What is their official explanation for not allowing beards?

    We had black brothers who had shaved heads and nothing was said.

    As soon as a white brother decided to shave his head then there was some kind of problem.

    I suppose they associated it with the skin head movement.

    When I was studying I was told it was because news readers didn't have beards. 😮

    I don't know the official reason, but I often reflect on how people think. One example is beards, they have become so modern, suddenly so many people have them. Now personally I don't think they are the most hygienic, but I think the report we had on the news recently that they can contain more germs than the average toilet was a tad off.

    Anyway I remember a convention talk, given by a member of the governing body, and thinking hasn't he got anything better to talk about than designer stable.
