Beards

Postby Puff Daddy on Fri Feb 08, 2019 4:06 pm

What is this cult that just won't go away and seemingly is becoming even more popular; to the extent that celebs are now following suit and even middle aged BBC newsreaders and weather forecasters that beards plainly do not suit are sporting the foliage round their chops too? I have nothing against beards and even admit they do look remarkably cool on some men, but middle aged grey beaeds, no, get the shaving brush, soap and razor out. I recall on a holiday in Spain some years ago, browsing a restaurant menu, the below: To mop up the gravy, may we recommend beard. Now there's an idea

I've had a beard since I was 21 - my electric razor was stolen when we held a party at the flat I was sharing with 4 other lads when I worked in a Bank - I thought ' Sod it , I ain't buying another one ! ' and it's been there ever since - that was nearly 42 years ago now .

Most of the blokes I know who scoff at beards are either unable to grow one, or look like a sex offender when they do.

:lol: No, I think they look great on some guys, especially young geezers with neatly trimmed black beards. But I don't think they suit some older guys with two toned dark and grey beards, or others with that long, scruffy, unkempt look. About the only exception to that rule is, George Cluney. His looks good on him

If I see a load of hair around some lips I know exactly what I am looking at. :lol: .........especially a goatee.

Also if you think you are better looking by hiding your face it pobably means that you are aesthetically challenged.

I understand those that grow beards due to a general can’t be bothered attitude, but not for fashion. There is a huge gulf between style and fashion. It’s always been what set us apart from the rest.

It's quite the opposite though, that is why I never bothered for more than a couple of months, took too much looking after. Much simpler to shave every now and then than trim and condition a beard.

Unless you want to look like something thats been dragged backwards through a bush.

There are those that have beards that look like a scabie ridden dog
a proper groomed beard looks good though
not for me , 4 days growth irritates me enough that I would shave with a blunt rusty razor just to get that crap off my face

can't be arsed to shave every day and i don't like a stubble ---> beard.
some trimming here and there once a week, or two even, and it's ok.
plus, i'll look even younger when i will finally shave.

Shave my head and face grade 1, once a week, I'd like to grow a big beard, but it seems like too much effort.
Plus I'd never be able to get the smell of warps mum off of it.
