    For guys. I see it on occasion in South Florida...guys walking around with jeans, shoes, and no shirt. Walking along the street or in a shopping center. Is this socially acceptable? Do you do it?

    Discuss

    Edit: not necessarily at a beach, but at public places where you wouldn't expect to see it (malls, parks, crosswalks, gas-stations, movie theaters, gym, downtown, etc)

    If it's a hot day and I am outside exercising, then sometimes yes. I wouldn't right now, since I am pretty heavy, but when I am in decent shape, then yes.

    I do, though I live in a beach city in Los Angeles...lots of people do around here.

    EDIT: I do this outside, and though it may extend to a gas station or convenience store on rare occasion, it certainly wouldn't be considered normal in many other contexts. Oh, at home, it's shirtless mostly always.

    Occasionally, but I'm usually wearing board shorts and flip flops and skating around on a sunny day.

    A shopping center?? That is pretty weird. Although i wish it WERE socially acceptable to just walk around shirtless everywhere, cause i'd do it.

    In the warm months, I almost always have my shirt off at home. But, like Rusk, I am a very sexy man. So I don't "show off" much in public.

    Nah, I'm pasty white and have nothing to show off. I also live above the 53rd parallel N, almost Artic circle tier shit. There's like 8 months of winter here, 4 months without snow if we're lucky. Technically that's summer but it don't feel like it.

    Was a high of about 60 F here today, and the forecast for the rest of May so far doesn't go above 60. And then we get like one week a year where it's like 90 F or close to 100 and it kills everyone here, considering barely anyone has or really needs A/C.

    You kiddin me, brah?

    When it's hot out, you can't pay me to keep my shirt on. Even when I do, it's almost always one that I cut the sleeves off of.

    Occasionally,

    Always shirtless at home in summer.

    I will walk to the servo across the street shirtless, or anywhere near the beach but otherwise not really.

    FYI sexy as fuck.

    I live in a beach area here in San Diego, so it is common to see guys walking around without shirts and girls walking down the street in bathing suits or a t-shirt & bikini bottoms. You see it in some stores along the beach (shops that are also mainly geared to beach goers, convenience aka liquor stores) but not at shopping centers or malls.

    Inland, not that common (but I don't frequently go into inland residential areas so maybe they walk around without shirts then put one on before going shopping).

    I used to. Until the city banned me for causing too many women to die from drowning and floods.

    Same here at home. Sometimes I sit around in my just my underwear. Cuts down on laundry.


    Also do this, although not so much on the skateboard anymore.
    Common sight here, with or without the board and also on a bike.
