This winter is the first time I actuallly grew out my beard and I was almost startled by the power of it. Instantly people started calling me "Sir", started acknowledging me more in the workplace, seemingly shaking my hand differently, I received more flirtation, and all joking aside people seemed to pay more attention to what I was saying. And yes, it's made me look "manlier" in the gym (but of course I'm the same person just bearded).

 

A little beard goes a long way.

 

One draw back is feeling the moustache pressing back against my face when I kiss. The second drawback is it covers a lot of my handsome mug.

Great points. I really didn't even think anout what other people think of it. But you're right it hads an air of authority and maturity, wether you actually posses it or not

+1 to OMAC.

 

Now my reasons:

 

Pro:

Because I can.

I like the way it looks and feels.

 

Con:

Nothing.

You can't leave life decisions like this up to a penny.
A moustache surely is the way of the chap. A beard may mean you are taken for an east european type.
A chaps style, taste, and manner would never allow him to be taken for an east european type.
I wasn't allowed to grow any facial hair in high school (private school), so when I did start, it still looked "teen", patchy, thin, etc. One summer, I just let it grow out, then shaved it. Now, at 22, I can grow a manly looking full goatee, that doesn't look like crap. Haven't tried growing a full beard yet, most guys my age still can't.
Just shaved off the full beard.  I kinda liked it, but after a month it was still not all that full.  Many women loved it, but the most important woman wasn't all that keen on it.  I did keep a goatee(not a vandyke with the stache, a traditional chin only), and have been enjoying it tremendously.  Wife likes this one more.
First..nice hat. I spent nearly 17 years as a professional fire fighter, no beards, couldn't even have a goat and they were pretty restricting on the stache too. I love the freedom of letting my beard grow and my hair also.
I've had a full beard going on three years now. As a member and competitor for Beard Team USA, i can there are no cons.;)
I'll be 39 next month. I just feel I've reached an age when the beard is fitting.
