The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the 2016 Beards, Shorts and Sandals season is set to reach its first peak on Sunday with temperatures well into the twenties centigrade in some parts of the UK.

Shorts and sandals may be worn all day until 8pm at the discretion of the wearer, but the campaigners say that those not wearing socks and shorts not below the knee need to protect their legs against the sun.

In addition if the beard has prolonged exposure to the sun the hairs need to be moistened from time to time, either with water or depending on preference, in a glass of real ale or craft beer.

The sun is nearly as strong at this time of year as in high summer.

The campaigners say that indications are that the image of organic beard, shorts and sandals is becoming one of the key male fashions of 2016 not just in Shoreditch 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 expect Sunday to be the first peak of the Beard, Shorts and Sandals season. But participants do need to take care and follow BLF guidelines.
