Oh, the soul patch. Is it possible that such a tiny swatch of scruffed up chin floss indicates volumes about one's personality, character, and aesthetic values?
The answer is a resounding Y-E-S. The soul patch, possessed by those dudes who are convinced of their smoothness, savvy, and, indeed, soul, is in our opinion, noncommittal (in addition to being straight up lameee)--why keep a tiny dot of unshaved nothingness? The soul patch is related to, but no way as ballsy as the maintenance and upkeep of the goatee (another dealbreaker, natch). Either way, you end up looking like a tragic aging boy band reject (see AJ and Kevin above. . .cannot believe BSB had TWO soul patches running their steez!!!), and, quite honestly, no one wants to look like that.
