THINK PINK!

Leif-Erik Hannikainen stands out in a sea of men in power suits and white dress shirts.

His style is recognizably Ivy – classic and individual, avoiding the more predictable combinations. And yes, he wears pink!

A lot of Filipinos think pink isn't the most macho of colours. (oh, come on! Wake up guys!) but European businessmen have know for ages that you can’t go wrong with a pink dress shirt.

My dad for instance have been pairing his pink dress shirts with his trusty bespoke slim khaki and gray trousers (yes, my dad and I have slim – almost chicken like legs). The amazing thing with pink, it suits everyone.

In fact, I just had two shirts made!

I honestly love pink on a man. Seriously Ivy preppy. Pastels on a man are hot.

Hence, me owning more than pink dress shirts in plain, gingham, plaid and oxford.

Pink is pure masculine!
