Another L Magazine staffer, Mike Conklin, has had a beard since 2001. Before the recession even happened! "I've shaved it off only one time since, and I so hated the way it looked that I basically refused to leave my apartment until it grew back," he said. Which makes a lot of sense. Once you commit to a beard, getting rid of it is a pretty drastic thing to do to your face.
