Pink is unusual for men, isn’t it? It is a question of a man’s masculinity. The color is too pretty for a gallant character he portrays.
But it takes confidence to wear light colors. Men in pink don’t have insecurities having a pink bearing above his skin.
A new study reveals that men who wore pink earns £1,000 more yearly. Compared to those who wear the traditional colors, these men are better qualified yet half of them take the public transportation to work, leaving a lower carbon footprint.
The same study reveals that men in pink are twice as likely to hold a Master’s degree. 10% of pink wearers have a PhD extension on their name.
And the ladies love the pink color. Men in pink get more compliments and romances from female colleagues.
Pink is historically a man’s color. Men, for centuries, dress more elaborately than women. The noble knights and celebrated kings wore exaggerated clothes. In the late 18th century, pink was common shade for a man, says Bronwyn Cosgrave, author of Costume & Fashion: A Complete History.
Today, men are coming back to a freer fashion. One in four men feels more attractive when in pink. “Pink is a colour more men have been embracing recently and it’s encouraging that they are not afraid to experiment with brighter colours”, added Stephanie Thiers-Ratcliffe, International Marketing Manager for Cotton USA.
Another color deemed feminine before was purple. But in today’s society, men in purple shirts get the most pay raise, and are more likely to drive a car worth £20,000 or more.
The generalization that “pink is for women and blue is for men” is diffusing. Pink, blue and any other color is now for men and women.
