“Wherever the oppression of bare-lipped sneers threaten the sovereignty of a chin, wherever the strand that binds man to nature is strained, wherever history is trimmed to satisfy the whims of the trimmer, we will be there. We are the whisker that will not be plucked. We are Beardivism.”

Beard of Action: Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci

davinciimagination

Polymath.  Renaissance Man.  Multipotentialite.  Homo Universalis.  Call him what you will, da Vinci is the archetype by which creative genius is measured.  An unquenchable curiosity lead da Vinci to pursue and excel at painting, sculpting, architecture, music, math, engineering, inventing, anatomy, geology, cartography, botany and writing.  Where the world today would undoubtedly prescribe a pill in the face of such unbridled multifarious imagination, da Vinci’s predilections flourished under the admiration and support of his contemporary peers and noblemen.  For his perpetual investigation of all things both physical and metaphysical, including the wild frontiers of chin fashion, we hereby name Leonardo da Vinci a patently protean Beard of Action.

Gear’d: Captain Fawcett (CF.332) Private Stock Beard Oil

capt fawcett

With recipes purportedly deciphered from the travel journals of a Captain Peabody Fawcett (unrelated, we hope, to famed Nietzschean eugenicist Lt. Colonel Percy Harrison Fawcett), the modern eponymous firm Captain Fawcett Ltd. has developed an array of chin-centric products for today’s gentleman.  We have been recently using Captain Fawcett’s Beard Oil, and must say that the results have been favorable, indeed.

Though, in application, Captain Fawcett’s Beard Oil operates identically to the many others that we have, at one time or another, applied to our face-nethers, it has found its way into our morning sundries rotation.  Captain Fawcett’s oil provides a close enough so as to be practically equal amount of sheen and moisturizing to others we have tried, and bestows, despite our always high hopes, no preternatural growth or abilities, and yet we do find ourselves favoring this precious bottle.  Why, you ask.  Because Captain Fawcett’s Beard Oil smells extraordinary.

Exotic, yet refined, the aromas of patchouli, lemongrass, and cedar linger throughout the day, whispering –not shouting– suggestions of distant dirt-floor markets and unknown shores.  Without overpowering, the way some colognes will, Captain Fawcett Beard Oil’s subtle fragrance remains on the delicate side of the spectrum, more suitable for slacks than denim.  However, the spell this oil casts is potent enough to make even us consider purchasing a set of khakis and taking up adventuring for ourselves, were it not for the sudden and marked escalation of swooning women to occupy us at the present.

If you would like to try a beard salve that’s slightly off the beaten path, we can happily recommend giving Captain Fawcett’s Private Stock Beard Oil a try.

See Captain Fawcett’s website for more details on ordering and other bespoke products.

Here is the Yeard

yeard6Terminalbeard (of terminalbeard.wordpress.com) recently shared some fascinating thoughts and measurements after a full year of unrestricted facial hair growth at his internet blog.  He has not limited his quest for terminal length solely to whiskers, however; TB began his journey twelve months ago with a completely blank canvas: head, chin, even eyebrows.  The resulting growth measurements will surely prove useful to research here, at The Center for Beard Related Studies, but we imagine that, as TB’s fieldwork progresses, the rest of the scientific and academic community will take note.  To read more of the journey, and see the measured results for yourself, please head over to Terminalbeard’s Here is the Yeard.  Beard on, indeed.

“To be free requires cognizance of not just one’s unbeckoned volitions and appetites, but release from these constraints. And when you cast off your social and self-imposed burdens, you find and recognize, at your core, your most basic motivators and natural self. Even the most groomed beards reflect this primeval stuggle for freedom.”
