Young men with beards
At last Thursday’s local session, I happened to notice that all the young men (ie under 30 y.o.) had beards, yet all the older men (mostly over 40, and some much more) well clean shaven.
Seemed a bit of a role-reversal from tradition. Back in the day, the older guys may or may not have had beards, but very few young guys would ever sport a beard.
So why is this? I know beards seem to be in fashion these days. But is it just fashion or is it that the young guys want to appear more senior and dignified, whereas the old crocks like me want to try and look young (and fail miserably)?
