PHOTOS: Scruffy Men With Muttonchops Make Us Feel All Tingly Inside

We’ve been all about the scruff lately. There’s nothing sexier or more masculine than a beard and moustache. But there’s one piece of facial hair we feel is too often overlooked: Muttonchops.

Not quite sideburns and not quite beards, muttonchops are their own unique thing, sported by everyone from Martin Van Buren to John Lennon to Hugh Jackman (AKA Wolverine).

You don’t see them as often these days, probably because they’re not easy to maintain. Like an exotic topiary tree, they require regular trimming and sculpting. Perhaps that’s why we admire them so much?

Scroll down to see some of our favorite pics of men sporting sexy muttonchops.

    I love hairy, scruffy guys. More of this please.

    But that being said, some of these guys DON’T have muttonchops.

  • Liam

    Hot! Hairy/scruffy is always a plus.

    i will NEVER understand the attractiveness of a beard. i like my man to keep himself shaved. i HATE how it feels >.<.

    now i will admit i am OCCASIONALLY attracted to chest hair but facial hair ewwwww no.

  • truckproductions

    love me some scruffy mens but these guys are not attractive.. they look like the homeless that populate golden gate park.. barf

    @RainboWarrioR: To each his own and thank God for that. I generally don’t like men WITHOUT some facial hair and full beards suit me fine. I even like Taliban like beards. But some men look fine cleanly shaved too.
    Not all of us can grow full beards. At this point in my life, I have a moustache and goatee — only some whiskers on the cheeks.

  • jckfmsincty

    @truckproductions: It sounds like homeless people literally make you sick.

  • charwegl

    I like beards, just not these.

  • SpunkyBunks

    I like good looking masculine guys with facial hair. Not these skinny ugly hipster types. You can keep them.

  • viveutvivas

    Some are hot, but they don’t all have muttonchops.

    It’s okay if you don’t like facial hair but the prejudicial way some posters here state it is a bit over the line.

  • HirsuteOne

    Of course, a post about scruff brings out all the whiny complaints from the nellie girl scouts and their Hello Kitty smart phones.

  • viveutvivas

    @HirsuteOne, LOL.

  • Pete

    Most of those guys only prove that facial hair is a Godsend to the homely. All beardos look the same.

    It’s a crime to hide a handsome face.
