I once bought my brother a scarf with white and black stripes on it which I figured was quite toned down but it was still too bright. So, I bought him what I called a "grandpa" scarf: boring beige. He loved that scarf.

I don't quite understand why it's more accepted for women to wear colors than for men. The most daft theory I can come up with while being low on cafeine this morning is that deep down, men are still hunters, hence the preference for camouflage, thus, toned down colors.
I like bright colors on men too. Just not pink and lilac
Any bright shade of green, blue, orange is OK with me
