Mankinis! A guy's guide to skimpy.

1 2 3 15 Next
This one is for the Gents! You guys kept asking me for one, so here it is! ^_^
I researched everything that showed a bit of skin on the males and put it all together in one spot for easy reference for you.
While most of these do have full sets, I am only listing those items that have a skimpy appearance on the males and discussing a little of what got them on the list. Legs will be found separately at the bottom of each armor type post.

May you ever be fashionable, and as covered (or un-covered) as you desire. ;)
As always, if I am missing a design, color or alternate way of acquiring something, please let me know and I will happily add it! <3
The guide for the Ladies can be found here:

Plate Chest Options

Starting off with the one design in plate that is skimpier on males than females, a bit of a harness-y look with chain accents; In grey Stormforged Breastplate, Gateshattering Hauberk, Rough Stone Carapace, and Troggzor's Crystalline Plate. In dark grey Druidic Guardian Plate, Chestplate of Exceptional Expectations and Oddly Revealing Chestguard. In green Jasperlode Breastplate, Direforge Breastplate, Fargodeep Breastplate, Stonewrought Breastplate, Crystalvein Breastplate, Dreadmaul Breastplate, and Rethban Breastplate. And in blue Damplight Chestplate, Chestplate of Fragrant Desire, Chestguard of Cognitive Dissonance, and Chestguard of Alarming Dreams.

Then we have some nice side and back exposure with this skin; In grey Slatesteel Breastplate or Heroic Armor, in gold Flamebane Breastplate, in gold/grey Heavy Earthforged Breastplate, in green Fel Iron Breastplate, in black Thick Obsidian Breastplateand in brown/red Breastplate of the Warbringer.

These sets allow you to display those rock-hard abs perfectly. In black Tarnished Plate Chestpiece, in silver Grimscale Armor and in gold Shattered Hand Breastplate.

Over here we have a bit of belly-button showing, and a generous amount of lower back exposure. In gold Conqueror's Breastplate, in blue Hydralick Armor and Ornate Mithril Breastplate, and in red Bloodscale Breastplate and Gilded Crimson Chestplate.

These jagged tops leave the midriff mostly bare, save for a spike in the front and back. In black Drakescale Breastplate, in blue Warleader's Breastplate and Adamantite Breastplate, in brown Brutish Breastplate and in black/gold Exalted Harness.

Some bareness at the waist and sides here, save for a few straps. In gold Bloodfist Breastplate, in red Demon Forged Breastplate, Boulderfist Armor and Darkcrest Breastplate and in silver/gold Truesilver Breastplate.

A bit more coverage than the previous tops, these still offer a bit of belly and side exposure. In blue/red Lost Chestplate of the Reverent, Soul Saver's Chest Plate and Runic Breastplate, in blue/gold Chestguard of Illumination and Templar Chestplate, in purple Revenant Chestplate, Murkblood Avenger's Chestplate and Chestplate of A'dal, in green Ironvine Breastplate and Emerald Breastplate and in red Thorium Armor.

These tops leave a generous amount of back and sides bare, dipping in the front to frame the belly button perfectly. In red/gold Hyperion Armor, in a rosy brown/orange Commander's Armor, in white/purple/red Scavenged Breastplate and Imbued Plate Armor and in a silver/gold/black Enchanted Thorium Breastplate.

These styles are fairly borderline skimpy, but the expanse of lower back showing has me include them. In black/red The Exarch's Protector, in green/gold Silithid Carapace Chestguard, in black/grey Spiderfang Carapace and in brown/blue Breastplate of Retribution.

This skin leaves most of the upper back bare, with some wonderful strap accents. In red Warmaul Breastplate and Warlord's Iron-Breastplate.

A nice midriff-baring style here; In grey Chromite Chestplate, a soft orange Embossed Plate Armor, silver Field Plate Armor and in blue Jouster's Chestplate.

Ending off the tops with a few single options; A plate harness Durotan's Battle Harness. A belly button-baring gold top Khan'aish Breastplate. And a wonderfully skimpy option that leaves those pecs and upper back exposed Talonguard Armor.

Plate Leg Options

There Really, just one. =/ WTB a few more options please, Blizz!
Skyfire Greaves is the only leg that varies from the standard waist-high and ankle or knee lengths. It is very, very low cut and a nice, slim belt such as Belt of the Fallen Emperor or Royal Qiraji Belt will not cover that up.
Mail Chest Options

Starting off with a mid-riff barer with a nice mesh chain accent. In green Der'izu Chestpiece, in black/grey Double Link Tunic, in brown Fortified Chain, and in an orangey red Martyr's Chain, Raider's Chestpiece and Marshcreeper Fen-Vest.

Next up is a fantastically bare jagged style, with a single point dipping down in the back and front. In black/gold Golden Dragonstrike Breastplate, in green Fel Iron Chain Tunic in black/grey Black Dragonscale Breastplate and in brown Bloodsoul Breastplate.

Some nice side and lower back exposure with this model; In black/grey Dark Iron Mail, in white/red Wrathfin Armor, in gold/green Captain's Breastplate and in white/gold Mail Combat Armor.

A bit of waist and lower back baring here, with a few nice peek-a-boo cutouts as well. In gold Triumphant Chestpiece, in a fiery red/orange Magnificent Breastplate and in ivory Bonelink Armor.

This style bares a bit of waist in the front, then rises to bare the lower back. In silver/gold Ornate Breastplate, in dark gold Masterwork Breastplate and in orange Engraved Breastplate.

Here we have a cute half-shirt to highlight those sexy abs. In purple/pink Netherstalker Armor and Skettis Chestpiece, in green Green Dragonscale Breastplate, in gold Dragonscale Breastplate and Phantom Armor and in white/purple Defender Tunic.

This style has a nice bare upper back, accented with a few straps. In red Royal Decorated Armor and Hero's Breastplate, in an amberish color Bonechewer Berserker's Vest and Radiant Breastplate and in a soft gold Lord's Breastplate.

This one is a bit of a 'tank top' look, with the upper back and shoulders exposed. In purple/black Spiked Chain Breastplate, in gold/black Grunt's Chestpiece, in purple/blue Outrunner's Chestguard in red/green War Paint Chestpiece and in sliver/black/red Bloodspattered Surcoat.

Oddly enough, these have two different styles on females, but pretty much the same waist and side-baring skin on the gents. In silver Warp-Shielded Hauberk, Slarkskin and Ironspine Chain Vest, in green Fenclaw Armor and Cadet Vest, in bronze Rough Bronze Cuirass, Ravager Chitin Tunic and Copper Chain Vest and in gold Lambent Scale Breastplate

This one will perfectly frame those sexy abs. In silver Knight's Breastplate, Shining Silver Breastplate and Ironforge Breastplate.

A feathery look that bares the belly button, sides and lower back. In black Wildthorn Mail and in brown Gryphon Mail Breastplate.

Not a whole lot of skimpy on this one, but it does leave that belly button exposed in a flesh band around the waist. In purple Felstone Chain Vest, in blue Nexus-Strider Breastplate, in green Soldier's Armor and in brown Veteran Armor.

More flesh bands and belly buttons here with these; In green Dreamscale Breastplate and Brackwater Vest, in a rusty red War Torn Tunic, and in silver/brown Battle Chain Tunic and Charger's Armor.

One of the skimpiest of mail options, this one pretty much covers the pecs and upper back, with a bit of dangling chain fringe for accent. In purple Steadfast Breastplate, in silver Sentry's Gloves and in a BoP Horde Blacksmith only gold Barbaric Iron Breastplate.

A bare lower back for this skin; In gold Sparkleshell Breastplate and in ivory Ancient Chestpiece.

Finishing up with a few single color options here; A bit of bare waist and lower back in brown Brigade Breastplate and Ironspine's Ribcage. Exposed sides and back with a sort of peek-a-boo panel look Bloodmail Hauberk and Ravager's Armor in a rusty red. A midriff top that covers only the pecs Chestguard of Rampaging Fury in red/grey. A chain harness Harness of the Deep Currents. A belly button and side barer in dark red Chief Brigadier Armor. And this gem which exposes the pecs and upper back in a pewter/brown Marauder's Tunic.

Leather Chest Options

Well, there is not a whole lot here for the gents. =/ I thought leather was a bit lacking in skimpy for the ladies, but men seem to have it even worse. You do get a slew of harnesses however, a few well-placed straps make for a fine outfit. ;)

Kicking it off, harness style! There is more skin than not when wearing these little gems. ;)
An embellished, tribal look, Warbear Harness and Barbaric Harness are similar to Ceremonial Leather Harness but lack the arm beads. This three-strap look is in black/purple Buckled Harness, brown Brawler's Harness and Grizzly Jerkin and red Battered Leather Harness.
