Guy scruff: yaay or nay?

Ok, ok, some unnamed individuals (I so want to name all you guys right now) said there’s not enough guy stuff on here. I’m so taking suggestions if you have some in mind, or under the radar guy products…but ANYWAY, in the same conversation I was asked by another friend, we’ll just call him Harvey, what I thought about his new beard scruff.

I don’t know why but I’m personally a fan of the facial hair — on guys. It can’t be out of control of course…but yeah, I figured this is an opportune time to take a poll (Hi ladies, do this so my guy friends stop complaining, kthanks. And yes, you guys too — this should give you something to do :)).

Anddd, my favorite examples of scruff done right:

Patrick Dempsey aka McDreamy

    I partially agree with your statement that beard scruff is awesome BUT in all honesty it depends on the ethnicity. For example, beards/beard scruff often look rugged/manly/awesome on caucasian males as evidenced by many of the pictures you posted. It makes white males look like the strong outdoors type that can cut your firewood if you get cold. However, it usually looks sketch and unattractive on asians and indians. It makes us look like the guys that will sell you a Coach bag for $10. This is a terrible tragedy i have to live with every day.

    also, in reference to ‘some guy’s post, facial hair definitely suits indian men as well. just look at john abraham. yum.

    Yeah, I’m going to have to disagree with scruff not looking good on desi guys. Besides the overwhelming response I’ve just gotten (via email/im’s too) about girls liking scruff, I think you guys might just be underrating it.

    I need scruff to not look 12. I shaved and subsequently got carded at an R rated movie. FML.

    As my uncle likes to say – “much nahin, thoo kuch nahin”
    Translation: if you don’t have a mustache – you have nothing.
