Menwear enthusiast and blogger Akin Faminu breaks down how a man can wear pink…

Akin Faminu wants the modern man to wear more pink hue and he's making a case for it in a new edit!

The menswear enthusiast/fashion influencer/blogger speaks boldly about men owning a piece of pink in their wardrobe and in an edit, he fires up the look in an urban get up.


According to him; "Certain shades of colour have a subtext, and pink is one of those colours that is always under represented in a man's wardrobe.

When styled properly – rather than as an afterthought – pink is personality. Wearing pink automatically tells people you’re a confident character. Its absence from most outfits means it stands out in yours and, so long as you wear it properly, it’s a statement that flatters.

The notion of men in pink has oscillated in and out of acceptance over the last century. In the shape of a pink Oxford shirt, it’s become a prep staple, ideally paired with white or off-white trousers to make it pop. For fans of the blazer and pocket square, it’s a summer look seemingly impervious to trends.

In the edit, the fashion enthusiast styles pink in a casual yet coolest way ever sporting pink in a bomber jacket! On the inspiration behind the look, he shares; "as military inspired subcultures’ styles swing back into fashion, this is a look worth tapping. Bomber jackets have been given a luxe update in recent years, with both designers and high street brands alike reworking them in premium colors such as pink, and if you’re looking for an easy throw-on statement piece, a Pink bomber could be just the ticket.


A bomber jacket may not be the most obvious choice to layer over formal wear, but it can look just as sharp as a blazer. I opted for a proper oxford shirt to be worn under this bomber to express this. It gives the whole look a very casual but semi formal vibe, paired with the distressed jeans and a pair of white shoes, rather than sneakers as would have been expected.

Despite appearing punchy, pink’s no struggle to slot into what you already wear. It plays especially well with the masculine colours you’re already repping like blue for example.

Real men wear pink. And since they do it with confidence, you can too. Just make sure it’s the right one for you, and that you’re careful with its placement.

Do you already wear pink? If so, how do you get it into your outfits? And are there shades of pink which no man – despite his steely self-esteem – can pull off?
