I wanted to float this question to the boards... Is it ever ok for a man's nipples to be visible through a shirt?
I ask because I've recently lost a chunk of weight and want to go down to the shirt size that fits my new measurements. The big problem is that I inherited a 'barrel chest' from my grandfather and some shirts I put on always show my nipples poking through them like it's cold everywhere I go.
Is it ok for the world to see my man-nipples? Should I just wear an undershirt?
Just in case you want to know, it's polo shirts that this seems to always be a problem with.
I call it "perma-nip" and doesn't bother me. What bothers me is if you wear a white shear dress shirt and you can see the colour of the nip through it. That's tacky. If you've got perma-nip, throw on an undershirt and wear 'em loud and proud.
I have the same problem. I have a fairly large muscular chest and no matter what shirt I where my nipples tend to show up through them. Even undershirts sometimes don't fix the problem (and I sweat like crazy when I wear one). I think as long as your comfortable in your own skin it doesn't matter unless you can see skin color through the shirt.
