Woman dresses as man, draws on beard in robbery COTTONDALE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say a woman who dressed like a man and drew a beard on her face has robbed an Alabama bank. Police say the suspect robbed the Cottondale branch of the Bank of Tuscaloosa and she may have been involved in another bank heist earlier this month. Witnesses told officers she had a “drawn on” beard when she entered the bank. Police say she told tellers she had a bomb and demanded money after placing a device on a counter. She took an undisclosed amount of money and then fled the scene. The FBI and local police are investigating.  

Grizzly Andrew: Duke grows grand old beard during 12-day wilderness trek For a man who enjoys a pampered  jetset lifestyle, Prince Andrew seems remarkably comfortable in the wild. In fact, with his Grizzly Adams beard he looks quite the backwoodsman during a boys’ own canoeing expedition in Canada. While aides at home negotiated some choppy waters by revealing he was stepping down from his controversial post as a UK trade ambassador, Andrew was tackling the rapids of the Horton River inside the Arctic Circle.

The world of international facial hair contests is a highly competitive one with participants taking it all very seriously. So Burke Kenny, of Olympia in Washington state, is rightly proud of winning the coveted title of world’s best ‘full beard with styled moustache.’ The 26-year-old has just returned from the World Beard and Moustache Championships in Trondheim, Norway.

Viberg for Iron Heart Scout Boot: Look Rugged but be as Soft as a Bunny

by Accidental Bear

You know the type of guy that carries around his skate board but never actually rides it? These rugged boots are motorcycles specialties, but you never have to touch a motorcycle to pull off the rugged look. I suggest you get a helmet and carry it around as an accessory to theses boots. I will never tell. Canada’s Viberg works a special edition boot for Japan’s Iron Heart company. This Scout boot comes wrapped with a 21oz and a buffalo leather wrapped vamp. Available now from the Ironheart UK online shop.

Levi does the body good. Good to the last drop

Levi’s Made & Crafted was founded on a simple premise – “Modern items based on the principles of good design.” In that mission, the Levi’s DNA forms a backbone for forward thinking approaches to classic garments and accessories, all of which privileges the right fabrics and the correct manufacturing. For Autumn 2011 the line, now in its second full season, has expanded to include knits, shirting, and a special capsule collection of “Made in the USA” denim. The looks are contemporary and fresh, but with a decidedly familiar feel; the balance of new and old in the pieces struck admirably. We caught up with the Amsterdam based Made & Crafted design team to chat about the Autumn 2011 collection and to see what the future holds for the line. Our discussion, and some fine garments, after the jump. (Selectism)
