Young dudes with beards

April 28, 2012

What is it with young men and the proud display of full beards? This thing does not show that you are learned. Instead, you look like you need a bath.
There are some men, notably older and more charming, that can pull off a beard. Note this guy

Sean Connery looks great in a beard, but that’s because he’s Sean Connery. He looks wise, laid back, gentlemanly. Young guys with beards will never look that way with a beard.
Here’s another one that doesn’t work, proving that young men can’t pull off the beard.

And he’s not even that young. He just looks weird. Not like Brad Pitt, but like Brad Pitt trying not to be himself. It’s like he woke up one day and said, “Damn, this acting stuff is getting to me, I better grow a beard and try to be something different for a while.” Exactly Brad, you are being a weirdo.
I don’t know when this shit started. Maybe it started long ago. But guys in their twenties started showing up at work with full beards. I do a double take and think to myself, “Self, don’t ever grow a fucking beard.”
