I have puzzled over the male facial hair fashion..........or whatever one might use describe the current near obligitory masculine statement.  Razor and shaving cream manufacturers are also wondering what the hell went wrong with the clean look.

Here is some speculation about how and why the men's"me too" fashion statement came to pass........https://newrepublic.com/article/154033/american-beards-military-culture?utm_source=pocket-newtab

I look better with a beard and I'm not going to put effort into looking worse. It's as simple as that.

The Jak of the Jumboness hits the nail on the head.

The "clean look", doesn't work for everyone.

I find men with facial hair, actually, men who are hairy all over, a lot more attractive.

This is so cool.  :tellmemore:

My wife prefers me clean shaven. I can go facial hair or not. (Electric Razor here... I'm in the JJ range ;-) )

However...

I don't like the "can't be bothered to finish shaving, aka, 3-day beard kinda shabby look".
Just. Wrong.

I think I look goofy without growing a little bit of facial hair (limited to around the mouth).  I can stand myself better.
