In recent months, a debate has slowly arisen around whether or not America has truly reached "peak beard." But while whiskers may be more common than ever (often for the wrong reasons), we aren't convinced that the issue is as black and white as they say.
Should we strive to stay ahead of the curve, as the commercial seems to imply? Or is sticking to your guns (and your beard of many years) the worthier part to play? Whatever your stance on the issue, we hope you would agree that beards are a force for good, and that they'll never truly go out of style, even if they're out of the limelight.
Who knows, if you choose to keep your scruff, you might be ahead of the curve again sooner than you think.
