Had the facial hair before going sly. Now, I think taking it off would be just too much skin exposure.

Have consistently had a mustache most of my adult life.  When I retired from the Air Force I've kept at least a goatee with the 'stache and will go for the full beard here shortly for the winter.

Sly from 2005-2007.

Sly this time since July 24.

Strangly enough, I have never ever grown any facial hair. Not even in my 'wild hippie days' when I tried to get my hair as long as possible  ;)

However, about week ago I saw this poll and was suprised that the majority of sly guys have facial hair.

So, I've decide to join in and stopped shaving (my face, not the head!). Just out of curiosity. I'm interested to see how it looks. 

I'll give a few weeks (hmm, come to think of it: I think the 30 days rule applies here just as well).

I trim my beard, but I hate shaving my face. I stopped the day I left the Army.

I'm a recent convert to the face hair club! It is a post-military experience.  Early on in my adult life I tried a stash and looked like some guy named Adolf, when I trimmed my stash to regulation size.  :o So, I've waited (for decades ???) and the time has come.  This is an eye opening experience.  O0
And yes, I need to update my photo.  ;)

Had my goatee long before I went sly.(started it in the army at age 18)
Started going sly at 2005.(6 years later)
Can't live without my goatee.
Without it,I look 10 years younger,and very strange.
Only thing I hate about it,is trimming it with a shaving machine when it goes too thick and wild,and God,I hate hair flying all over the place.(that's one of the main reasons I went sly,and don't just trim my hair as short as possible with a machine)

Too late, the goat's coming off.  I got advise to remove it for interviewing.  It seems to be a distraction for talking to someone about getting a job.  Go figure.   :/O

I shave my face, but I've been trying to grow a nice goatee or beard, its just that time period where its not all the way there that gets me everytime. I'm going to try growing one again starting tomorrow.

OK, I'm growing it back!  Give me a few weeks (actually about a month or more!  :*)) :*))

Yeah.  Unfortunately, too serious.  As I said on another thread, the job fair was a bust, waste of time. Back to not shaving (much). :*))

I know how you feel, I had a really important doctors appointment on Monday and I figured I should look good because it wad my first time having an appointment with this doctor. I had a good 9-10 day beard going (longest I've gone without shaving since I began 3 years ago) and the doctors appointment was so laid back and the doctor was really nice. I'm still frustrated with myself for shaving, I almost had a faint glimmer of a goatee going on.
