The Wisdom of Beards

Much to the dismay of my partner, parents, numerous friends and even some random people I have met, I have recently grown a beard.

This beard has even been the subject of a royal decree (this is no joke) when HRH Prince Philip suggested in casual conversation that I should “Cut it off and use it to stuff a pillow”.

At this stage I have failed to comply, and am still in possession of my beard, so potentially am doing something illegal. No matter.

A brief review of this wonderful website, sheds some light on this history of my chosen facial decoration, along with that of numerous other styles (with which I may or may not experiment in the future).

The important part to focus on is of course the last part about a full beard being a sign throughout history, a sign of virility and age and wisdom. What can I say.

And if you happen to be one of the unlucky ones who cannot grow a beard (e.g. female), well do not despair.  You too can look virile, old and wise.

See how virile etc these people all look!!! Amazing. Anyway, you can (and probably should) order yours here, at

You can even make your children old / wise / virile and a little scary too. See! Ok, maybe stay away from this look.

And in case you wanted to see a field test (I did!) check out the Park City TV Field Test!

Don’t say I don’t provide thorough analysis of important things like beards.

    Definitely pro-beard. I started my effort in June when I went to Iceland and haven’t looked back.

    And the proof…
    In the gardens of Heidelberg Schloss

    Thankfully my wife approves!

    I fully endorse all beard-growing endeavours. I grew mine last March and it has met with full approbation from all I meet, with only a few minor naysayers, and what do those clean-shaven nincompoops know anyway?

    They’re just jealous.

    I’m surprised you haven’t included a photo of your own effort. I myself have been growing what looks more like a teenage lack of razor, rather than intentional beard growth. However, it is mine and I am proud.
