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.
