    Hmmm...I think it's kind of an original style of clothing. It's kinda cool imo.

    Only females are allowed to wear pink, if a guy wears pink it's abnormal. Guys who generally wear the color pink tend to be homosexual.

  8. That first shirt at Wimbledon already looked like a blouse. Maybe he's just preparing for the inevitable middle aged moobs.

    For the record, some people consider pink to be fairly "GQ", but those are definitely feminine styled.

    I don't mind pink. Men can wear it just fine (unless it a really, really pale pink.) But the ruffles on the front is metro.

    If you want to make Federer look less classic, refer to my Fedal photoshops. Scroll down to find it.

    I think guys can wear pink but it depends on the situation. In this one, I think he'll look weird in it. Especially with the weird lines on the front of the shirt.
    The v-neck on the RF T-shirt doesn't help either. The v-neck RF T-shirts look pretty good since they have a very shallow V but with the pink, it kinda looks especially girly

    Guys who tend to say such things tend to stereotype Americans. The stereotype you're thinking of is "old fart." :)

    No way, it takes more manliness to wear pink than any other colour.

    Therefore, pink is manly. :lol:

    Then why do guys like it when girls wear pink if its manly? lol It's not manly, but its not girly its just a color and a shirt. I myself have a couple pink shirts (one button-up and one polo) and I don't really think anything of it when I wear either.

    Any man can wear pink- if they can't then it's their own insecurities. It's just a color not a defining stigma.

    I think Nike is surreptitiously (and slowly) converting Federer into a chick :mrgreen:

    Salmon contains more orange.

    Pink is the most manly colour existing.

    Only thing is, when you wear it wrong, it becomes agy. And that's not positive.

    Yeah, but just because you can wear pink doesn't mean you can wear it well. I can't see Federer pulling it off to be honest. He should pull out the Darth Vader outfit again, that was a good look for him.

    That's ridiculous. You just can't win in pink. That probably makes you lose all your strength.

    Eh, I'd wear a darker shade, but it looks alright. Also, the little ruffles at the front are a little much.

    It seems there are many Macho Men in this board ah?
    What's wrong with pink??It's just another color that will fit really well with black or khaki.
    I have many shirts Burberry,Hugo Boss,Lacoste either totally pink or mixed with pink,and I'll tell ya,when I was single the best nights I had was wearing pink,myself(good looking in pink) meant hot blond girls around me,and pink is what I like when I go to a steak house,bright pink in the middle,no pun intended,lol.
    Rafa was in pink last year in RG,and the outfit was nice.
    Nothing wrong with pink,women love it.

    I see nothing wrong with pink. But the style of the shirt just isn't working for me. With those weird vertical lines and such.

    For instance, Nadal in pink isn't too bad. It's just the style of Federer's shirt that I find weird.

    I agree,that shirt wasn't well designed.The material is probably good and the color is beautiful but the style of the shirt with the vertical lines are bad.If they took those lines off then it'd be a nice shirt.

    Yeah, this shirt looks good on Nadal, but I can picture that polo on Federer and I imagine it being an eyesore at best.

    This pink is as effeminate as it gets and yet with the smoke shorts, I think Fed is one of the rare guys who can pull it off. Rafa can wear a darker or hotter version, but this light, I don't think so.

    The first jacket and murses are one thing... The sweater is actually pretty good. Old school you know? They used to all play in sweaters and vests.

    As for the pink, oh dear God no! Nadal lost the first time he wore pink. Federer should say no! Nadal didn't look good in it, and neither will Federer!

    Pink RF on his practice shirt is another thing as well. I've seen that a few times and haven't been too opposed to it. FULL ON pink is ridiculous. Stick to the black buddy...

    Atleast it's not shocking pink which would look horrible.
    I think the shirt is good.It's a very light shade of pink,the lines look just fine and it fits him perfectly.
    Now I hope he's got decent shorts .
    He can't wear black,red,blue and such colours all the time-a little bit of change won't hurt.
    As long as the shade is fine it'll work.
    I'm not driven by stereotypes so I have no problems with it as long as the shade suits him-I think it will.

    Good for you for not letting society dictate what colors you wear. That would be like women avoiding powder blue because it's the color for baby boys.

    Pure commercialism.

    It looks like the shirt he wore at Wimbledon. That was a very nice top. I don't think it's ruffles, it's just lines. Anyway, it doesn't matter what the shirt looks like by itself. It'll depend on what it looks like when he wears it. I like it. I think it'll look nice.
