    Nothing better than a chinstrap beard. Not creepy at all.

    I'm the most average guy ever. I'm 6 foot, 200lbs with short, balding hair (clippers with a #2 blade) and no facial hair because it makes me look older. I like Dickies T-Shirts cause they have a front pocket which is a handy place to keep a pick. Add Wrangler's cowboy cut jeans and shoes and that's me.

    Sometimes i wonder...

    If you’re a man with a chinstrap beard you know most folks are looking at you sideways :eek: but as long as your sister wives like it , who really cares ?

    So I’m walking down lower Broadway in Nashville

    I look around...

    Give my buddy an elbow to the ribs...

    And yell “Hey you with the black shirt!”

    They all turned and glared.

    And hilarity ensued!

    :)

    I don't get the chinstrap beard thing. I trim the few strays above the cheekbone and that's it. Even the wider chinstrap looks odd imo. Not sure of the reasoning behind that trend.

    There's one I call the drilling rig beard. It's a moustache and short round beard in a perfect circle...with a mouth in the middle. I have another name for it too, but around here I can't say it out loud.

    Played keys very well, too.

    Sometimes this place is an old guy's version of a fashion magazine.

    My own personal style is somewhere between Liberace and Conan the Barbarian.

    We see a fair bit of that uniform here in Aus, too. The good news is, just about all the lads I've meet with that look are pretty good value. Don't know how to explain it.

    When you get to a certain age, not even that is necessary. :D:(

    About five years ago my hair decided it was going to have the last word in my personal appearance. Apparently it grew weary of being hacked with scissors every few weeks. Packed its bags, hightailed it outta here, haven't seen it since.

    I tried the goatee and the soul patch. Too grey...and more importantly, too much work to maintain!

    That sounds like the average fans at a metal show where I live, except most are still in their 40s and some even in their 30s.

    In the 1990s some had nu metal goatees and their hair one or two inches longer and more brown.

    I'm picturing this in my mind and I'm pretty sure I'm coming up with the same nickname for it that you did...

    I consider myself a very well-groomed man. Part of my job is sales, so I must project a good image to represent my company professionally.

    Wait a second...I see nose hairs hanging out past the nostril line. Arrrgg, and the top of the ears has hair growing out of them! Now I’m seeing eyebrow hairs hanging in my vision! Eeekks the sideburns need to be trimmed! Whoa, the back of the neck is getting scragglier. Jeesh, fingernails are too long, and the cuticles need to be trimmed.

    It’s not easy to stay groomed, especially for an older guy.
