14th April


NB: socks only with BLF agreement

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the start of the 2017 Pre-Season for Beards, Shorts and Sandals is set to continue for at least another week as the average temperature is not consistently warm enough for the main season to start

The pre-season means that official Spring beard growth is underway and that shorts and sandals may be worn after midday until 8pm 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 later in 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 if beard wearers are sporting shorts and sandals this Easter we urge them to take care out there

The vote for the Beard of Spring 2017 closes on April 15th
