Socks worn with permission

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that Monday 11th April marks the official opening of the 2016 Beards, Shorts and Sandals season

The campaigners say that temperatures are rising on average across the UK as Spring advances and this is the key indicator for the official opening of the season

The opening of the season means that official Spring beard growth is underway ready for the traditional custom of beard waggling on May Day.

Shorts and sandals may be worn all day until 8pm at the discretion of the wearer.

The campaigners say that it is expected that the image of organic beard, shorts and sandals will be one of the key male fashions of 2016 not just in Hackney and Dalston but across large parts of the UK as fashions change and develop.

The official season 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 We are pleased to announce the official opening of the 2016 Beard, Shorts and Sandals season but in doing so would underline that this is a permissive not a compulsory matter. In particular if beards and shorts and sandals are worn in busy City streets care should be taken to have robust sandals or permission for sock wearing may be given.
