THERE IS NOTHING WRONG ABOUT JON HAMM. Although I understand that this comes across as a particularly ardent statement, it’s pretty close to the truth. Additionally, I am aware that the previous post held Ryan Gosling in high regard but Jon Hamm is arguably also the quintessence of masculine beauty for the following reasons:
1.) No one looks as good as he does in a suit.
2.) His voice is as dark, sweet, and smooth as molasses. 
3.) As Don Draper, he exudes a perfect combination of old-time charm and complete and utter douchebaggery. 
4.) He has the magical ability to somehow make you ignore most of his (more like Don Draper’s) vices (i.e. smoking like chimney, drinking at 11:00 in the morning, spreading racism and male chauvinism like it’s nobody’s business, etc.).
5.) He has proven that not only is he adept at dramatic roles, but is actually quite hilarious.
6.) He can grow the darkest, thickest, and plushest beard on television.
p.s. Even though there are better pictures of Jon Hamm with a thicker beard, the smoldering look in his eyes in this one is too good to pass up…it makes you feel funny.

zoom *Warning: I am obsessed with Ryan Gosling, so there will be a lot of ~love (and creepiness, lbr) for him in this post!
Ryan Gosling is seriously the perfect man.  And exactly how does one get bestowed such a lofty honor?  Well, he’s a feminist, he rescues homeless animals, he is intelligent and articulate, he loves his mother, his surname means “baby goose” (Google them!  They’re adorable!!!), he is passionate and sensitive, he cares about crucial issues like the conflicts in the Congo and Darfur, he enjoys working with children, he’s an excellent actor (and dancer), he owns a Moroccan restaurant so I can only assume he’s a good cook, he has a fantastic sense of humor, he has impeccable style (he cannot NOT look like a GQMF), and he sings and plays various instruments in his band, Dead Man’s Bones, who are actually very good and I’m not just saying that because I think Ryan Gosling is the dreamiest man in existence.  Most of all, however, Ryan Gosling wears facial hair ridiculously well: his beard is thick, rich, and caramel-colored.  It grows lusciously and seemingly even; in fact, beards simply enhance Gosling’s beauty, imbibing his already flawless looks with more sheer masculinity and raw sexuality.
But, even after all that, I bet Ryan Gosling is a really good listener too.

Saba wanted me to write about ASkars, but I have decided instead to pay tribute to the most attractive werewolf of all time, Alcide Herveaux, portrayed by Joe Manganiello.  Although the cast of True Blood is ridiculously good-looking (I’m also enamored with Sam Trammell), Manganiello and his beard are simply magnificent, robust, and rugged—the actor wears the lumberjack/construction worker look very well.  His physique is impeccable, almost as if it were sculpted by Michelangelo’s nimble hands.  He leaves me so speechless.  He attended Carnegie Mellon so that must also mean he’s intelligent and hard-working (I mean, have you seen him?!).  To be honest, I think the only thing wrong with Manganiello is that he’s a Steelers fan.

zoom Deathly Hallows: Part 2 was amaaaaaazing. If you haven’t seen it yet, WHY THE HELL NOT?!?! That being said, I’ve never really been a part of the whole Ron Weasley bandwagon. Although he has aged well over the years, I was always a fan of the sinister, wizard-douchebag equivalents (e.g. Lucious Malfoy, the snatchers, etc.). HOWEVER, this bearded look that Ron had to don for the Gringotts scene is absolutely fantastic. As a personal opinion, I think Ron with a beard is a vast improvement.

zoom Here at hotguyswithbeards we don’t front with impartiality regarding the NBA Finals. We want Dallas to win. Period. Half of this may stem from a genuine desire to root for a Texas team, but really, we just want to see the Heat lose. Therefore, we’ve decided to highlight a certain Mavericks player with the most stunning beard the NBA has ever seen (exception: James Harden). Tyson Chandler is a statuesque, virile force on the court and his beard just embodies the pure tenacity and perseverance that Chandler and the Mavs have displayed during this series. Towering over seven feet, Chandler is a mighty presence and we appreciate not only his contribution to the team, but that magnificent facial hair as well.

James Marsden certainly has the makings of a very attractive man: beautiful aqua eyes, chiseled cheekbones, a great head of hair, etc. However, for some reason these factors are taken to an entirely new level with the addition of a beard. Although James Marsden has never been required to rock the bearded look for a role, to my knowledge at least, he looks even more incredible with facial hair.
