Fashion’s Night Out is upon us, and in a mere eight hours, some of menswear’s best brands are going to unleash all manner of silliness upon us.

We’ll have a more detailed report tomorrow morning (hangover permitting), but we wanted to single out two noteworthy events. First, Warby Parker is continuing their Buddy Holly homage with a tribute show from Justin Townes Earle. Second, David Coggins is participating in something called “Whisker Wars” with Sloane Crosley and, somewhat confusingly, Whoopi Goldberg.

Naturally, we’re a bit curious.

Evidently there’s been a fierce debate raging over the relative merits of a beard, and the interest of heading off fisticuffs, Bergdorf Goodman has elected to settle the matter in a public forum at the mens’ shop, starting at 7:30.

The above picture is an artist’s rendering of what it will look like, if you squint and imagine Mr. Coggins as the Oscar-winning star of Hook.
