    For a man to wear pink in the 1970s was brave as it was perceived as a "sexual orientation" indicator. In the 1980s it became a bit more acceptable - for the brave and if the pink was more a "salmon" colour (not baby-girl pink)

    Then in the 1990s it became more mainstream. My boss at the time who was colour blind came to work with a pale pink sweater on. He thought it was beige and was horrified when I pointed out the actual colour. But people were complementing him on it (he had silver hair so it looked really nice on him) and so he kept wearing it. Now it is mainstream - but some guys will just balk at wearing it... "on principle".

    I am speaking of Australia here - where until recently men were very unadventurous in terms of personal presentation.
