Pink business shirts are fairly popular here in the US, almost
exclusively among the non-technical managerial or wannabe-managerial
crowd. (Their words are unimportant, and we do not hear them.)

I believe a survey would find that most people consider pink business
shirts on males as a sign that the wearer may also own a wide-lapel
green polyester leisure suit.
