My wife and kid have been gone for several days, and we have been enjoying a stretch of below-normal temps in my area.  I woke up at about 5:00 a couple mornings ago and went outside with no shirt on to enjoy the cold.  People don't believe me when I tell them I rarely get cold, but it's true.  It was 26 degrees outside when I stepped outside, and it felt wonderful!  It is a rare moment here when we have lows below freezing, especially for days at a time, so I took the opportunity to enjoy it shirtless.  If I could, I'd check out that whole polar bear club thing, just for kicks.

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.
Comment by Sir Edmund on August 9, 2015 at 8:36pm
Tomorrow I will go back to taking my shirt off in the car on the way home
