Lately, we've seen an abundance of men rocking beards, from the streets to the stage, and even on the runway. Though it may seem as if a full, well-kempt beard is a new trend in men's style, the truth is that dapper dudes from Philly have been sporting their beards, with love, for years.

For some, a groomed beard represents an extension of their own refined sense of style. While for others, a striking, long beard has deeper, more spritual roots. In either case, there's no denying that there's something special about the "Philly beard."

We sat down with Kings Rule Together founder, Curran J, and seven other stylish Philly gents to chat about the "Philly beard" and its impact on men's fashion.

You can check out "The Bearded Bunch" video and visual gallery below. And, if you're proudly rocking a Philly beard of your own, post a photo on Instagram or Twitter with the tags #Philly360 and #PhillyBeard.
