I love beards.

It makes it so much easier to spot your tragic fashion victim.

Because tattoos are so passé and Merricks ride so well on the whole that previous indicators are becoming ambiguous

Perth domestic is a global hotspot for individualism certainly. I've heard whispers on the grapevine that Yves Saint Laurent may be shopping the look for their Northern Hemisphere summer range

Apparently bold flouros and patchy Rebels nominee goaties are going to feature heavily amongst the who's who of fashionistas before too long.

Just remember you heard it here first.

Talk about frustrating! I sported a beard for years simply 'cause I'm a lazy prick who can't be arsed shaving. Fashion be damned. I was forced to shave at least once a week because my aversion to shaving wasn't as strong as my aversion to looking like a tragic fashion victim, and now you tell me I'm gonna have to give up my hi-vis workwear and Rebels patch too?

Can't a naturally cool guy catch a break?

Thank you blowin, love you too. I do however not feel tragic, nor a victim. But then again I don't live in the hip and happening centre of fashion

It's getting harder for the fashion forward to separate themselves from the pack that's for sure.

My advice ?

Accentuate the natural coolness of Teva sandals and 3/4 length Jorts by shaving all hair from your body in an obvious display of your overt masculinity.

I honestly cannot type the word " Jorts " without laughing out loud. Not to mention how often I see the frigging things now that I'm awoken to their existence.

They make my eyes hurt.

Holy shit. I think I've just become Chas Smith.

Nope, testicals are still there, anus remains free of seminal fluid.....pheeeeeww.

Nothing wrong with a bit of scrub round the waterhole in my estimation, but Zyzz/Gabes are gettin' all the hot chicks? Sheesh, when's the un-ironic Sam Simmons head-look getting a look-in?

Beards rock Blowin. Best thing around for keeping the ice off your face on those winter dawn raids. They keep you warm, store food and disguise a masculine-deficient chin all at the same time.

I've had mine, on and off, for almost 20 years and my dad's has been around ever since he got back from Vietnam in '69. Fuck fashion - the whole hipster thing will come and go - but the beard will remain a classic until the end of time.

Vote 1 FOR beards.

Don't let the bastards grind you down

All that plus a good beard can keep a bald dude in a healthy state of denial for years.
