Whom here can grow a beard ?????

Post'em up.

Here is my last one, recently cropped up short and now letting it go again...... because I can.

For those that can't grow a beard, sorry. I cant fathom it but understand male hormone treatments might help.

I can’t compete. Kind of glad about it, I can’t imagine having that to deal with.

Can only get a goatee working here. Thankful actually, I'd hate to deal with more hair than I already have.

Not anymore. Years back, when first meeting a client for the first time in person I used to enjoy presenting the contrast of long hair, a long beard (or goatee), and a tastefully tailored Italian suit.

That was back when large financial institutions maintained some degree of dress code - and to look like the guy in this picture, but better dressed, was never a problem for any of my clients, or upper management.

But my appearance was shocking - SHOCKING (in a pearl-clutching way) to some of my fussier colleagues who managed far fewer relationships.

The head of HR (a car-and-watch guy) called me to share he received a(n) ‘anonymous’ request to him to enforce the section of the dress code requiring employees to maintain a “clean and well-groomed appearance”. We had a good chuckle and then he told me about the Motto-Guzzi he was thinking about buying after selling his Buell.

Before, the colors were blond, brown… and weirdly some damn red. And then, grey.

Now my face produces some brown but mostly ‘silver’ beard.

That shit will not stand, so now I hardly accommodate more than a tightly groomed goatee.

But that maintenance- so, after a week or two - I’m ready for the clean damn shaven face that my tolerant wife prefers.

Usually well groomed, mustache only. Let it go during COVID lockdown. Gone now.

Dont like beards, only grew one once. People with beards just strike me as too lazy to shave but some do look better like Ted Cruz.

I heard that Ted Cruz’s beard looks like someone rolled a bowling ball through a puddle of glue straight into a pile of pubic hair.

No doubt an unfair analysis but my problem is that I can’t disremember the tweet that drew the comparison. It’s like a damn earworm that resists one’s efforts to banish it.

Ha, here's a pic taken by Jaw at a WL GTG years ago.

I've been letting my hair grow as well, because I can/could and as evident by allowing a niece braid it at a Seahawks game about four-five years ago. Kind funny since I wore a flattop the last half of my Navy career........

(oh, and these are our seats undercover & ten rows up from the field for the past 21 years :mrgreen: ).

I'm not a fan of beards, and I can only grow a goatee, which I did in the '90s. I've had a bad attitude about hippies since the '80s. (You guys look marvelous, though, I swear.) My girlfriend hates the 1981 pedo look I've covid-cultivated... But I think it's funny and besides, my good glasses have a scratch right in my line of sight, so I only wear them if we're going somewhere decent.
