Is it just me or where I live, but is it becoming less acceptable for men to go shirtless?

Yeah. I've notice that too. My profile picture is shirtless on social media, and it draws a lot of negative comments... although so far none from this site.


Aging population but not down in Florida. not to wretch on the beach with beer gutted 60 year old's parading around.


When I was more of businessman and less of a roofer, I'd keep my shirt on. Now that I am on the roof more, the shirt goes flying off rather quickly. Altho I am slim and don't have a beer gut, (I used to) it's a comfort thing. In mixed company, life in general, I always wear a shirt except at the pool or beach. Most men don't need to take off their shirts... the gut is already highly visible.
( I see it with the women too..... in general America's physical shape is poor)

I'd prefer to see anyone shirtless rather than Accrington Royalty in th'Asda in their onesies #havesomeselfrespectffs!


I can only speak for myself, but personally I'm definitely less willing to be shirtless in public than I was when I was 20 something and doing physical training every morning.

I don't see men shirtless often either. I don't really know how much it's changed from before other than the risk of sun exposure, like some have mentioned, and perhaps the fact that a lot of outdoor labor jobs are more mechanized - which was where I think it seemed more prevalent


Also because of obese problems men do not want to show off their man boobs !   Lol


This is an issue I had no awareness of. What do you think is the reason?

Don't know. I just remember growing up in the 70s. There were times when, for the group I was with, the "No shoes no shirt no service" sign was a real barrier. My dad was a sailor (merchant marine and then tugboats) and most of our family friends were blue collar hard drinking people who were shirtless a lot. I never see groups of people with shirtless men anymore. I took of my shirt the other day at a splash pad with my kids and was the only one there. When I noticed I felt self conscious.


I think it's less acceptable. I seem to see fewer shirtless men except at the pool.
