Behind The Beard

Beards are beautiful. So are the men behind them.
BEARD AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY #6:
THE BRAGGART: Back home for the holidays for the first time in five years. Has a hard time accepting the lack of innovative cuisine in his home town.  Reminds everyone he must leave early to catch his red-eye to London.

BEARD AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY #5

THE DANDY: Meticulous to the point of obsession, this beard planned his festive outfit weeks in advanced. The placement of every hair on his well groomed face and head was a conscious decision skillfully executed. Carefully avoids the crockpot of Swedish meatballs for fear of spilling on his statement piece: the velvet blazer. Is not not ashamed of tucking a paper napkin into his collar while eating.

BEARD AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY #3

THE “BLUTO”: This whiskered party animal delights in pouring shots down the throats of friends and strangers alike. Periodically yells “LET’S DRINK!” at the otherwise subdued party goers. Can’t understand why this doesn’t elicit the reaction it used to in college.

BEARD AT THE CHRISTMAS PARTY #1THE OUTDOORSMAN: Seemingly impervious to the frigid temps, this beardie spends the whole evening out on the back deck, in front of the chiminea. Conversation topic of choice: his methods for clicker training his dog. Casually avoids mentioning that he has a shih tzu. (Source: Levi’s Made and Crafted A/W 2013)
