Mandesty: What is it & Style Tips

Simply put Mandesty is modesty for men.

But WHAT is modesty? Well, the dictionary defines it as,

the quality or state of being unassuming or moderate in the estimation of one’s abilities.
“with typical modesty he insisted on sharing the credit with others”
synonyms: self-effacement, humility, unpretentiousness;

the quality of being relatively moderate, limited, or small in amount, rate, or level.
“the modesty of his political aspirations”

synonyms: limited scope, moderation
“the modesty of his aspirations”
behavior, manner, or appearance intended to avoid impropriety or indecency.

plural noun: modesties
“modesty forbade her to undress in front of so many people”

synonyms: unpretentiousness, simplicity, plainness
“the modesty of his home”

We’ve all seen modest dress guides for women. We’ve all shared a meme rightfully shaming a starlet for immodest dress. So, when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed, making sure my friends were part of the 3% who shared that meme about Jesus, I came across many posts showing half-naked men. It occurred to me that we aren’t teaching our boys modesty. So, I took up the challenge. I also share some quick ways to ensure you’re modest in dress, young men!

Men, you don’t want to cause lustful thoughts in women! In order to avoid that refrain from the following:

Tight or see-through tops are a big no-no. Your sacred nipples are for your wife’s eyes only.
Avoid showing your shoulders and back. It is well-known that women cannot control themselves at the sight of bare shoulders. It is on you to not cause impure thoughts in others.
Long or three-quarter sleeves are ideal.
Shorts should not be above the knee. The short shown below are an appropriate example of modest dress:


Bonus: All those extra pockets will come in handy for your pocket bibles!

Make sure the pants are loose enough as to not accentuate your naughty lumps.

What you wear is not only an expression of yourself but it also sends a message to others. Think: How do you want others to see you? Do want the future mother of your children to think of you as easy?
How would feel if your son dressed immodestly?
Fathers, it is up to you!

Finally, aside from these style tips, I advise you to keep your body hair to a minimum. That is, you should only have hair on your head and brows. Excess body hair is unsightly and unhygienic. Avoid tattoos and piercings. Your body is a precious temple!

And the best style tip of all: SMILE! You never know when you might run into The One. You don’t want her thinking you have a full range of human emotions, now do you?!

Oh and as for the offending “friend” sharing those immodest pictures, I sent them a strongly worded PM and then I reported them to Facebook. Nothing happened and then I realized why! Mark himself has fallen for the depravity of the world! I pray he may learn of modesty.

Gray isn’t Modest


At Mandesty, not only do we care about Modesty but we also want young men to look their best! How else are they to attract the right kind of women?
This fellow while somewhat covered is still making several mistakes.
First, he should cover all that gray hair. Dont fall for the lie that gray makes a man look distinguished.
Second, as a Mandesty reader points out,

he hasn’t shaved 100% of his body hair. I am uncomfortable with this reminder that humans are mammals. He should spend hours each week on hiding this fact.

Third, we’ve talked about tattoos. You wouldn’t put bumper stickers on a Bentley.
Lastly while he is wearing a shirt he is pushing his pecs together. He’s going to attract the wrong type of attention.

Modesty: Then and Now


See this? What message are you sending to kids? Think of your grandchildren over there in 2066 and how they’ll feel knowing that granddad was a slut.

I can look at pictures of my grandpa and know he was a self respecting man who kept his privates private. The man was such a paragon of virtue he showered with his clothes on so he wouldn’t offend Jesus with his junk.

Also, shave! You don’t see black and white grandad looking like a bear grylls reject.

Livin’ La Vida Modestly


Ricky Martin, as I told Adam Levine in a previous post, you should let your talent speak for itself.
Ok, so you’re at home and not on stage.That isn’t an excuse for immodesty.
At Mandesty, we’ve addressed tattoos before. They’re unsightly.
I have a question for you Ricky, what type of example are you setting for your boy children?

Also, HOW THE HELL DID YOU TAKE A SELFIE WITH YOUR FEET? Those talented feet should be put to good use, not this.

Modesty and Cats


Men, not only do we have a responsibility to our children. We also have it to our pets. You may think posing topless next to your pet is harmless fun, maybe even cute. But it isn’t. Cats are stereotypically known as furballs of hate and murder. This is why. Zack, no one wants to see your nipples. Least of all fluffy. That cat has seen some things and I pray she may recover.


Strategic placement of that poor cat doesn’t take away from the fact that you’re topless.
I ask why must our young men blemish their skin with such ugly ink? It seems you are also wearing boxers. Pants are always a must.

Men, if you feel compelled to pose with your cat, I suggest following the young man above’s example. He’s wearing a simple white shirt AND he expertly matched his outfit to his pet. Smart and modest!
