If there's one thing that makes me ashamed I'm a man, it's when guys "grow" a chinstrap beard and think they're the cat's ass. I can't figure out the thought process that goes through someone's head when they look in the mirror and think "Okay, I know what would make me look AMAZING and not like a tool, a chinstrap!"
I've been told that some guys do it because they think it'll make their jawline look more square, or that they can't grow a full beard out. While I admittedly can't grow a full, Al Borland-style beard myself, I've never thought a suitable alternative was to have a thin line of crap across the bottom of my face. Does anyone actually find it attractive?
Seeing what would be an otherwise attractive guy with a chinstrap on is infinitely more tragic than, say, seeing a good-looking homeless guy.
If you're bored with a razor in the bathroom, PLEASE, instead shave a smiley face in your chest hair or something... Friends don't let friends wear a chinstrap.
