Thomas Eakins American. In January , Thomas Eakins removed the loincloth from a male model while lecturing about the pelvis to an anatomy class that included female students at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. Angry protests by parents and students soon forced him to resign from the Academy at the request of the board. Following Eakins' departure, however, thirty-eight of his male students resigned from the Academy and formed the Art Students' League of Philadelphia, providing him with a new forum for his life classes and for the creation of many of the paintings and photographs of the s, including this nude study of Bill Duckett, an amateur athlete. The relaxed atmosphere of the Art Students' League, where Eakins and his students governed themselves, permitted greater freedom in the photography of models than had prevailed at the Pennsylvania Academy. This photograph is an excellent example of Eakins' unabashed exploration of frontal male nudity.

Because the hottest trend in menswear right now is not about clothing but the lack of it. The designer — who has a made a career out of creating highly expensive leather jackets — sent out several models minus underwear in tunics featuring peepholes, cut to reveal their genitals. Cue a storm of media coverage and the Instagram hashtag: Dick Owens. More recently, bi-annual style magazine Man About Town featured the model Michael Morgan nude on its limited edition cover, also shot by McLellan — the limited run of sold out in 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in the 10th anniversary issue of Fantastic Man, there was a full-nude shoot featuring men of various ages. Of course male nudity in fashion is nothing new: Bruce Weber has long photographed well-endowed, tanned men wearing nada and frolicking on beaches; Tom Ford launched the M7 fragrance with a full-frontal campaign during his YSL years. Why is all this nakedness happening now? Are men less bothered by seeing other men in the buff? Is it all PR and noise?
