The Product:

Whether you’re the beardy sort, yourself, or merely a pogonophile, you'd look dashing in a Great Beards of Science Tee Shirt.

Back in the day, men not only had beards, they had whiskers, muttonchops, and great billowing tufts in the form of spikes, spades, rhomboids, or villainous twirls. (And let’s give a shout out to those ground-breaking bearded ladies!)

Yes, a hirsute individual could sport a veritable arboretum of facial hair, and scientists were among the most flamboyant and fashionable of the lot.

Now that we’ve witnessed the resurgence of the mustache (“the training wheels of facial hair”), the beard is the phenotype whose time has come (back)!

This Great Beards of Science Tee features many scientists who could rock a beard. Hurrah for those hipsters of wisdom!

Cognitive Surplus is owned and run by Kristen and Geoff Zephyrus. (Kristen is the science-nerd, Geoff does the designing).

"We are fascinated by and curious about the science in the world around us. We love everything from physics jokes to the exquisite beauty of early scientific etchings and illustrations. We’re inspired by a sense of wonder for our universe and a desire to look closer. Everything from gazing up at the night sky to the way magnets work is both intriguing and a little magical, and we hope that we’re able to share some of our excitement through our designs."
