    Since this is the all knowing "manly" forum what the view on blokes wearing pink shirts/t-shirts??
    Im my day the only people that wore pink were girls and fairies(all types)

    Now its all this new men stuff-everywhere I go theres blokes wearing pink--have they all lost their sense of real manliness??What is society coming to??

    Discuss.

    Obviously this post has accidentally landed in this forum. Nobody around here has a pink shirt or even knows anyone who has a pink shirt. Perhaps a confusion has crept into your mind having seen a Brother from a distance and thinking his naked manly torso was swathed in a pink garment.

    There are other forums that may help you, the Fag, Hags and Bicycles Forum for instance, I hear they wear pink when going for the brown. We sometimes also let the wimmin talk about stuff in the Handbags & Gladrags Forum but there won't be anyone there now as they should be queueing up outside the off-licences to replenish their men-folk's beer stocks in time for the rugby.

    I never mentioned that I knew anyone with a pink shirt-I was merely pointing out that there are some brothers going around dressed like wimmin folk in all floral dress and all that and was wondering what the brothers of this forums view on the subject is.

    Are these brothers in pink still to be treated like fellow "brothers" or should they be called "sisters"

    Should they be ostracised from society due to them being garbed in pink.

    Should they be banned from all manner of "real brothers" issues if theyre caught wearing wimmins clothes??

    I think we should be kind to the weak-of-mind who would wear pink but they could never be true Brethren. As for wearing wimmin's clothes, the thought shocked me so badly that I nearly spilled my breakfast before the head had even settled properly on it.

    PINK SHIRTS???!!?

    FOR MEN???!???

    Brother Hellrazer, of what is this sorcery you speak of? Have your wench bring you a yard of ale, you are clearly not in control of your senses.


  • Moderators, Arts Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 10,641 Mod ✭✭✭✭Hellrazer


    I thought it was the effect of the ale that was causing vision problems.But this morning as I was sober I once again observed this abomination.

    Where did you observe this ungodly sight?

    To offer the alternate viewpoint brothers, a fine beer belly follower in work often wears the same pink shirt. He tucks it into jeans and gets a good overflow going. I have to say it really shows off the belly and draws many eyes and comments in it's direction.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 16,793 ✭✭✭✭Hagar


    Wannabes are everywhere Brother copacetic, be on your guard.
    The fact that he can actually tuck in the shirt speaks volumes.

    Well, I have a wife. She has a pink shirt.

    If she is my possession, then her possessions must also be mine.

    Therefore, I have a pink shirt.

    I may need to have her dispose of it.

    You might have chanced a glimpse on the ultimate garment for gut carriers ...the Hawaiian shirt:

    Nothing ...nothing ...accentuates and compliments a beer gut and overall sloppy attitude like a Hawaiian shirt. At the same time the bright colours and patterns make a a clear statement that the wearer of this garment is indeed proud of their portly figure

    Careful, brother mikedragon32. By that logic, we can encompass wimmin's underware. Dangerous territory.

    Excellent, brother peasant, well clarified. Floral pink shirts, in, plain pink out.

    But since it's a wimmin whom he has presumably *phwoooaaaaar*ed with, logically, he'd be allowed to own them as a trophy?

    i too have seen the abomination that is the pink man-shirt wearer. Usually accompanied by a headfull of gel.

    Gents i put it to you that the rebellious womenfolk, *whispers* "the feminists" have started brainwashing once proud men. I've seen it happen, they hang around outside late bars and clubs and lure unsuspecting drunken Men with promises of flesh and more drink back at theirs. These men enter the house proud tall collossis and leave pale shadows of themselves, complete with manicures, hairgel and of course the dreaded baby pink shirt.

    NO MAN SHOULD EVER BE WEARING A COLOUR WITH "baby" IN ITS TITLE!

    True, but any brother here would have amassed a vast quantity of said trophies. If another brother were to walk in and see a wardrobe full of "trophies", well he could draw the wrong conclusions.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,939 ✭✭✭mikedragon32


    Surely, brother Tom, as long as I don't wear my trophies, I am in safe territory.

    With all your nagging YOU are on dangerous territroy!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,960 ✭✭✭DarkJager


    I have witnessed this atrocity just a few minutes ago. I had to shield my eyes from

    a) The sheer unspeakable horror of "poof fashion"
    b) To stop people seeing the stinging tears of anger welling up in my eyes like beer into an empty pint glass.

    I wish I could cry beer.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 34 finnykid


    Absolutely agree with you brother, it is just wrong.
    Cannot comprehend why any man would wear anything pink clothes wise

    Indeed you are.

    It is quite possible I may have paid to much attention to my wench. I will desist. Though I felt I must warn my brethren on the dangers of misinterpretation of a wardrobe full of wimmins clothes.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 36,634 ✭✭✭✭Ruu_Old


    Below is the only pink item I would consider wearing. :)

    When I asked one pink shirt wearer why he had choosen to wear pink, his answer was to why do I wear black? Odd as it'd seem, I think they see wearing a pink shirt as normal:eek:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 7,960 ✭✭✭DarkJager


    This is a very serious offence... What if he's typing his next post while wearing a pink shirt?? Surely blasphemy in this manliest of manly forums!!?? ;)

    yes indeed, surfing the net for pictures of male models in pink shirts, while sporting a pink shirt. Heinous.

    However, I am sure brother thrill has a much more reasonable explanation.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,563 ✭✭✭connundrum


    They said it was teh Salmon, not pink atall!!


    /cries white wine :(

    brother, I'm worried that you appear to have had this images to hand. May I
    ask is there rhyme or reason for this?

    The OP'S post left me in a state of shock. That any man
    would wear pink shirts left me with a slim grip on reality.

    So to rebut this heinous statement i did some extensive research
    ( about 2 minutes on Google ) only to be further shocked by the
    images that poured forth from my screen.

    I was not of sound mind when posting those links as i was still
    reeling from the effects the vile images have had on my sanity.

    Forgive me Brothers, for i knew not what i was doing.
