I had a seasonal beard for 25 years...grew it in the autumn, shaved it off in the spring. I worked OK for me; saved wearing a scarf in the winter. As the years passed the inevitable flecks of grey began to take over and I gave up the practice in the early '90s.

I did grow one as a period "fancy dress" feature when we drove our old banger to the Le Mans Classic a few years back. If you wanted into "The Paddock" you have to dress in the period style of the car you drove.

The beard and tash lasted until the similarity between me and Col. Sanders was noted. lou_angry

 Man from del Monte? /Our Man in Havana?/Howard Hughes? A life time of potential roles there slowy,dont limit yourself to Satan's Chicken Frier

The first name to spring to my diseased mind was Leon Redbone. Looking like Leon Redbone would be pretty damn cool, I reckon.

I just look like a gyppo in a cravat and I'm not balding enough to need a man bun.

 Sadly that was the only day I wore that outfit...I was fuckin' boiling...France, mid-summer. I still have the Panama and still wear it occasionally on hot days. lou_lol

It'll take a while for your sets to adjust, but it's gone.

The grey badger bits were entirely unruly Monday morn, so I gave them a trim.

Then I realised that half my face was shallower than everything else, so gave the rest a trim.

Got in the motor, saw I had a big hairless patch through overzealous cultivation and went back into me ma's.  Went for a goatee.  Wore it for a day.  Did the rest in the evening.

I could potentially get to George Michael stage by the Burnley game, but I've just proved a mate wrong in the what age can you play stakes and I can't guarantee I'll need the bogs.

Blimey, this I must see. You'd better turn up for pre-match drinks now - can't be letting your public down! lou_lol Years ago I remember a friend shaving off a pretty bushy beard - I'd never known him without it, and when I first saw him it genuinely took me a few minutes to realise who he was. Even then it was more voice and accent than appearance.

Incidentally, I went unshaven for a couple of weeks earlier this year. Once I realised that my facial hair contains a far higher proportion of grey than that on my head, I decided to go back to the clean-shaven look.

Where will the two sparrows and the vole live now?

That deal with the devil didn't include facial hair then? - You should have read the small print.

Grey beard is distinguished on a man. A little disturbing on a women
