Yes... but also, in both the novel and the movie it is mentioned that Bob has breasts, like a woman almost, so therefore he would be excused from the shirt rule, no? It's almost a common courtesy thing.

It is also a possibility that the director didn't want to have 'Bob' topless in the movie because of what is under his top. While ok to read about and see under a shirt, you never really know how an audience will react to exaterated male breasts..not to mention keeping a decent rating on the film.

Good point, but it's not a "slip up" so much as a necessity for the movie production. Meatloaf Aday who played Bob (Robert Pulson) had recently lost a lot of weight, and as the character was supposed to be huge they had to use a fat suit to make him appear...huge.
The t-shirt was to cover the fat suit.
However, the story (book/script) would have bob shirtless.
