Well, as much as it pains me to say this... I'm out. "Sometimes a man has to do, what a man has to do."

On a positive note, this is the longest I have ever let my beard grow, and it has been a blast getting to share it with you all.
I shaved because I had an interview today and needed to be a little more professional that my trimmed beard could be.
And, as sad as this is, my wife could not be happier. And when mom is happy, everyone is happy.

Here is a fun compilation of me shaving I figured if I'm going out, I'm going out in style.

Thanks for everything guys, and keep growing and showing!!!

Goodbye to the best neckbeard I ever did see.

Here's a sound plan for the near future: Resist shaving your upper lip and join us in May with that bodacious moustache.

the irony of talking about mandom and the things to be done, while de-bearding. alas.

Fucking Shame Taco.

(nice photos though. Though I imagine this would break the no photoshop rule on top of the fact that you shaved. i guess go all out, right?)

The worst part is that in our culture shaving is considered more professional. Down with the man! Shame on the man that must go beardless to get a good job.

I know all the people you would have been interviewing with and they all love you and your beard.

As a newbie, you were inspirational. My hat goes off to you. Now, I must get down to business brother.
