    I didn't want to hijack the shaving thread, so I'll start one of my own. Seems like I'm coming back to my old "I don't care what other people think", and it also sort of dovetails into the manners conversation....

    I HATE shaving. I don't cut myself, I don't need styptic pencils, I don't get any joy out of metrosexuality... I just hate shaving. And I don't really understand all the fuss over it. First of all, I'm married. So I'm not out their trying to look my best because I'm trying to pick up a woman. Second, I don't believe it shows bad manners not to be "groomed". I don't have body-odor and take preventative action. BO is offensive. A man without a clean shave is not offensive (much like my stance that wearing a hat in a restaurant is NOT offensive, yet some are offended by it).

    I'm much like one of the responders (I should credit, but I'm too damn lazy to look at the original thread). I let me stubble grow, and if I have to be out in front of important customers I'll take out the buzzer and buzz it down as evenly as I can. Half the time I look in the mirror on the way to my appointment and see a big spot I missed. My shaving or lack thereof has never cost me a sale...

    AND, I have nothing against those that relish shaving. (PS... I also HATE getting my haircut. I can seriously think of no bigger waste of an hour of my life.... I use the buzzer on my head as well).

    There. Take that.

    I only shave about once a week

    I couldn’t stand having to shave every day

    Just about the time it gets scruffy it goes

    I keep my hair short, and I shave everyday. I don't like getting a haircut and I don't like shaving. But, I do like feeling 'cleaned up' and when I had long hair and the times I grew a beard, I just felt hot. I don't get looking at other folks and trying to make sense of their habits or making some judgement about what they do... the hipster metro thing couldn't be me if I tried.

    When I was working in a professional setting I shaved every day. Now, I let it go till it starts itching and aggravating me - around a week.

    I buzz down to a number 1 each week as well as shave my head. If I try to grow a beard I end up with either the Keanu or Wheaton, whose "beards" suck but they can get away with because they're famous. I have no such luxury.

    That's my contribution to this stupidity.

    I haven’t shaved regularly since the “thing that shall not be named” started. At first, before everyone fell in love with Zoom for some reason, I didn’t shave at all and grew a ratty looking beard just to see what would happen. Well, I survived...

    Now, I shave once a week on Sunday night or Monday morning whether I need to or not.

    I, too have not shaved since the "thing that shall not be mentioned" started. This is the longest I've ever had my beard, not sure how long I'm going to let it grow. I will probably trim it at some point because I don't want it to look ratty, but so far it's grown out pretty evenly. My daughter is a barber, so I'll go with her recommendation, which is for now: "let it grow."

    Personal hygiene (bathing, clean draws, socks, a little foot powder in to ones Jordons') goes a log way in the promotion of peace love and understanding, Hair cuts , and shaving are fashion .
    I been a really good boy, I've been quarantined since the third of March. I finally realized there wasn't any point in shaving, so I am just letting it grow. Honestly it looks kinda' mangy

    (
    see image below)

    But hey, do I care ( honestly a little bit but ) but not enough to keep me shaving.
    clean body, clean cloths, clean sheets, and I good to go , and yes I use deodorant.
    I like to wear my cloths t-shirts, jeans until they are all most thread bare because
    they get so soft. oh yeah, I'm make a class statement I dress down.
    Who am I suppose to be impressing, Dressing up all fancy and everything, sheet, dress code : I'm not going.
    BUT I will be clean and polite without regard to whether I',m in or out.
    I like beat up guitars too.

    I have been wearing a beard several years. Hate looking clean shaven. Don't look like myself.
