Modest Mustache

It’s Movember, Beards of Denver faithful, and to kick it off right we bring you a magnificent, yet modest, mustache! Meet Macon, who has been growing his stellar ‘stache for over two years.  Originally from Houston, Macon’s been a Coloradoan since 2001 and a Denverite since 2007.  He told us the best part of sporting his ‘stache is that people buy him drinks all the time, and the worst part is that everyone wants to talk about it—guilty as charged—particularly bros, kids, and cougars (why are we not surprised about the cougars?  Look at that face!)  In fact, Macon’s been beckoned by cougars who asked him if mustache rides are free; Ladies, take note: Please buy the gentleman a drink first! While most people approach Macon to admire his mustache, occasionally people are aggressive; and he even got called out on the 16th Street mall recently. Obviously, that person needed to feel the ‘stache love.  Speaking of love, Macon said his sweethearts are a fan of his ‘stache, and are always surprised at how soft it is, which may be due to the fact he waxes it almost everyday with mustache wax a friend gave him called Mr. Mustard’s Magnificent Magical Mustache Manicuring Miracle Wax (say that five times fast), which he keeps in his pocket right next to his Altoids. We love that dedication to the ‘stache. Macon’s mom and sis like his ‘stache more than when he had his beard, as they want to see those gorgeous cheekbones! Understandable, ladies. Macon told us when he rocked his beard it was really wiry, but he figured it was a good way to find a great lady: If a girl loved him with his big, wiry, ridiculous beard she must really love him.  We’re just glad at least the ‘stache lives on. Besides growing that superb ‘stache, Macon is a professional musician, playing upright bass and guitar in a few bands in town, including the wonderful band Paper Bird (who we’re big fans of here at Beards of Denver). He also dabbles in landscaping, carpentry, and soon pedi-cabbing.  We predict people will be lining up to get a pedi-cab ride from this ‘stache!  If you see Macon around, perhaps just give him a knowing nod of appreciation; he likes that his ‘stache is well-received but doesn’t always need to talk about it. Duly noted, and most appreciated. Thanks Macon!

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.

Beard 1, A.L.L 0

Jon gives a whole new meaning to the term 'Bad Ass Beard'. This self described "shady Broncos orange” beard has made one hell of a come back. His poor chin was temporarily naked while Jon kicked the shit out of cancer. Two years later, the beard is back and better than ever! Thanks for sharing, Jon! A beard that can take down A.L.L is one beard you don't want to mess with.

Holy Cow

New year, new beard, new bitch. Same onesie. It is with great pleasure that we introduce you all to Joe. Ladies, you're welcome. This hot piece did us all a favor and became a Denver resident a few years back when he started to realize his talents were a bit too much for his home town of Effingham to handle. Joe has won multiple cottage cheese eating competitions and is Royal Crest’s most valued customer. Any man that can pull off a onesie can surely grow a burly beard. Joe, you really add a special something to Denver and the bearded community. Keep your eye out for this one, you can typically find him pigeon hunting, tap dancing or babysitting kittens.

Ill stache

We found this extra special Imperial stache pouring some delicious ESB beer brewed by your very own Denver Beer Co last Sunday night. Nick’s mustache needed to be celebrated, so he’s our honorary guest stache of the month. Nick left the treacherous terrain of Illinois several years back. It was on his journey west that he decided to let the stache do as it pleased, and we thank him for it every day. Nick is currently in the process of becoming even more distinguished; he will soon be a cicerone. Nick, we’re pretty sure you can just show up for the test, give them a peak at your upper lip, and the title is yours. Do yourself a favor, head on over to the DBC, order a beer or seven (and a jumbo pretzel) and let Nick fill your curious brain with all you’ll ever need to know about brews and what mustache wax to buy.

Guest ‘Stache

Even though we contain most of our mad love for beards here at Beards of Denver, occasionally we spread that love to a great Stand Alone Mustache. Wesley from Nashville came out to Vegas to compete in the Dali mustache category. He’s a welder and printer in Tennessee and decided to grow his stache for the simple joy of it all. Pretty awesome if we do say so ourselves
