No nonsense Beards

One of our favorite parts about this bearded community is that there really is an outpouring of support for the bearded man. Always wear your beard with pride, men of Denver. You never if there’s a B of D ghost writer on your trail. We owe a big “thank you” to our friend Amy for introducing us to these fine gentlemen. Meet Dave and Jack. Amy put together a question and answer sheet for them and set up a photo shoot. Nicely done, friend! Here’s how they answered (Dave loves the striped tie. Jack puts his hand in his pocket when drinking coffee):   Dave: How old is your beard? Grew full beard when I turned 21 (When all men should) Does the beard give you trouble in the corporate world?  No. I don’t let the man keep me down. (Gave us chills) Favorite part? Stroking it when in deep contemplation.  What do the ladies think of your beard? Ladies love the beard. A woman who isn’t into bearded men probably isn’t into men. (Note: new t-shirt idea). Would you shave your beard for a particular job? Yeah, because the great thing about beards is they grow back. What does mom think of the beard? I’m not sure, we’ve never had “the talk”. She’s never said she dislikes it so I’ll go ahead and say she’s a fan. Jack: How old is your beard? On and off for the past 7 years  Does the beard give you trouble in the corporate world?  No. Favorite part? Do you kjnow how the drink “Tom Collins” got it’s name? What is the fastest route in and out of an IKEA? Those are the kinds of questions you have to be able to answer when you have a beard, so I guess it is the sense of public stewardship and responsibility that I enjoy most. What do the ladies think of your beard? It’s tough to discern the difference between a ‘good’ double-take and a ‘bad’ one, but so far I haven’t had any complaints. Would you shave your beard for a particular job? Are astronauts allowed to have beards? What does mom think of the beard? She thinks I’m covering my face. Like my beard is some sort of catcher’s mask that I’m forced to wear from time to time. At this point she’s used to it, but suffice it to say she’s not a huge fan.
