That is very interesting!

I prefer to think of it as the lower end of average height. I train a decent bit (but not like years ago) and weigh 175. Actually, IMO height or size has little to do with how someone looks with a beard. Some people look good with beards and some just don't. I've seen a number of tall/bigger guys that look odd with beards and/or moustaches. It's more about facial structure. In a similar vein, some guys look better with a shaved head than others.Bloke wrote: ↑Wed Aug 07, 2019 6:44 pmI’ve never grown a beard in my 58yrs even though I hate shaving.
That said the reason I don’t grow a beard is because I’m a little bloke, 5’-9” and 155lb and I reckon little blokes with beards look like garden gnomes plus I’m way to pretty for a beard. Ah, hahaha!
Concerning height but on an unrelated note, my main martial arts teacher is also 5'-9", but until I found that out, I had assumed he was slightly taller and bigger. I came to the realization that the way he carried himself made him seem larger.
I think you’re right in all regards Jim. I’ve just never had the inclination towards a beard and I can’t help thinking maintaining a well groomed beard would take more time and effort than just running a razor over my dial in the shower.
On height/size, some of the most dangerous men I’ve met and know are little lean hard working blokes.
I've noticed that, too. I've also seen a number of those types trying to dress like lumberjacks.
Having a beard can also be fun. IMO, it's good to change things up sometimes. I always inevitably end up shaving it off, until I feel like changing up again.. I had a full mustache from age 13 or so, and still remember the first time shaving at 14 or 15, and thinking it looked odd, because I'd gotten so used to it being there.OldHoosier62 wrote: I retired from the Marine Corps in 1995 and quit shaving the same day. I've only been clean shaven twice since then and they were both for major surgeries. I do clean up and shape the bottom about once a month and trim the 'stache once a week. It has been "belly button" long a few times but I prefer it around chest length.
And, like Doc Dan, I laugh at today's scraggly, patchy beards that many try to pass off as a substitute for manliness. I have a beard because I like it...(and I'm kind of homely)...not because it makes me manly.
Not for me... I only have a few gray whiskers when I grow my beard out and my head is full of gray hair’s
The city kids with their ultra tight pants, flannel's and beards crack me up as well...Probably wouldn't even know how to start a chainsaw or even use a splitting maul!
