2016 ‘BEARDS, SHORTS & SANDALS’ PRE-SEASON OFFICIALLY UNDERWAY

shorts

NB: socks only with BLF agreement

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the 2016 Pre-Season for Beards, Shorts and Sandals is set to get its best airing yet on Good Friday  with temperatures set to rise well into double figures in some parts of the UK.

The pre-season means that official Spring beard growth is underway and that shorts and sandals may be worn after midday until 6pm at the discretion of the wearer.

The campaigners say that it is expected that once again the image of organic beard, shorts and sandals will be one of the key male fashions of 2016

The official season is expected to start during April- depending on weather conditions- and traditionally runs until August 31st. During that period the wearing of shorts and sandals- preferably without socks unless special dispensation is given-is permitted for BLF supporters.

The BLF says that ‘beards, shorts and sandals’ is often a stereotype deployed by pogonophobes and so the wearing of shorts and sandals by the hirsute is best done within an agreed and defendable framework.

BLF Organiser Keith Flett said Easter is not always the best time for the beard, shorts and sandals pre-season but Good Friday looks like a chance for an early flaunting of the follicles and the knees

The vote for the Beard of Spring 2016 ends at 6pm on 25th March
