I think we need a thread for the manliest of men. Let’s talk about a subject very near and dear to me. Beards.
Not all of us have one. As we have recently learned in a nearby thread, many go without this gift everyday. Some can’t grow a beard, while others wish they could get rid of theirs permanently. Personally, I think of mine as my defining visual characteristic. Having dark brown hair and a fire red beard is slightly uncommon and something I wear with pride. If I were to try to link up with one of you at an event, I would say “Look for the 6’4” white guy with the awesome red beard and a Marvel Comics shirt." It’s a memorable feature and it stands out.
Facial hair comes in hundreds of different combinations of color, style, texture, and meaning. Some may wear their beard for religious reasons, others simply for aesthetics. Some are the opposite and keep a clean shave for various reasons as well. All of this is a part of who you are, so let’s discuss.
Share your stories, your choices, your reasons, your designs, your artistic facial creations, your methods of upkeep, your opinions, whatever you want. Women (Yes we have them here) feel free to share your opinions as well. Let us men know what you like to see on a man’s face and why.
