Mind Your Clothes

This is actually about how to choose the right clothes to be paired with your beard. If you have picked a particular beard style, you have to make sure that you wear clothes that will look perfect when matched with your beard. On the other hand, if you plan to wear a certain type of apparel in a particular event that you want to attend, you have to be ready to apply a specific style to your beard. Pair wrong apparel with your beard and you will look weird: your head will look enormously large, your neck will disappear, etc.

There are some important things to mind when you choose the right suit when you are bearded. The closest part of the apparel to your beard is the collar, so make sure that you choose the right suit with the right collar. Wearing a long point collar, especially if you have full and lush beard, is recommended to ensure that the collar will be visible and not be obscured by the beard. Collars that are mostly hidden behind the beard, such as round and cutaway, must be avoided.

Normally attached to the collar is a tie. With full beard hanging on your chin, you actually already have a natural tie, so if you are not required to wear a tie, you’d better take off your tie. If you are going to attend a formal event in which a tie is required, be sure to wear plain tie that doesn’t look too bold.
