    The mustache area can be made more difficult if you use a motorcycle and asphalt roadway to make unwanted modifications to one side.

    I've been sporting friendly mutton chops for over ten years now, but go for a full clean shave once in a while.

    I noticed that the less real estate I shave, the longer my shaves take. Funny how that works.

    Sorry to jump in so late, but wait a damn minute! Reading this thread I just realized that I've been taking shaving advice from lots of people with significant unshaved facial hair

    I'm appalled, that to you guys BBS means for 35-60% of your face, as Rezdog said early in the thread, "high grading the easy parts"

    There is a head shaving section....

    Maybe there should be a chin section and upper lip section?

    I know your tongue is firmly in your cheek, as it should be when shaving around your mouth.

    Seriously though,it takes me as much or more time and attention to sculpt my beard with a straight as it would to shave my entire face. The tough to shave bits on my neck below the jaw line and around my Adam’s apple provide the same issues as for you guys with totally bare faces. Granted, I don’t worry about under my nose and around my lips, but it takes me some time to get the line right from under my ear to my mouth.

    Besides, I really enjoy my straight razor shaves and I am terrified to find out what I look like under my beard. My cousin shaved his off once and his wife said he looked like his mother and insisted he grow it back immediately.

    I dunno, I had a goatee, and could literally get a complete scuttle BBS shave in about 7 minutes, nothing to it.

    Add in the upper lip, the entire chin area, having to "join" the neck under the chin, with the chin area, so it's smooth from under your chin and onto your face....not easy.

    Try it for a couple of weeks, frankly, I now see why there are so many DE/SE guys, it's a steep learning curve if you're clean shaven.

    Glad I did it, still going strong, wife has mentioned she likes the goat, but not going back as of yet.

    You're right guys...I was teasing, but I am surprised to see so many of you have (or have had) some significant facial hair. I used to joke that most of the pics of my ancestors the men had full beards, and I wondered if it was because SRs (or a barber shave which they probably couldn't afford) were the only option.

    There's also some jealously mixed in because while there was a time I could grow a beard, my mustache area has always been very "sparse". Now if I grow a beard, it's all white, and only half of my head has gone gray/white, so it makes it look like I'm dyeing my hair, which I'm not.

    I enjoy the humor here as much as the advice and support!
