Ready for the third installment of the 2016 costumes for guys with beards? We thought you might be.
There Can Only Beard One
To be Sean Connery from Highlander, it’ll takes a well manicured beard (a Van Dyke or an Imperial with a soul patch should do nicely), a well tailored period costume, and an inexplicable Irish brogue despite playing a Spaniard. Oh, and one giant fake pearl earring. Bonus points for peacock feathers. Add a couple of swords to really take it home, and if anyone gives you a hard time, remind them, "there can be only one!"
The White Knight
Remember that douchebag from Die Hard, Harry Ellis? The one who wants to move in on McClane’s wife? If you have a gray business suit, a little flour in your beard (remember, he does blow), you can walk around the party calling people “bubby” and saying things like, “sprechen sie Talk?,” and generally acting like a sleazeball. If you’re going with a balding friend, have him go barefoot with a tanktop, and tape a toy pistol to his back. He may get to be McClane, but at least you’ll have shoes on. Make sure you wash your beard and get the flour out when you're done.
Nobody Puts Beardo In a Corner
Alright, that’s the wrong movie, but it’s the right actor. To pull off Bodhi from Point Break you can probably find a decent surfer wig unless you already have the locks. To make this work, in addition to the hair, you’ll need the following:
- a cheap Reagan mask to carry around (maybe walk in with the mask and pull it off to reveal the mullet)
- a tuxedo with the shirt and jacket open to reveal ...
- a tank top or a wet suit underneath.
Since this is another one for the light scruff, you should probably be using Beard Saver to keep the itch at bay.

Three times a year the Romans — and not just the ones in Rome, but in cities all over the region — would roll back a stone opening a hole to the underworld. And what would they do? Dump food in there. You know, for the dead.Today would have been one of those days. October 5 [...]
With presidential politics in the air, let's open this up with an oldie but a goodie: have you ever seen a bearded Bill Clinton?The potential future First Fella was all hippied out long before he became president. It's a shame he didn't bring it back in retirement, at least. He actually kind of looks like Grizzly [...]

We wondered what classic Hollywood stars might have looked like with beards, so we mocked them up ourselves.Cary Grant. Mr. Sophistication. The kind of guy who wouldn't start a day without a little time under a straight razor. We can see why with all that frizz. If we'd been around in his day, we could [...]
We chose the number seven because of the GoT's seven gods, but you won't find a Mother in this list. It's seven guys who stand as living proof that a beard always — ALWAYS — makes a man look better than a shaved face. (Don't let beard itch keep you from finding out for yourself!)Let's start [...]
The beard, in summer, defends the face from the burning rays of the sun. — Pierio Valeriano Bolzani (1477–1558), Pro sacerdotum barbis The title of that work translates as, In Favor of the Beards of the Priests. It was written at a time when the idea was controversial, and not because Big Razor had an investment to [...]
