Goatee or Not?
« on: August 04, 2015, 06:26:28 PM »
On vacation with the family this week. Thought I'd give a goatee a try since I've read comments from many of my fellow sly guys that facial hair helps round out the look. Give me your thoughts.

Here's a before pic:



And the start of the goatee:

Yes, its a good start.  Get some length on it before making a judgement, I think you will like it.

I vote for the goatee.

I know that most of the guys are bullish on facial hair; but I vote No.  You have such a clean cut, military, athletic look - why look like so many others with a goatee?

I think you could pull off either look really well.  It's worth a try for sure.

Give it a try for at least two weeks.  If you don't like it you look good clean shaven anyway.

So far, so good.  I'd let it keep growing.

Thanks for the replies guys. I figured I'll let it go at least until the end of the vacation and see how it looks. I'm on the fence and appreciate the input.

Keep it going for a while. I've had one so long now I don't remember what I look like without it.

Bit hard to tell, as it's not defined, but a goatee always looks good :)

I find the goatee is easy to grow.  I alternate during the year between a beard, goatee, and clean shaven.  When I get bored, I change.  Unlike the hair on my head, the hair on my face always comes back!
