Wink WOMEN: What do YOU find immodest about mens clothing?

Ok, there is another thread going on now where men are listing the things they find immodest about women's fashions. So, what do you find immodest about men's fashion? What would you like men to change about how they dress, (or not change)?

Let me see. Last night I was watching Jack Nicholson and Dianne Keaton in Something's Gotta Give and I would have to say that the hospital gowns being open down the back can be pretty revealing.

The only thing that really comes to mind is too tight shirts over a big belly. That and those saggy pants that fortunately I think are becoming a thing of the past.

swimming briefs.
men should wear knee length shorts when swimming or at the beach

tight fitting t shirts

low slung trousers (and no shirt)

and i am sure many people would object but quite often i find tucked in tops (unless part of a suit) to be immodest too...

I dislike the baggy pants that hang down so low that the underwear shows. I also dislike Speedo swimsuits worn on anybody who is not a competitive swimmer in high school, college or the Olympics. They should not be worn by anybody who does not have a "swimmer's build".

I saw a man about 300 pounds and over 60 in one once.

Tattoos, piercings, speedos always. T's with obscene sayings or for that matter any saying unless at home, at a picnic or the beach.
Tight jeans, torn jeans and muscle shirts. Shorts (not walking shorts) when not at home, the park or beach.

I find muscle shirts immodest and unnappealing, or for that matter guys who don't wear shirts. Not a good look. Other than that, really tight shirts or tight pants or shorts. But, I guess I don't know if I find these technically immodest--I'm more apt to think lustful thoughts about a man who is well dressed; I tend to think the abovementioned looks are trashy.

Personally, I hate the wife-beater shirts and plummer butts, and the low-slung pants.

Thanks for the insight ladies.Being a man,I am happy to say I agree with just about every post.

Although I do preffer to be topless when I am mowing the lawn,or doing yard work when its hot out.This keeps me cool,saves t-shirts from being trashed by sweat and I also catch a few extra rays in the process.

But yes,wife beater shirts,tight clothing,speedos,hip, huggers,excessive jewerly and space cowboy sun glasses on older guys are all lame in my book.

The last one,that I think is just hilarous,is when a man buys a Harley when he is older and also updates his wardrobe with tons of biker clothing.

This is hard for me because I can't say I've ever actually visually lusted after a guy. But I would tend to agree with what everyone already said, because it makes sense. I also don't think men should go topless or wear shorts that are too wide cut, allowing others to see up their legs when seated. Swimsuits are out. There is no such thing as a modest swimsuit for men or women in this day and age.

I think this post confirms that women are not visually stimulated by men. The issue of immodesty is about its potential to lead others into lust. The only comments that came in were about what turns them off i.e. Butt Cleavage.
Comparaing immodesty between men and women is like comparing apples and oranges.
No woman was attracted to butt cleavage!

I agree. I don't think it is a visual thing at all. We women tend to like guys for who they are, not what they look like.
