Beards. Since they exploded they’ve been the subject of scientific scrutiny, memes, restaurant hygiene regulations, and general, good old-fashioned controversy. There’s simply a lot happening with us bearded folk. So we’ve decided to begin a recurring feature called “Best of the Web," where we will bring you the latest in beard and moustache news so you can keep tabs on your bearded brothers.

As always, we believe in community and encourage comments, discussion, and good vibes. Let us know what you think of this new feature in the comments below – or give us a shout out on our Instagram or Facebook.
