    ODD, I looked at that pict of your/Lit's facial hair and was about to say "lame" until it made me think of King Tut. Now I amend my comment to "cool".

    I'd say that your connection to King Tut is actually pretty accurate. Since I don't braid mine in a small strand, it's much more "square", like that of the young king's.

    It's not a conventional look, but it works for my appearance. I've been everything from rockabilly to goth in my teens, but I'm now trying to cultivate a slightly less outlandish appearance (I'm still a rocker, with a few well-done tattoos and long hair, but I've exchanged my skateshoes for Steve Maddens and my numetal for indie rock).

    Since my original post, I've grown my sideburns into more of the shape of the picture faustian bargain posted, but with the lengthened goatee.

    One more reason I have a goatee: chin burns and extra cushioning when I am wearing the men for kendo (the headgear). Because it anchors around the face and under the chin, the material can burn me if I have shaved under my chin completely plus it adds a little more cushioning for when I get popped on the noggin!
