Urbandictionary with Gary

shirt cocking – Men who go about their day with a shirt on, but no pants or underwear.

“Cocking” can be used with other terms. Example: Cowl Cocking, when a man wears only a super heros cowl, much like Batmans cowl, but no pants or underwear.

Look at that dude, he’s totally shirt cocking.
