Fascinating...a lot of thought went into that chart.

The YR position on facial hair is well-known but, just curious, what's the official view on "stubble"? I could see another, less elaborate chart for this, including say the one-day George Clooney to the four-day Miami Vice, with a lot of other options and grades in between (and beyond).

I'm sincerely interested...at what point does an acceptable (and even desirable?) amount of stubble become absolutely verboten facial hair?

That's a hard question. I'd like to enlist Justin Timberlake as a visual aid. As the former boy band star has taught us sexy stubble, ex: http://media.photobucket.com/image/justin%20timberlake/stranger2003/justin-timberlake-rankin.jpg

can quickly turn into full on facial hair, ex: http://live.drjays.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/01-justin-timberlake-400a032707.jpg

My distinction would thus lie somewhere in the middle of those two pictures. Perhaps a distance test could prove helpful -- if the stubble is visible from a distance of say 25 feet then it is full on facial hair.
