winter beards

Owing to my unemployed and looking status I opted out so far this year. Hopefully I'll have a chance to get more grizzly before spring. My bandmates are putting me to shame. Anyone else sporting the seasonal scruff?

Ugh, I tried a goatee last winter. Hated it, looked like crap, like pubic hair all over my face.

bf tried to grow a beard. He started on Friday and shaved it off this morning before work. That's as far as he got.

I've worn at least a goatee since 1990(minus about 2 weeks).

I shaved for a new job in '97, but the boss went on vacation and I grew it back while he was away.

I have tried and failed many times. I can grow a goatee, though-and usually do.

I sometimes get a little friskery by the weekend and have gone a few weeks without shaving this winter... but seem to prefer a cleaner look.

I've had the goatee for about four months now. I may shave it off when it starts getting cooler.

You're all looking good, guys . Mr. East Hill has tried a beard in the past, but it grows in too patchy for his taste, and he always gets rid of it after a couple of days.

Let it grow in the Fall shave in the Spring. Wife likes it, I hate to shave, and keeps the face a little warmer on cold rides:

I keep it trimmed close, but the red still contrast with what little brown hair I have left...
