Default The Beards

Okay, I give..... what's with the bushy beards all of a sudden? Is this a "I'm not shaving till I win" thing or what?

I thought that the hipster movement -and its uniform- was well documented...

It's an 'I'm more of a man than you because my beard is bigger' thing.

I noticed the "beard thing" at work.

Reminds me when the "tattoo thing" started in 1999

I like occasionally growing a beard, they are great for covering up the flabby jowls

Drivers, especially professionals might keep their beards until they turn grey...
I cut mine off when someone thought I was much older than I was.

Even if grey, a well groomed beard would look a little better, I know Kim thinks so.

It's a trending thing that is carrying over from last year, I grew one for a small stint last year, Went down the shore for the week vacation, Got tired of it and shaved it. Well, I walked around with a white chin strap because the rest of my face was tan. Now that's a trend that should be started. LOL.

I like beards and goatees if they're kept short. Langdons has gotten so bushy he looks like a big teddy bear!
