Sir: Terence Blacker's sneer against beards ("Sorry, I just don't like beardies", 23 March) lists various odd reasons why men grow beards, but omits the commonest. I discipline myself to do only what is either necessary or fun. Shaving therefore ceased when I escaped from the sneers of my colleagues in industry and became an academic.
