It does feel good to have been able to keep my shirt off 24 hours a day at home, but I would certainly cover up when appropriate

@Carl. I dont think there is a need. But sometimes it depends on the situation and the company you are with. For example if I am at an activity with people who are prudish or women I dont take off my shirt. When Im with just a group of guys like in the gym then I take it off.

This is interesting.  Two and a half years ago i started rock climbing; mainly indoor bouldering but now also a lot of outdoors roped climbing (toproping,  solo toproping and lead (sports).  A climbing club I climb at introduced a no shirts off policy.  I had a bit of a debate about whether climbing without a shirt is 'innapropriate'.  People even suggested it was wrong 'in front of children'.  I used toALWAYS climb without a shirt and am almosty always shirtless at home in summer.  However, the debate about shirtless climbing has meant i don't climb shirtless anymore at the climbing club I NORMALLY go to that DOES allow shirtless climbing because now I feel self conscious.  To be honest I feel I have a very good body for 53 yet now feel maybe I should 'cover up'?  AS fit as I am I DO have lose skin (it happens) so I'm wondering if people think there's like an age limit??

Having a shirt free morning while watering my lawn.

I feel a lot more comfortable with other people seeing me shirtless thanks to this group. Im much more comfortable taking my shirt off when around other men however.

Tomorrow I will go back to taking my shirt off in the car on the way home

   I enjoy being shirt free in the summer & early fall. Whether it be at home or a friends house.
