Can I, a man whose clothes comes from Marks & Spencer (US: think JC Penney), get away with having a pink mobile phone?
I, apparently, am more vane than I think I am. I want a new mobile, and the model that I like is the Samsung Galaxy SII
. Trouble is, I think it looks terribly dull in black or white, and I really don't like phone cases. Luckily, it does come in pink
, which is described as coral pink. And I really like the look of it. I just want to know if it fits my style.
My style is staid and male. I'm 34, I wear moleskin trousers and Oxford shirts to work, and on the weekends, polo shirts. Normally covered with a plain merino crew neck jumper. I have short brown hair, centre parted. I'll feel dull if I buy the black or white phone, but don't want to feel embarrassed by the pink one if I get it.
Persuade me to fit the pink into my staid identity. Or tell me it'll look like I'm using my girlfriend's phone. Preferably the persuasion, though.
