Pink Power in Nantucket Reds
hink Pink. Pink trousers and shorts are a summer essential.
The different hues of blue from the dark of the Royal Navy blue to the light of the RAF blue are a staple for most male wardrobes, particularly shirts and sweaters. No surprise then that pink trousers and shorts fit in exceedingly well.
Classic casual examples are the Nantucket Reds from Murray's Toggery Shop in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Nantucket Reds are reputedly adapted from the uniform of the New York Yacht Club and the fetching faded pink looks great with an RAF blue shirt and Navy Blue sweater or vice versa, whether as shorts or long trousers. Murray's also have a selection with embroidered motifs if you're feeling daring.
I'm unaware of a UK stockist of authentic Murray's Nantucket Reds, but there are alternatives out there. Otherwise, why not get some shipped over if the shipping is agreeable. Who doesn't like waiting for a parcel? Better still, it would be a very nice excuse to take a trip over to that lovely part of the US.
