The Hierarchy of Beards

created at: 12/13/2010

Dude, everyone knows the Queen's Brigade isn't as awesome as the Flapwings.

Oh, you didn't? Then you, my friend, need to get a copy of "The Hierarchy of Beards."

Beards have been part of humanity's hairy history for decades.

Crocheted Beard Beanies!

created at: 11/02/2010

Yesterday's weird beard post prompted ManMade reader Ryan D. to point out the most excellent Etsy shop of Taraduff - maker of bearded beanies! I love when I discover stuff I didn't know I needed.

Sculptural Facial Hair and Other Beard Weirdness

created at: 11/01/2010

At first glance, you might wonder, "why on earth would anyone do such things with their beard?" But, think about it for a sec. If you had facial hair worth sculpting, you'd probably do it to.

Carstache!

created at: 10/26/2010

There has been a particular trend lurking about the last few years. We refuse to say it out loud, but it has to do with automobiles, namely pickup trucks, and male body parts. Not the armpit hair convertible cover; no, not the y-chromosome scented air fresheners. The other one. You know what we mean.

We, and everyone who doesn't partake in such assaults to common sense, would like to see that trend change. So, as a replacement, might we suggest the Carstache, the global leader in automotive facial hair?

A Beard Film: Stop - Motion Facial Hair

 

created at: 10/18/2010

How'd they do that!?

A short-stop motion feature that wonders what might happen if your shaving cream allowed you to grow a beard rather than get rid of it.

Very fun to watch, and to try to figure out how they accomplished it.

20 Mustaches That Changed History

"When in the course of human events a mustache comes along that truly changes things, Aaron Perlut is there to celebrate."

Perlut is the chairman of the American Mustache Institute and is currently coordinating the AMI's third annual "Robert Goulet Memorial Mustached American of the Year" award. The self-proclaimed Dr. of Nuclear Mustachology was recently interviewed by the Atlantic monthly, saying, 

As a young man I grew up surrounded by mustaches in my family, but I was always intimidated to grow them, even though I could from a very young age, because of the public pressures against it--because they weren't cool, they weren't hip. There was a certain stigma attached to people with mustaches, that you weren't professional or intelligent, and I commited myself to working for an organization that battled against that... [We hope to achieve] an equal playing field for people of Mustached American heritage. I got off the phone earlier today with a gentleman who told me he was told that he could have a job that he wanted, if he shaved his mustache....We recently saved the job of a young man who was a college student working at a restaurant, whose employers told him that he would either shave his mustache or lose his job that he was using to pay his tuition at the University of Georgia in Athens. There is a pattern of discrimination against people who are different from whatever the norm might be at the time in this country, and facial hair is no exception.
Didn't think facial hair choices could incite so much injustice, didja?

Beard Growth Chart T-Shirt

http://0.media.bustedtees.cvcdn.com/3/3/bustedtees.aa615d83b93658b0383ed6e36081ba76.jpg

ManMade readers loved this workout measuring t-shirt last week, so here's another twist on the sternum gauge shirt: a Beard Growth Chart.

At its most basic, its a beard ruler reversed to measure growth from your chin. At its most complex, just imagine the possibilities.

Typographic Moustaches

fontstaches by Tor Weeks

Having a bit of trouble distinguishing the personalities of various typefaces? Perhaps this will help a bit - "FontStaches" (which should really be typefacestache, but we'll forgive).

It's amazing how much a simple 90-degree rotate gives a character we rarely use so much vibrance and distinctiveness.

The Trustworthiness of Beards

created at: 04/23/2010

Unless your a complete hermit and/or man craft blogger (ahem...), you come across people you don't know everyday. And it's likely that at least half of them will be men, and half of that group will have facial hair. This, it turns out, is a good thing, as the key to judging both character and sinister lies in one's beard.

So, simply print out this handy reference chart by Matt McInerney for your easy reference.

created at: 04/23/2010

Just remember, it goes left to right.
