Diaspora Style: Brooklyn's Black and Bearded Men

A gallery of some of the men with standout beards who we've spotted across Brooklyn.

DIASPORA—Who doesn't love a good beard?


Ok, so maybe they're not for everyone, but none can deny the splendor of well-groomed facial hair. Beards are often a key accessory for men looking to tie their look together with an effortless, organic edge. If you can't tell by now—we're fans.

No matter how a beard is worn: minimal, bushy, tapered—or maybe even braided—what matters most is owning it. We've spotted several men around the city who are doing just that.

Below, we give you a gallery of some of the standout beards we've spotted on some of our recent outings, for your viewing pleasure.
