No Reason IS a Reason

"Men's Wearhouse fires founder George Zimmer; no reason given" read the boldfaced and large fonted LA Times headline... and my heart sank.

As you may know, George Zimmer is the highly recognizable man behind the comforting voice telling men all over the US that he guarantees they will like the way they look... the soft, raspy, paternal even, voice engulfs you as the beard on George's face engulfs his chin... and you believed him. Besides, you never quite knew if he moonlighted as the most interesting man in the world, though you suspected that he probably was.

We don't know why the company severed ties with George, nor do we know if Mr. Zimmer deserved what was coming to him... we just hope that this is not another example in pogonophobia in the corporate world, which we will not accept nor ever lay down our arms against.

There really is just one thing Men's Warehouse can do to prove to us this is not the case... name a replacement with an even bigger, bushier, longer and uncut beard.

So, members of the Men's Warehouse board, the move is yours... #proveit

My name is Adil Safir and although this my first visit to this site as a bearded reader i hear the plight of the our people when i google defined the word pogonophobia and recognised it in my life experiences.

As a trainee Savile Row tailor i feel the proper way to avenge George Zimmer is to study tailoring to a degree whereby i can teach others, then tell students to use beard centimetres instead of inches, now as most people use 2.5cm as a conversion for 1 inch, 1inch would equal 5 million (or m for practicalities sake). I believe this will be do able. I also believe that it would be good company policy to have beards as a uniform, as no religious sect would be against it either, further uniting us as men and fellow human beings.

His morning breath has notes of saffron and a hint of lilac.
