Same here, I love bread. Can't imagine how Djokovic survives being gluten-free.

Re: Have you got a beard?

Bumping this because I just had a beard-related Eureka moment.

On my second serious beard attempt now and I just realised one of the main reasons why beards look unkempt is that people think the moustache should be the same length as the hair on the chin and cheeks. I'm trying out a new strategy now where I keep it rather shorter, about 2/3 of the length of the rest of the beard. Looks much more balanced.

You're welcome.

Re: Have you got a beard?

I got a lazy beard. Aka I haven't shaven in a while.

I can grow an awesome beard and may ride this one out for a while and see where it goes.

If you have an issue with a report/infraction, a user, a moderator or just want to talk, PM me.

I support Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray, David Ferrer, Del Potro.

Why? Because I love tennis plain and simple

Re: Have you got a beard?

Full beard. Get little growth on my cheeks however.

Used to have a lazy man's beard until it would grew out, at which point I'd shave above the lip to get a Lincoln beard. Only recently did the hair up there get thick enough to not look like a fifteen year old's mustache, so now I keep it too.

Re: Have you got a beard?

Beard is very hipster these days.

I can't really grow one, the parts just don't connect . Moustache doesn't connect to the chin and neither connects to the sideburns. It doesn't really grow quickly either, aside from the sideburns.

Clean shaven + suit is the preferred style for work as well.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Re: Have you got a beard?

Used to have a massive one. But it was just messy and looked like overgrown bumfluff. Then I was advised by an expert that the ladies do not like this. Never grew a beard again, constantly clean shaven. I admit.. I miss the bumfluff.

...Damn ladies.

Will post something when I am happy with the result, it's still in the slightly scruffy stage before all the little gaps get filled.

Re: Have you got a beard?

Have the long thick sideburns and goatee combo come back into fashion yet? Methinks this needs to be brought back into mainstream. I imagine I'd get egged if I tried that right now.

I'd personally steer clear of anything involving a goatee (the full one, connecting the moustache with the chin hair). But then again, it's a highly personal thing depending on the way your facial hair grows and most importantly, on your own preference.

On second thought, go for it. You might bring it back.

That's my look Long sideburns, goatee and moustache.

Basically the Will Turner from Pirates of the Caribbean:

But much thicker, and more Haitian.

I bump this too because only several days ago I had a discussion with my one female friend about beards and what's better in fact for ladies, to be shaven or with a beard
I don't think that beards are too hipster these days, in my opinion too hipster is that wish of many guys to grow a beard for becoming more masculine But thinking so without any other character features which make a man really a man is so funny in fact! And my friend deeply agreed with this Also every woman has her own tastes for beards, for example, she likes both styles, except the stubble
And in my case I preferred to shave for the most years of my life but not so long ago I decided to grow a beard, a full one like on these photos http://machohairstyles.com/best-full-beard/ My current one is short and I really like how it fits me

It's safe to say that a beard would just hamper him to play his best, but bread? Come on, there are alway gluten-free alternatives (w/o wheat, barley and oats), even gluten-free bread.
