Beards are the New Black

As unlikely as it sounds, the law of averages predicts I would coincide with a fashion trend eventually, I guess. According to this article in the New York Times, Paul Bunyan, Modern-Day Sex Symbol, beards are all the rage.

“This is some sort of reaction to men who look scrubbed, shaved, plucked and waxed,” said the designer Bryan Bradley, who stepped onto the runway after his Tuleh presentation looking like a renegade from the John Bartlett show, at which more than half the models wore beards: untidy ones that scaled a spectrum from wiry to ratty to shabby to fully bushy.

“It’s less ‘little boy,’ ” Mr. Bradley said. “For a while men have looked too much like Boy Scouts going off to day camp.”

My vacation from shaving has turned into a sabbatical.
