It's funny, we both had surgery and both got lazy in shaving and documented our MPB progression because of it!
PS, I did answer the survey. But it should have had a option where there is a lot of thinning! As you can see in my pic from my previous post, I have the bald spot in the back and thinning all over the top. Looking back at family genetics, my grandfather on my dad's side had the hair pattern I have now in his 50's. and ended up with the fringe. So I think that is where I am going. So I answered horseshoe.
Well I looked at your photos...I was going to say that at that time you would have been a four except that you appeared to be losing it some on the sides, which would put you at five...My apologies for not including "thinning" on the original poll, I thought as long as skin was showing it would be considered bald. I guess if you could vote again you would vote on either the third or fifth choice, I voted receding hairline on myself, but maybe I should have voted "horseshoe" too. Funny your pics from 2010 look like my photos now, except my sides are slightly higher, BTW the shorter beard looked pretty good too, although the thick beard that you sport now is pretty nice also!
