Before hot hipster-esque models such as Rick “Fuckin;” Hall and Luke Ditella made the very big manly beard something of a fashion statement, there were just regular dudes with beards. Although we love admiring all of Rick’s and Luke’s photos via Instagram, and we can’t deny how damn sexy they are — the difference is — there’s dudes with beards and then there’s dudes with fancy fashion beards.
While in Prague for the Mystic Cup skateboarding competition (2006), we met this crazy bearded man below. As you can see he’s not a model, nor a hipster, and his untamed beard is probably something he’s been growing way before it became trendy. Stoned out of his mind, he even uses his beard as a cigarette holder.
And then below, we have the leader of the fashionable hipster beard movement: Rick Hall … we’re certainly not complaining .
And then there’s this … we can really go on-and-on-and-on … or you can just see more Rick pics here.
