To get some outside perspective I asked a sociologist how he feels about chin-straps. His reply “Only those with beards because of religious obligations get the pass”. The origin of the chin-strap facial hairstyle is pretty obvious if you have ever seen a 13 year old kid going through puberty. It is impossible for their side burns to grow in thick, so these greasy ,thin, face pubes start to cover the surface. Then a couple whiskers emerge on the chin. They are  a pack of cigarettes away from being the coolest kid still riding the school bus. I personally love the guys who have a spot on their face where hair doesn’t grow as well so there is a gap in the strap. Fat kids with blubber necks have the hair etched up real thin on their jaw line,but because of their sheer mass, it looks like they are about 6 inches too high. There is an obvious reason why Santa goes with the full beard, lardos. In terms of chin-straps it has always amazed that the individual who spends so much time grooming, wouldn’t have a better sense of what looks good. If you care that much about your appearance, wouldn’t you care to make it a good appearance? Just goes to show you that time spent in front of the mirror getting ready does not mean you’re looking good. First off, this chin-strap is way too thick and among the grossest colors. It  would be better suited on an Amish guy. He is a mustache away from being the guy on the paper towel ads. However there is a golden lining, he is smiling and that is always Flashion. Usually, if you have a chin-strap, you always have an angry face, the two go hand and hand. Mostly because you’re angry that you spend so much time on your facial hair and can’t give mustache rides. Keep smiling guy, it’s infectious.

P.S. Thanks to the sociologist who wants to be credited as LaserTurboWolf88. Credible source obviously.
