In which George Clooney's beard is better than everyone else's

I don’t pretend to have my finger on the pulse of the menswear zeitgeist. Living with The Writer, that particular division of labour is already comprehensively taken care of, although I have, by proxy, learnt more about the tie bar than I could ever possibly have known there was to know (also the fact that there are approximately a squillion and three menswear blogs, the overwhelming majority of which feature precisely the same jacket over and over again. In case you were interested).

But whilst I’m not really au fait with the latest trends in pocket squares (if there can be such a thing as a trend in a pocket square – they’re square and they go in a pocket. How much can these things vary?), I like to think I’m observant enough to notice when something is widespread enough to have categorically become “a thing”.

One look that appears to have been adopted widely across the menswear board seemed to reach its zenith on Sunday night when almost all the male slebs at the BAFTA ceremony in London were sporting a chinful of the finest facial hair.

Now, I’m all for pictures of Gorgeous George floating around the ether of the internet – the more the merrier, quite frankly. But just because the delicious and delectable Mr Clooney can carry something off doesn’t mean the rest of mankind should try. Beyoncé would look phenomenal in one of those godawful striped, drop-waisted summer dress monstrosities that girls’ schools make their poor pupils suffer in the summer term: it doesn’t mean we should all start wearing ‘em.

But given the plethora of beardy pictures from Sunday’s ceremony, my opinions on an hirsute visage clearly aren’t enough to put the great and the good off wandering up the red carpet with a faceful of fuzz, looking for all the world like their housemate / stylist / significant other thought it would funny not to mention they could do with a quick shave (yes, I’m talking to you, whoever shares responsibility for National Treasure Stephen Fry: that was just scruffy), and with my lack of knowledge on all things male fashion-related, that’s probably no bad thing.

Although I’m not really sure the professionals are any more qualified. Because just yesterday, I received an email from TW, the arbiter of male style in Social Circle Blonde:

Subject: Slightly worrying

Is it slightly worrying that I’m starting to look to this for genuine wardrobe inspiration? [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

You heard it here first: male fashion – officially going to the dogs.

Love the beard! It's sensually earthy and masculine and sooooo sexy, IMO. My bf has a beard right now. It's gray, like G's and I love it!

I'm LOVING it! I've been living with a bearded man for 43 years. When he did shave it off once, when our eldest son was very young, our son was afraid to go near him. He sounded like his dad but he didn't look ANYTHING like him according to our son...it was hilarious at the time.

George looks delicious with that longer hair and beard...that's my story and I'm sticking to it! HA Basketball !

I'm in the minority. I do no like the beard at all. He looks like my brother plus I don't like how they feel. Embarassed

Also in the minority - don't like the beard very much. It seems he's going more into the aristocratic look instead of heart throb which is the look I fell in love with.

Beards were not my favorite until I saw George with one, now I love them on him. The one he has right now is terrific and so it his hair so silky. A bit prejudice because I love the way he looks at his worst better than anyone else at their best.

I'm going to have to go with Cindigirl on this one. I like the beard and I think he would look good with a sheet on his face, but I fell for the hunk on ER and Sisters. That said, I could be convinced otherwise if given the chance!
