I know in alot of Europe and Turkey, most of the men shave once a week...In Turkey they go to the barber once a week for their shave....Looks like a throw-back to the Miami Vice look....Remember the "Miami Device ?
THE MIAMI DEVICE
Back in 1986, if you were male and suffered from stubble envy -- a disturbance characterized by a desire to have an always budding beard like TV star Don Johnson -- you may have wanted to pick up an electric razor that went on the market that spring, costing only $29.95 and leaving you with a 5 o'clock shadow 24 hours a day.
It was called the Stubble Device. The Wahl Clipper Corp. of Sterling, Ill. made it expressly to capitalize on the sandpaper-chin look popularized by the Miami Vice sleuth. Rather than suffer the embarrassment of a clean shave, you could keep your beard fashionably semi-trimmed with the machine's handy one-to-five-day growth settings. The razor was originally called The Miami Device. But the company feared a trademark infringement lawsuit by the show's producers
To think the genius inspired Micro-matic from the OP had to share America's faces with the Miami Device.....just unbelievable....
Loved the show..still do. I never wanted that look though. It was clean shave or grow something out.
Before I discovered blade shaving I seriously considered using it once a week just so as not to have a beard. Maybe one of these guys is under the same shaving "strike" that I almost had . Could be but he still needs to reevaluate his appearance. He really looks like a bum, except I've seen bums that looked better. (sorry bums, I didn't mean to drag you down!) :-)
Maybe we need to send him a TOST starter kit as a hint!!!
Only when they are hanging out in public....
