A man who wears only a shirt at a nude beach.
The beach wandering shirt-cocker enjoyed tanning his buns while keeping the sun off his back.

a guy at the Burning Man Festival who walks around with a shirt on and no pants, with genitalia exposed.
Dude, either put some pants on, or take your shirt off, you god-damned shirt cocker!

1) a male whose commitment to nudity stops above the waist. 2) a common phenomenon among cartoon characters wherein the character is deprived of pants; see Donald Duck, Ziggy, Winnie the Pooh, etc.
I got invited to go to Burning Man this year, but was scared off by the sheer number of shirtcockers in attendance.

A committed nudie who hangs out at hotsprings, burning man, nude beaches, clothing optional clubs etc. who sometimes wears just a t-shirt while his junk is flopping around for all the world to appreciate.
After getting a sunburn on my back, I just went as a shirtcocker the rest of the day.
