Anyone here grow a winter beard? I did my first REAL beard last year and thought I'd give it another go this year. at the age of 32 now, i think puberty has finally set in so it isn't patchy like it used to be. My grandpa always claimed that we have native American in our blood, thus the lack of chest hair and any substantial facial hair, he was a fibber, but I certainly am not growing any Tom Selleck type mustaches. When do you start growing? i just started mine this last weekend. We always take a family picture out at the timber to send out for Christmas, so I couldn't be too scraggly for that (took it on Sunday). I want it to look like I'm doing it on purpose by Thanksgiving or at least by Christmas, but It grows so slow I dunno if it'll be ready until February, lol.
