OK, OK so he’s northern Irish - but look at him, we couldn’t not include him. Jamie’s beard serves to draw attention to his cheekbones which look like they’ve been sculpted by the ACTUAL HANDS of God himself.

Gary displays what’s officially* regarded as just the right amount of beard needed to cause a rash after a make out session.

*Definitely not official.

He’s also indesputibly hotter with facial hair…

So growing a full beard should probably be on his ‘To do’ list.

Don’t judge.

That beard trended on Twitter.

8. David Gandy.

Just when you thought Becks was the perfect specimen of mankind, he goes and grows a beard which defies the laws of human sexiness.

Okay, so technically he’s Irish-German, but we’re counting him in the round-up. The quiffed hair and the shades and the tux and the beard. IT’S ALL TOO MUCH.
