Full Set

I personally have had my chit in (yes ratty "Request to discontinue shaving") with my wife since leaving the mob just wondering how many of us still sport the regulation 'full set' on leaving the mob. Just a bit of fun, obviousley a full set in the mob is a thing to be proud of but how do you feel people perceive you and your beard?
 
I have had mine since joining my first nuclear boat some 35+ years ago apart from a short period when it was shaved off for 'Children in Need'.

Mine's off at present, but as I feel lost, cold and young looking without it, I shall be regrowing it in the Autumn. After all, with my hair disappearing fast, I don't want to end up looking like a freshly shorn recruit, especially as these days I automatically wake-up at 0530 every morning! :oops:
 
Mines not coming off again, at least not unless some one puts an awful lot of cash into some charity. I kept it off for a couple of months to let various people who had never seen me clean shaven see what I looked like, but it only reminded me how barbaric the process of shaving was.

I think waking up early naturally is an old age thing, suffer from it myself but only at 0600.

Do not worry about the hair thinning on top. It is a fact that you not lose any hair. What actually happens as you gracefully age is that you suffer slippage of your hair. It will procees downwards through your head and appear out of your nose or ears.

Stand by me, it has happened already.

and its a full set for me. wouldnt be without it. dont you just hate it when your tash gets too long and curls over your top lip.

it has to be said these days its one thing that men only do(as a general rule that is)(i suppose there are some older ladies who sport a tash - yuk)

i would have added a smilie but there aint one with a full set!!
 
had one for 46 years shaved most of it off when i left the mob thinking how handsome i was with a moustache when my good lady passed a disparaging remark its like supping soup without salt,needless to say experiment cancelled.( dread to think of the remarks concerning my wife but hey im a big boy)


abstaining is a fine thing but it should only be done in moderation.

Had mine for years, getting nice and snowy white (to match me head -what there is of that) What wi th my current bodily profile, reckon I'd be right for a Father Xmas job this year
