Captain America vs. Iron Man: Who Wins the Fashion Civil War? - Vogue

Are you Team Captain America or Team Iron Man?

Fans can and will debate whether Steve Rogers or Tony Stark are right about the Sokovia Accords, but the real battle may be a sartorial one.

Most white collar work still carries a strict prohibition on male facial hair, which begs the question – are you a beardist?Beardism, (beer-diz-um,) noun. Hatred and intolerance of beards, and those who sport them.“I don’t know if women are more attracted to men with beards, but the good women sure are,” said Thomas Maurice Smith, co-founder of the Gem City Gentlemen of the Gilded Beard as well...

KENNESAW, Ga. —With his long, scruffy beard, chunky silver rings and bandanna headband, the owner and proprietor of Wildman's Civil War Surplus and Herb Shop looks from a distance like a typical aging hippie.But if the twin.45s strapped to Dent Myers' belt aren't indication enough that he's no New Age apothecary, a stroll through Wildman's store offers other clues.To get to the packets of more than 200 herbal remedies the 76-year-old says he prepares himself, you have to walk by a dingy display case full of KKK daggers and Civil War bullets and past the rack of white-power novels and Johnny Rebel CDs, featuring classics such as "Nigger Hatin' Me," "Nigger Nigger, Who Likes a Nigger," "Move...
