2017 BEARD, SHORTS & SANDALS SEASON SUSPENDED DUE TO POOR WEATHER

The Beard Liberation Front, the informal network of beard wearers, has said that it has taken the unusual step of temporarily suspending the 2017 Beard, Shorts and Sandals season due to inclement weather.

On 9th August it rained for much of the day in Southern and Eastern England making it unsuitable to wear shorts and sandals with the beard. Elsewhere while it was dry temperatures were not high enough to sustain the traditional summer wear.

The campaigners say that the image of organic beard, shorts and sandals is one of the key male fashions of 2017 but does depend on weather.

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 will keep the situation under review and hope to reinstate the 2017 season in the next few days but a lot does depend on the August weather. Exposing the beard and bare knees to rain and wind is not a great idea.
