yeah it's the new black

2004-05-16 09:25:08 AM  
It's ironic that Big Boi is so tiny in that pic.
2004-05-16 09:27:07 AM  
Just because Vogue states that Pink is in, does not mean that it is true.

If that theory worked I should say I am a millionare, its bound to come true!

Part of me is longing to cuddle the model in the article because he looks so damned cuddly, and part of me wants to point and giggle at the big girlie girl-girl. So, I'm undecided.
2004-05-16 09:44:04 AM  
Wow, that's soooo 80's.

Jim Spellicy, a "pastel kind of a guy," wears his Tommy Hilfiger pink dress shirts with red polka-dot ties.

It's not a fashion article, it's an "AskMen" article entitled "How to not get laid"...

"Wow, that's soooo 80's."

Funny you say that, little miss. A pink oxford shirt from the early 80's was the only piece of pink clothing I've owned.

Except for my socks and underwear when the ocassional red garment gets mixed in the wash.
2004-05-16 11:04:17 AM  
My daddy told me when I was a boy that there are only two kinds of guys that wear pink, and I ain't a preacher.
2004-05-16 11:07:08 AM  

Did your pink oxford come complete with a little alligator applique?

/guilty of owning an Izod in every color.
2004-05-16 11:20:55 AM  
Hello? it's the 80's, they want their bad clothing back!
2004-05-16 11:34:36 AM  
I refuse to ever EVER EVER wear any piece of clothing that is pink. No real man should be caught dead in pastels. I'm fine with purple though. Purple speaks of royalty. Plus, a couple of my favorite sports teams thought that using purple as their main color wasn't such a bad idea, so I don't really have a choice.

I thought that gay was the new black, btw.
2004-05-16 12:30:19 PM  
Pink! Pink? Nothing wrong with a little color to keep the woman happy, but pink? I'm drawing the line, Bawanaal don't wear no pink...

Silly metrosexuals really are clueless.

Don't they try to say pink is the new hotness every year? I have definantly heard this before.
2004-05-16 01:12:56 PM  
I never got the whole fashion thing. I doubt I ever will. I mean, who decides this shiat? Is there some Grand Board of Fashion where pompous jackasses sit around and arbitrarily choose colors and styles every few months? I just don't understand.

Beyond all that, how the hell can anyone be interested in this kind of stuff? Every time I read an article like that or see a fashion magazine sitting on a shelf, I can't help but think to myself, "How interesting of a person can one possibly be if you're hung up on what clothes people entirely unrelated to you in any way, shape or form are wearing?".

I dunno. I don't get it.

/fashion == t3h suk
2004-05-16 01:30:31 PM  
I guess it was inevitable. The fashion companies went through warehouses of crap that didn't sell 20 years ago, and decided to try again. Some fools will soon have their money parted from them. ;-)
2004-05-16 01:30:33 PM  
I'm a little frustrated with all the frat boys running around in pink now. I mean, are they finally coming out of the closet, or just making it harder for me to figure out who I can bone?

2004-05-16 01:31:00 PM  
down south prep boys wear pink polos all the time
2004-05-16 01:32:05 PM  
Remind me again why I should emulate the rich and famous, especially those with questionable morals?
2004-05-16 01:34:12 PM  
it's not pink. it's lightish red.
2004-05-16 01:35:47 PM  
It's not pink. It's white with a slightly reddish hue.
2004-05-16 01:35:49 PM  
not unlikely! my co worker came into work wearing a pink shirt, and a school mate who sat next to me also wore pink. coincidently they were black folks. I'm assuming it's the latest trend for black people
2004-05-16 01:36:22 PM  
Pink is definitely the 'It' color of the season. As you may recall, a month or so ago, gang members were wearing pink to school as identifiers or for affiliation.

/too lazy to dig up old thread
2004-05-16 01:36:33 PM  
not pink, not lightish red, its called salmon.
2004-05-16 01:37:54 PM  
"Pink is hot for spring. The look is fresh and exuberant," said Hilfiger. "The feel is sexy and sophisticated, but still fun. And pink really captures that energy."

and to think a grown man said that with a straight face. and no i didn't say a straight grown man.

and here's a fashion inspiration; The weekly describes the rapper as someone "who's comfortable wearing saddle shoes, pearl bracelets and plenty of pink."

thanks but no thanks.
2004-05-16 01:38:49 PM  
Pink is the new blue. Blue is the new black. Black is the new plaid. And, chartruese is always fabulous.
2004-05-16 01:39:48 PM  
Salmon is a fish, was a fish, and always will be a fish. This is why i only wear midnight and rust-colored clothes

//see how stupid it sounds?
2004-05-16 01:42:04 PM  
I hate pink. I HATE pink. pink is for girly girls and uber-gay guys.

/won't somebody think of the pink-haters?
2004-05-16 01:42:27 PM  
Ill wear black and blue.

Thank you.

Anybody who's seen the film knows why a guy would wear a pink shirt.
2004-05-16 01:43:28 PM  
What? Did Miami Vice make a comeback and not tell anybody about it?
2004-05-16 01:44:23 PM  
not unlikely at and pastels have made flaming d-bags look cool here for years
2004-05-16 01:44:43 PM  
The only cool pink thing is Floyd.

Atlanta? I wonder if they based this hypothesis on observation of fashion trends in the Cheshire Bridge Road area... lol
2004-05-16 01:45:00 PM  
Fashion is one of the many reasons I hate society.

/die fashion, die.
2004-05-16 01:47:47 PM  
I guess I'm in the fashion-conscious minority here on Fark, but I think pink is already starting to get played out.

The whole pastel, preppy-style thing will be in for a while, but everyone initially jumped on the pink bandwagon and now it just seems kind of stupid to me.

And I think I'll leave it at that, as to not get too roasted by flamers who will perceive me as being a flamer.

cam'ron has been doing that shiat for atleast a year now. Hip hop starts another trend, you honkey biatches.

cam'ron has been doing that shiat for atleast a year now. Hip hop starts another trend, you honkey biatches.

Cam'ron also wears Miskeen shirts that look like they were fingerpainted by a third grader and are so big that the entire Dip Set could fit into one of them.

If you must attribute this trend to something in Hip Hop culture, look no further than everyones newest sweetheart Kanye West.

Am I the only one who feared some double meaning of "pink" when I clicked the link?

/hey, it rhymes. I'm a poet and I didn't realise.

2004-05-16 01:54:24 PM  
Wear pink and end up black and blue.

2004-05-16 01:55:33 PM  
Yeah, xBodo99, I can see where you are coming with that. Pink doesn't help at all. And even the straight ones are doing it... WTF.

You should fix your profile pic.
2004-05-16 01:56:37 PM fookin' way. The only pink I'm slippin' into isn't something you'd wear around town...
2004-05-16 01:57:43 PM

2004-05-16 01:58:55 PM  
I'd wear Pink...

Wear her out,that is. :)

Pink has been the color for the Warped Tour crowd for some time now; I figured it was a girl-magnet, I'm-so-confident-in-my-masculinity-I-can-do-this kind of thing

// Red Base //

Donut: Dude, this is sweet! Command was so happy thay I got the blue flag they gave me my own color armor.

// Grif and Simmons look at each other. //

Grif: Uh, hey Donut.

Donut: What?

Simmons: Uh, about your armor.

Donut: What about it?

Simmons: Uh, how do I put this? You armor is... uh... it's a little... um... Grif, you wanna help me out here?

Grif: It's pink! Your armor is freaking pink!

Simmons: Yeah, thats it. It's pink.

Donut: Pink! My armor's not pink.

Grif: Pink.

Simmons: Yeah. Definately pink.

Donut: You guys are colorblind. Why would they give me pink armor?

Grif: Hey, don't ask, don't tell.

Simmons: // giggles // That's not funny.

Grif: // laughs // It's a little funny.

Donut: It's not pink, it's like a... lightish red.

Grif: Guess what? They already have a color for lightish red. Know what it's called? Pink!

Donut: I hate you guys.

// Sarge and Lopez come up ramp //

Sarge: Well hello dirtbags. And a fine hello to you madam.

Donut: It's light red.

Sarge: Don't get your panties all in a wad there Barbie. Do you have a package for me?

Donut: Yes, sir.

Sarge: Excellent.

Donut: They said this speech unit should work with Lopez.

Grif: Speech unit?

Donut: Here you go.

Sarge: Affirmative. Command was freah out of speech modules when I started building Lopez. But once I get this baby installed I'll finally have someone intelligent to talk to. No offense, Simmons.

Simmons: Oh, don't worry. I know who you meant, sir.

Grif: Wait a second. Lopez is a robot?

Simmons: Of coarse he is. You didn't notice that he never talks?

Grif: I just thought he was a really quiet guy.

Sarge: And the fact that he sleeps standing up and drinks motor oil didn't get your attention.

Grif: Well, I did think the motor oil thing was a bit odd. I just thought he was trying to impress me.

Simmons: Hey, sir, you really should ground yourself before handling that card.

Sarge: How come?

Simmons: Because static could damage the card.

Sarge: C'mon. That's an urban legend used to sell those stupid bracelets.

// Simmons and Grif exchange glances //

Sarge: And I suppose pop rocks and soda pop are going to make my stomach blow up. Yeaow!

// Card discharges static //

Simmons: Sir, I won't say I told you so, sir.

Sarge: Good. I hate to make Strawberry Shortcake here my new favorite Private.

Donut: It's not pink! It's lightish red!
2004-05-16 01:59:52 PM  
Um, no. If my man was wearing pink, ... uh, just NO.

Pink is for girls. Pink is in for GIRLS, not men. Ew!
2004-05-16 02:00:57 PM  
it doesnt matter. the people who shop at their abercrombie (and places of the like) always identified themselves as sheep when it comes to clothing, so its just that same retarded crowd that will get sucked into this shiat. only now they'll just look even more feminine in doing so.
