Is current beard trend due to cost of razors?

Published 04/05/2016

There are regular investigations and reports into the price of essentials by consumer groups; fresh fruit, milk and energy.

I patiently await the investigation and report on the extortionate cost of razor blades. These essential items - for most of the males - are now so expensive they're in packets fitted with security tags.

Some packs promise £17 off RRP - and still cost £25. For a razor blade?

Is this, perhaps, the real reason behind the current fashion among males to sport full beards?
