Watching the red-carpet lineup at the ESPYs was enough to get a committed girl in trouble (drooling usually doesn’t go over well with bae). What’s more, brothers hit that carpet groomed as though they were out here to give their ladies competition in the “best red-carpet beauty” category. But it was the fellas with beards who had us double tapping our screens (and realizing that not every double tap is a like, but should be).

Whether they had full lustrous beards or smaller low-cut facial hair, they looked polished, handsome and debonair. For anyone getting tired of hearing that someone was “looking like a whole snack,” this display of beautiful Blackness is enough to make you start using the phrase yourself.
