As for a closely cropped full beard, I've tried to imagine what I'd look like with it, but between the amount of effort it would take to keep such facial topiary in good trim, and the outlay in hair dye (my beard is quite grey, naturally, at this point), I think that I will be lazy, and merely shave every morning.
You don't like it, teh grey beard? Could look sharp in the oldog/oldtrix style, Señor Crust. As for today's fit, I'm impressed by the depth of your accessories wardrobe and how consistently you're able to find coordinating items.

Picture quality is meh, sadly my camera is with my sister in Brittany.
The jacket is striped navy/blue; close up with actual (if a bit too dark) colors in the spoiler, and the shirt is striped white/light blue.

Collar is too small, and you look like you're swimming in that jacket. The jacket also looks like an orphaned suit jacket rather than a sportscoat.
I like this ^ in general except for two things. First, the PS needs more pop. Second, the slacks are cut like jodhpurs -- skinny at the shins and fat through the thighs. That's never a good look.
Think of it this way: If Gwyneth can't pull it off, then neither can you.
Was going to make the same comment. The wrinkling and ripples around the calves just signify poor fit. You might get away with it in a casual outfit, but you seem to be wearing the WAYWRN version of the mullet, business up top, party down below..
