Beardvember and Style

We love Movemeber but we can’t help but have a pang of jealousy about the lack of portmanteau options a beard/month combo has. Luckily St. Johns’ County Sheriffs in Florida don’t do puns they just do beards. Sheriff David B. Shoar has permitted his staff to all grow beards to raise money for natal charity March of The Dimes. He has even set up trophies as an incentive including “Ernest Hemingway Look-A-Like Beard" and the "Most Unique Beard."

A little reminder we are still supporting Movember if you want to support the cause click the orange blip on the right and donate or sign up yourself.

On a darker note. A while back, writing for my old webzine ButtonThief, I did an article about Serial Killer style and taking fashion tips from killers: A beard, a nickname and other affectations that were easily transferable into the real world.

I don’t know if this man read it but if he did he read it closely. This is a man dubbed as the ‘Billy Goat Bandit’ accused of robbing a bank in Houston according to the Houston Chronicle. The beard, the bad boy sneer and the sunglasses already mean he’s got top marks; but how many of us take time out to pose for a picture?

Obviously we’re not condoning robbery so if Anyone has information about the Houston office of the FBI is at 01-713-693-5000. Crime Stoppers is offering up to $5,000 for information leading to the man's charging and arrest but remember, you can't put a price on style.
