"guys, especially bodybuilders, have been shaving their pits since the 80's and maybe longer. It's a great look especially if your Lats look good. I don't have much hair on my chest, so its not a big deal. I heard guys recently say…"
"Generally speaking younger guys do tend to be more modest in locker room situations. It's just been within the past few years that I've gotten to the point that I don't go out of my way to cover up when changing or showering at the…"

"Good observation on the shaving ones. It seems that the young guns now prefer to have their pits shaved. Maybe it's a millennial thing. One young guy in the gym commented when he saw me doing a shoulder press and saw my pit hair. He said, I…"
"In my college years I had a little patch of chest hair. As my 20s progressed it spread across my pecs. It's never gotten real thick or particularly long. I'm going to be 30 next year and will be happy if it stays basically as is.
