Answer:
الحمد لله والصلاة والسلام على سيدنا محمد وعلى آله وصحبه أجمعين
The ‘awrah of a man is from the navel to the knees. The rest of the body is not part of the ‘awrah. However, there is a difference of opinion whether the navel is part of ‘awrah or not. This area must be covered before men and women. [1] [2]
And Allah ta’ala knows best.

[2] ينظر الرجل من الرجل إلى جميع بدنه إلا ما بين سرته إلى ركبته لقوله عليه السلام عورة الرجل ما بين سرته إلى ركبته.
