33 Brilliantly Bearded Portrayals

From Drenched Bearded Men to Manly Mechanic Ads

— May 9, 2012 — Fashion
Hockey beards are back as the 2012 playoff season gets under way and these 33 Brilliantly Bearded Portrayals prove that just because the razor is being retired, one can still look dabber.

Many fall and winter look books will turn to the woodsman, mountain or lumber jack for inspiration towards new lineups. The juxtaposition between burly and rugged with new fashion apparel makes for a complementary unison between chic and scruffy.

Of course not all are able to grow epic facial hair; women and those who lack the genes to populate their face with excessive stubble need to turn to quirky creations like the Icelandic Hairy Hats to promote Playoff Beard camaraderie.
