I would love to grow a beard, but am unable to due to my job. I grow a stache instead but even it isn't like what I really want (center is a bit thin, and looks like I shave the center off). I would like to grow a full beard but the sides of my mouth don't connect to the rest of it growing on the jaw line. So when I did grow one I just grew a long goatee and some huge sideburns. I miss having that facial hair.
Foggy, sir you have the beard I dream of having!
I've had a goat (Van Dyke) since I was 16, but I've been letting it grow out to a full beard since this August. I figured this would be the time, before it all goes completely white, as a redhead it's taking on more of a paprika look now, LOL.
I did shave it all off once about 15 years ago, but I didn't recognize myself in the mirror. I will NEVER do that again.
I smell like whatever I smoked regardless. But, I like an aromatic for the drive in to work. It suits me better than some tooty fruity cologne.
I've only trimmed the sides of my beard once in two years. Otherwise no cutting at all. My gal says my beard is bigger than her head lol. I started noticing the stache note as well and my gal surely does. Not a bad thing but she doesn't care much for Latakia.
@cigarmaster geeze you need to see the above post with the cool Nordic looking guy smoking a pipe in a wool sweater. He made me feel guilty about shaving my beard off for wearing a suit. LOL Some chicks dig it! My wife likes it.
My wife loves a beard on me, hates a moustache. I'm mo-vembering it up right now so the wifey isn't pleased. Work prohibits me from growing a beard so I have to wait until xmas leave and my parental leave next year. I miss my beard....
