OKAY, I have noticed just this summer that the Wal-Mart dress code is out of control. I was under the impression that when you went in any kind of business there was a standard - NO Shoes, No Shirt, No Service. I have counted the last 5 times I have been to old Wal-Mart in Glasgow, I have counted everytime I have been in there a SHIRTLESS MAN and I don't mean some 15 year old kid or younger, I am talking men from there 30s to there 60s. I know it is hot outside, but how hard is it to put a shirt on to get your Wal-Mart stuff.

Now onto the real question. This is the first summer I have noticed the parade of Shirtless adult men in Wal-Mart. Did the dress code change where it is legal to enter Wal-Mart shirtless??? I know there is a gas station/market in town, I won't say which one since I am friends with the staff, but anyway, the minute a man hits the door with no shirt they will clearly explain that they will not wait on them with a shirtless body in the store. I was just wondering if anyone else had noticed that Wal-Mart seems to be out of control lately with the shirtless men???

Michael honey if you are waiting for the whore Walmart to set the community dress code standards you are in for a huge disappointment. They couldn't care less as long as shirtless guy spends money there. It's disgusting but it is what it is. I saw a fat, disgusting hog in the grocery section there a few nights ago that the sight of him made me so sick I simply walked out and went home. His nasty, fat gut was hanging out from under his shirt and just about touched his knees. It looked like somebody had took a meat tenderizer gadget and beat his gut to death. To make it even worse he started picking his nose, pulled his finger out and was examining the results left on his finger.

People have no pride anymore. Walmart will only pay attention if they are losing money from that person. It's not only in Glasgow but it seems Glasgow Walmart is a magnet for the vile and disgusting.

There is no excuse for going shirtless in Wal-Mart. If your going to be in there to get your items, for gods sakes put a shirt on. Wal-Mart is a major retailer and I can't believe they allow shirtless adult men in the store. I can see maybe if you need to run in Minit Mart for 30 seconds to buy smokes and if you are shirtless, but if your gonna be in Wal-Mart for 30 minutes grocery shopping, there is no excuse.

Not saying I don't believe you Michael, but I've never seen any men shirtless in Wal-Mart. And I'm in there a lot. But yes, it would be disgusting.

Wal-Mart needs a sign:

No shirt.
No shoes.
No problem.

To be fair about it I did hear the door greeter at Walmart tell a young guy the other day that he had to have a shirt on to shop there. He had on jean shorts, no shirt and a rag hanging out of his back pocket and he was very sweaty so I assumed he had an outside job and it was very, very hot outside. He said he wasn't shopping he was just looking for his girlfriend who was in there shopping and he walked on in the store.

I just wonder what people on here think if the tables were turned a little bit. What if a couple of really pretty young women came in from the lake to get some cookout supplies at Walmart and they were wearing their bikini's ? Would that upset anyone ? lol

I have been in Wal-Marts down south and have seen chicks in swimsuits and no one ever complains. I have yet to see it in Glasgow. However I doubt the Glasgow Wal-Mart wouldn't mind at all.

The shirtless hillbillies just need to cool off in the AC or at least where one of those sweat absorbed tanktops. If you can't put a shirt on in Wal-Mart your just retarded. They need to really tighten the rules at Wal-Mart, the shirtless guys should be kicked out if they can't follow the rules. I highly doubt there gonna go shirtless in a restaurant, Wal-Mart should be the same. Besides with the girls clothing today with the tops so skimpy, and the shorts so short with the butt hanging out, they might as well wear bikinis.

So a femanine type guy wearing a fish net crop top and cheek chiller shorts with part of his wrinkled brains hanging out that would be okay because he was clothed ? Double standard. to say that it's okay for women because they go around half naked anyway but totally different rules for guys is just wrong.

Retail establishments do have normally have rules concerning wearing shoes, shirts, etc...but as has been pointed out already many people will simply not acknowledge the requirements and continue on in there way through out the store. I will say that when I was a kid back in the 70's that the requirements concerning no shoes no service was not nearly as common as it is today. I can remember many times strolling into the local 7-11 with only shorts on...perhaps I had been swimming at Wekiwa Springs (Located at the headwaters of the Wekiva River) and my dad stopped long enough for us to get a Pepsi and a snack..but noone made any big deal out of someone not wearing a shirt. Now granted, if you were going into a restaurant it was simply something that didn't even have to be said...you were a shirt and shoes... However, with Wal-Mart being a store that draws from various segments of society it doesn't surprise me in the least that someone would be flip-flopping through with no regard that they were shirtless. Actually, I wouldn't be offended. I guess one's take on any given social setting is dependent on expectations. But I don't see the need to harp on that when there are so many other things in society that I could be making complaints about. I will say that I don't see me making my way into a Wal-mart, K-Mart or any other type of Mart without a shirt on....as far as I'm concerned I believe that anyone who is picking their nose in public and examining their find has some serious social skills problems...borderline idiot...but again, that goes back to nature -vs- nurture...was that person simply raised to be that way? More than likely...does that give a person a pass? Well I highly doubt that someone is going to do anything other than turn their head so they don't have to continue to look at the monkey "out of the cage"...or perhaps they will simply get on Topix and post their disdain for such behavior.

Whats wrong with a man going shirtless in walmart? I really don't want to see all those ugly toes either but i have no right to tell someone else to wear tennis shoes. if they want to wear flip-flops, that is their right. It is NOT a sin to go shirtless, it is NOT anti-family, it is NOT vulgar, it is NOT harmful in any ascept. So, Get over it!

Grow up, wtf. Yeah, no one wants to see some old, fat, half-naked dude runnin around wal-mart, I get that. Look the other way if it bothers you, you don't own the place. Can't live with that, go somewhere else. Easy fix. Learn how to prioritize the things that are important to you, if you have NO other problems, to the extent that you feel the need to get on here and make a fuss about men with no shirts on, then I suggest you go somewhere besides wal-mart every now and then. Live a little, get some REAL problems. This is hilarious. Social standards are ruining peoples morals, they don't exist anymore. You think people always had to wear shirts? Did Cavemen and Indians and shit, have little "No shirt - No Service" Signs posted when they traded? Are you honestly offended by a shirtless man? Are you really THAT sheltered? Quit bitching about completely pointless crap and get a life, there are MUCH more important things to worry about right now than some guy without a shirt, at wal-mart. I don't like seeing fat people in tight clothes, but thats a bit of a conundrum isn't it? I don't like seeing ugly people, period. Maybe I should start a thread complaining about all the ugly people at wal-mart, seems like the cool thing to do these days. Good lord..

I've been in stores and seen people with dogs in the store. I don't like it, if you don't have a medical problem leave fido at home. My husband has alergies and can't stand it, he said he was going to get a pet goat and take it in with him sometime. I think the sign schould read no shirt no shoes no pets, unless you have a reason not just because you think your pet is so cute.

I think the "no shirt, no shoes" policy can only be made manditory in an establishment where food is served, i.e. a resturant, etc. It is a health code policy. Any where else it can be requested but not forced.

Food has been served at Wal-Mart since it was established. The old WalMart snack bar in the 70s and 80s and early 90s, then McDonalds took over. I say we need more women wearing bikinis in Wal-Mart like on that website that Mark listed above.

First of all Morally , Biblically and according to most state laws it is ILLEGAL to go shirtless (men and women). Stores have the right and responsibility to refuse service to those dressed inappropriately. Unfortunately walmart sells most of the pjs and fuzzy slippers to the shoppers who look so stupid in the out in public :(
