I grew a beard last Fall when I was in London b'c I wouldn't be working for a couple of months and wouldn't have to face an employer during the awkward middling stage of growth. I've noticed a ton of beards around NY, particularly with the unwashed Brooklyn masses. I thought it was heightened awareness b'c I was now a member of this folicularly-gifted subset of the urban landscape. But apparently it's b'c I'm trendy as fuck. I love that the Gray Lady published quotes of hipsters talking about how much their girlfriends like their beards. Claire digs mine, so I guess this isn't an instance of agenda journalism.
