My old OC, a certain Major J. Orde, used to have hairy cheeks, kinda under his eyes. He just shaved straight down from his sideburns and let the rest grow. I thought it rather suited him, but when I tried it, it made me look like a monkey.
A former Chief of Navy here had similar. He (and they) were known to all & sundry as 'Old Bugger Handles.'

So many people, and yes, mostly female people, have said that they like my beard, that I am keeping it.

White ones are ok-ish "salt 'n pepper just looks scruffy...even worse when the latter is mainly long stubble, -the tramp-look as epitomised by one J Corbyn.

Needed a trimmer as the old one has died. Boots ! At eye level, trimmers from £25 to £100 (yes !) Despite creaking knees, folded myself down to floor level. On bottom shelf, Boots own model, £14, more importantly than price is small and lightweight. Works, also, now am less attractive to Diane Abbott.

Not sure how many mm the hair above the upper lip should be trimmed back. 1mm seems fine but when I purse my lips - for example after reading one of K&C's posts - I can feel the ends of the individual hairs. 3mm is too much. Is there an Officer's Mess standard ?
