Who says real men don’t wear pink? This super flattering tee comes in half a dozen colors but we think blush pink is a standout that adds a rosy tint to an already stylish look. The shirt itself is sustainably and ethically made from French terry, using non-toxic dyes that won’t fade to keep him in the pink – or sage or midnight … Price: $58
