When I first moved to Oregon, I couldn't decide whether Oregon was ahead of the trend with facial hair, or just WAY behind. I have never seen so many porn-staches and unruly crumb-catchers in my life. Well, it turns out, after many years of living here, the answer was neither. Oregon loves facial hair no matter the decade. Portland has hosted the "World Beard and Mustache Championship" for several years now, proving that "Beards are Big Here".
This fella, who definitely has a beard and may actually live in my neighborhood starred in a couple hilarious videos and represented a brand called "Respect the Beard (RTB)" and sold little wooden matchboxes that contained "Campfire Cologne". It's too bad that it looks like he's not making this stuff any more. What is campfire cologne? Just watch.
