Wet Beard-Update!

Last month we reported on Olympic Champ Michael Phelps’ new facial hair, as well his surprisingly slow times in qualifying. Some blamed the beard and some blamed the lack of his streamlined suit, which is soon to be banned; but despite the chatter no one offered a solution. Luckily Pete Shepherd, here at the Beardsmith, has solved Phelps’ speed or style conundrum by designing the Beard Cap.

The figures above show the evolution of the traditional swimming cap into something that can accommodate a beard. The mock up image at the top shows us that, while Phelps’ does look like he’s about to rob someone, he’s going like a bullet.
