Beardlymen.com is a site dedicated to men and the pursuit of the perfect beard. Here at beardlymen.com we take bearding seriously. Just like in ancient Greece, we view beards as the ultimate sign of virility. In a world flooded with girly men, we the bearded, stand tall against the idea that a mans beard must be shaven in order to conform to modern society. It's time we come together to celebrate what makes us Men. Okay, okay, we are really here just to have a good time. We have cool stuff like beard products (oils, beard combs, etc.), information, and a beard blog. We want to provide you with everything you need when it comes to beard products. We are still very new so we really value your feedback! Also, we are constantly adding new information and products so be sure to check back with us regularly.

Thanks again for taking the time to stop in and please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for our site! Beard on!
Since the dawn of man there has been the beard. Unfortunately for us the beard is no longer a sign of manhood. In ancient Egypt beards were so highly regarded that kings would often wear fake beards known as a Postiche, which was meant to represent sovereignty. In Greece, the Spartans would shave off the beards of cowards as a form of punishment. The Celts and Germanic tribes saw it as a sign of dishonor if a man could not, or did not grow facial hair and they were often seen with full beards and long hair. Up until 1984 it was still authorized for seaman in the Navy to grow beards. During the Civil War one would be pressed to find a man who did not have facial hair. Even today, many special forces operators dawn "combat beards" while deployed in-theatre. Unfortunately society has changed and in many places, especially the business world, beards are not always acceptable.
We wanted to create a fun site for men with beards! We offer a variety of products and basic grooming information on facial hair. The moustache and goatee have become mainstream but the beard has remained in the shadows; our goal is to change that! Okay okay maybe we can't completely change the mind of society but we can certainly do our part to support those who challenge the idea that having a beard somehow makes a man less employable, hygienic, or homeless!
