Recession beard.

Friday, 26 September 2008


The “Wall Street meltdown” head lines on every single morning newspaper might not have had a direct affect on ones habit of buying a bottle of Fanta every Friday nights, but it’s a sign of how the Western economy is suffering. So on Monday give your boss a nice cuddly hug as a prevention of him/her sacking you when it’s time to kick people off the ship. More importantly starting cutting down on your living costs!

Although it’s a sensational feeling rubbing and touching your jaw after a good shave keeping the face smooth as a rubber bracelet, it’s can be a pricey cosmetic treatment. Razors, shaving cream, moisturizing and aftershave can add up to a sizable chunk of money so why not relinquish the caveman inside you but not shaving for a while. Grow a mean and commanding beard like Triton in “The little Mermaid” movie. A beard makes you look older and age is associated with wisdom. Superb way of making sure you’re taken more serious by a sales guy when you’re turning your phone in for a questionable warranty claim.
Beard role model of the moment is undoubtedly French model Patrick Petitjean who one character to put to memory. He’s on the cover for October GQ Style and is the front man of Prada’s AW08 ad campaign. Dense as tropical forest Patrick’s impressive beard makes him look like an immortal 203 year old Greek god rising from the ocean to takeover the newly completed Atlantis hotel in Dubai. What’s shocking is that he’s merely 24. Don’t kid yourself, this is a bear only few men can grow, but one can always try.

He's isn't 24, although you will find that online. He's actually 37 and has been modeling since the mid-1990s.
