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.

Advice on buying a leather bag

I'm looking to buy a used leather briefcase and/or messenger bag for college. Probably won't buy until later in the summer, but I'm trying to get some research in. Does anyone have any vintage or modern brands to recommend? Right now I'm looking at something along these lines. Hoping to keep it under $50.See More
