink shirts worth pondering over.
