2nd May


The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that the start of the 2017 Season for Beards, Shorts and Sandals is set for Friday May 5th as after a cool period average temperatures are now consistently warm enough for the main season to start

Official Spring beard growth is now underway and 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 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 after disputes in recent years we are asking supporters views on whether socks are acceptable with the beard, shorts and sandals. This is the style modelled by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn but some regard it as insufficiently organic
