What's Up With This Trend In Beards?

I have noticed on my travels around Sunderland that many blokes are starting to wear thick beards.
Obviously its up to them but in my opinion they look awful.
They are especially horrible on the young lads.
Some are really thick and some are far too long.
I can't see any of these bearded Sunderland lads getting a girlfriend looking like they do.
Is this just a passing phase?
I hope so as the lads don't do themselves any favours.
Haway Sunderland lads, smarten yourselves up a bit and buy a razor.
I might have the day off today!

Thought it was just me :lol:
I saw a few lads in their early twenties with thick beards recently and they look grotesque.
I told them as well ;)

An unkempt beard does look crap like.

I prefer clean shaven myself but we are all different. I wouldn't like my kids to wear a beard though.
My kids are like little Black Cats

Nicely trimmed beards can look alright but some of them are so bushy, they look comical.

I sometimes go a few days without shaving and I get irritated by my bristles and quickly shave it all off.
So I don't know what it would be like with a beard, but I have also noticed some youngens wearing them and I feel sorry for them :lol:

Some kids in Sunderland that wear a beard must be influenced by Muslims and their thick beards. Not kidding, they just look totally wrong on these kids.
