Happy New Year!
2017 is already shaping up to be a good year for our bearded brothers. Both Detroit police officers and the NYPD can now grow beards (for religious reasons), while the Army is considering allowing men to grow beards, though testing is still being done to make sure a beard will work with protective equipment. And it’s full beard ahead for Andrew “Beef” Johnston, the English pro golfer who was told after his European Tour win at the Spanish Open that a beard was bad for his image in golf. He’s keeping his signature beard and just gained a PGA Tour card for 2017.
Also, join us on a little nostalgia trip as we take a look back at our favorite posts of 2016.
Let’s get this year started off right!
