    I tend to have facial hair quite often, mostly because shaving fucking blows. I assume other dudes feel the same way. As workplaces have gotten more casual, I think everyone is saying "screw it; 10 more minutes of sleep!"

    I have a beard for exactly this reason.

    Saying it's because you don't like shaving is a little different, since I think the other poster was talking about actual beards, which are starting to reach critical mass.

    I'm with you though on shaving people awful though. I don't think I've been clean shaven, with the exception of one job interview, since I broke up with my highschool girlfriend sometime senior year. I just buzz it down when it gets a little length to it and that's it, but I wouldn't consider this a beard.

    Shaving was the worst.

    I won't be entering this any time soon, but I do have an actual beard rather than just scruff. If I go a week without cleaning it up you can hardly tell the difference, whereas going a few days without shaving (back when I was clean-shaven) made a very obvious difference. And I hated shaving all the time so I just let it grown in. I think I look better with it anyway.

    whoever owns BoO must be making fucking bank. I'm all for paying more for quality, but I have a hard time believing that they are not making an obscene profit off some of their pieces.

    Is BoO still popular ? The hype seems to have died down over the last year, what with all the other slim fitting shirts alternatives etc

    Yeah, I would imagine Scott Sternberg is just floating in money. Fuck boo though, I've never been in a position where I cant comfortably wear a DOUBLE Xl shirt. I'm going to go cry my fatass to sleep now.

    I just get into the habit of shaving after my shower and it's good. Keeps my skin clear when i'm consistent like that too. It's really not much of a bother when you're in the habit, takes 3 mins.

    My shaving routine requires a beard trimmer and an electric shaver. Oh yes, and a shower.

    I trim my beard down to a 0 before my shower. After the shower, I pat my face off and then I use the electric shaver to get the rest. No pricking, pulling, in-grown hairs. No pain, and a clean shave.

    If I shaved every day (or even every other day), I wouldn't need the trim step, but I'm lazy and have no reason to have to shave every day, so this is my routine. It takes about 3-5 minutes longer than a shave every day would take (which would probably be no more than 30 seconds to 2 minutes anyways).

    i think their cut is still pretty exclusive to the brand. gitman vintage fits me fairly well off the rack, but the first time i tried on a BoO shirt i was blown away.

    Do I recall hearing about a service that will sell things on Y!JP for you or did I make that up?

    I think the WvG Before Dinner shirt fit better, frankly, although I could use another inch or so of sleeve length.

    "better" is subjective though, isn't it? not having tried either BoO or WvG, I imagine that what fits you better may not fit someone else better.

    Just poppin in to say that gqeye.tumblr.com is a spectacular parody of itself. Not sure if it's real or not, seems a little too sophisticated for the Web in general but who knows.
