    Lets talk about our beards! But also:

    I find people who use straight razors to be pretentious. I find myself to be extremely ostentatious for using the word pretentious.

    Thoughts? :fear:

    lol.. You wish. I use a straight razor to shape the cheekline of my beard and shape the sideburn/temple area. I get cleaner lines that way. I don't tell anybody that I use it though because of people like you Vin!!

    To each his own. I hate shaving, and trimming, so once a month, like a toddler, my wife pins me down and cleans me up.

    It's scheduled for tonight actually. We'll see who wins. I do know this, she can't make me take a bath.

    On the books for a cleaning huh.. You're trusting. My wife hates my beard, she would just chop the whole thing off..

    :D I should have put "no offense." :cheers1:

    This made me LOLz.

    I recently shaved all my facials, due to a need to present myself at work in a more professional manner. :2thmup:

    I just chopped the 4 month beard a week ago today.. I'm upset about it too. Growing it back out. I felt like I needed to look more professional as well, and to please the wife. Now my face just looks hella fat lol. Need to start a beard thread. Dirty paracord loving hippies always have beards.

    I'm single and they don't particularly care about my beard at work as long as I keep it trimmed up. Gotta love the pool bidniz! I agree on the beard thread.

    Mine likes it. Without it I look ten and timid. With it I am a force to be reckoned with.

    I won last night by the way, and am still super shaggy.

    When I was single I went full crazy man beard so the ladies would know what to expect.

    Or at least they would have had I not scared my crazy man beard. '

    Congrats lol. I let the neck and cheek line go for a week, and just buzzed it all down to a weeks growth last night so I can have an even starting point... I swear to you I gained 15 lbs and dropped 7 years. Can't wait for it to come back.

    I know the feeling. Right before we had my daughter I shaved, she's six now. She thought it was her uncle in all the baby pics (my brother) as she only knows me with a full beard.

    I shaved it once to show her it was me, all she did was point and laugh....

    It's better than shaving it.

    Lol that was quick. Only problem is most bearded guys cringe at the thought of a razor.. razors & beards don't mix..
