VIDEO: 8 Bearded Philly Men on Why It’s Awesome to Not Shave

Some of the city's most dapper guys on beards, men's style, and why facial hair is making a major comeback.

For those who needlessly bash our city’s sweats-and-jersey style legacy, let me direct you to the video above. Produced by Visit Philadelphia and Philly 360°, the quick segment features eight of the most outrageously stylish guys in the city, including Curran J, founder of lifestyle brand Kings Rule Together; Erik Honesty, owner of Cultured Couture Vintage in Old City; jazz-funk composer Jamaaladeen Tacuma, and more. 

Please watch, and then discuss amongst yourselves the following points: that ladybug blazer and those glasses on Tacuma; that moto jacket on Search + Rescue Squad’s Tawfeeq Gaines (who says he’s never shaved in his entire life); and finally, those gold round-frame glasses on Honesty*.

*Dear Erik: Can I please borrow these until maybe the end of time? Thanks.
