Buck is The Man. No, I mean literally, Buck is The Man. He puts both the Buck and the Burley in Buck’s Burley. He’s the guy behind the guys, the wizard behind the curtain He’s a pioneer. A trailblazer and a guy with vision like the Hubble telescope. He saw a distant need for products that allowed a man to not just feel like a man, but also to look and smell like a man who knows the importance of caring about how he looks and smells. So, Buck’s Burley? Darn right he is. He’s a guy who can simply shrug off a compound fracture and go right on, okay, rollerblading. But let’s just focus on the fact that he shrugged off a compound fracture, okay? Or ask him about the time he car swapped on the highway with the armed Nigerian motorcade—you can bet he wasn’t rollerblading then. And you can also bet he looked fabulous doing every bit of it. He created the products that ensured he would—products that provide control without crustiness, moisture without greasiness, and manly scent without femininity. You know the old saying, if you want something done right, sometimes you’ve simply got to do it yourself. And that’s just what Buck did. So go ahead and thank him and see what he’s formulating now on his Instagram page at (whatever it is).
Simply sporting a healthy crop of facial hair is a big step in the right direction, but by itself, it’s not enough to make someone a true Burley man. There’s an attitude that goes into it—and if your facial hair itself should happen to convey that attitude on its own, well then bully for you. And that’s the deal with our buddy Jon. Look, if you’re going to adorn your face with an olde tyme curly ‘stache like Jon’s, you’ve either just tied a damsel to the train tracks for not paying the rent, or you’re a guy who’s not afraid to let his facial hair do some of his talking. Exactly the type of coolly confident guy we like to call a Burley man. Add to his classic ‘stache the thick growth of beard hanging off his jaw and you can see that Jon has Burley man written all over his face. He’s a guy who puts the same care and fine-tuning into his facial hair that he puts into his motorcycle—who appreciates quality, authenticity and yes, craftsmanship. Who demands hold without stiffness, conditioning without greasiness and a manly scent without, you know, girliness. See what else is curling Jon’s ‘stache these days on his social accounts
Hey, if every guy is Burley in his own way, what it is it about our pal Tony here? Is it that solid gaze and those chiseled features? Oh sure, he’ll tell you scar stories like an old fishing captain, and heroism tales like he was Daniel Boone, but that’s because he’s a writer. Our writer. This writer, in fact. Which means he could say anything, build himself a legend as Burley as anyone and who’s to question it, his high school English teacher? Well, maybe actually. But just being a “pen-mightier-than-the-sword” type of Burley Man doesn’t mean Tony’s manliest feat to date has been hitting Control, Alt, and Delete at the same time. Ask him about the night he was chased by Russian police in the city of Kiev, or spending a half hour landing a northern pike three quarters his size. You think a guy who was a decent pair of running shoes away from life in a Russian gulag, who now spends his days with those same feet up on his desk writing stuff like this on his laptop is going to skimp on his hair care products? Well, yeah, actually he’s exactly the type of guy to do that. But now that he’s gone Burley that’s all changed, and he’s never going back. Buck’s Burley has him looking good (on a relative scale), smelling good and feeling good about how he looks and smells. And that’s about all a guy who uses words for his fists can ask for.
Okay, for legal purposes, we need to say this right up front: You don’t want to mess around with Chad. Oh sure, there’s that sweet face and the kind smile, but behind this façade lies the heart of a do-or-die-prison-fight-level kind of tough guy, the likes of whom we’re just happy to be on their good side. And we plan on staying there. You see, as Buck’s Burley’s official staff photographer, and apparently our “muscle” should we ever need it, Chad is the kind of guy everyone wants on their team. Look, anyone who can make us look this good with his camera one day, and turn an ornery inmate into a sorry pile of prison jello the next is our kind of guy. Seriously, this is a man who can actually say, “I can’t count how many prison fights I’ve been in,” and mean it. And no, it’s not a problem with his counting skills, it’s a problem with his old job requirements. Now if that’s not a Burley Man, we don’t know what one is. But trust us, we know what one is. I mean, who goes from messing dudes up behind bars, to making other dudes look good in front of his camera without missing a beat? A true Burley Man’s Burley Man, that’s who. So let’s all be on our good behavior and give Chad the respect he deserves or we’re all getting put on lockdown.
