Fashion Check: Liev's Chops -- Well Done or Overcooked?

Nothing says Civil War reenactor or "I'm starring in a period piece" like good old muttonchops. On men, that is. For women, a busty decolletage would be the equivalent. For Liev Schreiber, pictured below with the lovely Naomi Watts, the chops are perhaps an unfortunate side effect of his role as Sabretooth in the currently filming "X-Men Origins: Wolverine."

Sabretooth is apparently possessed of a superhuman ability to heal from all wounds and "acute senses of sight, hearing, smell, and taste." Sabretooth's blindspot, it would seem, is fashion sense. Rule of thumb: facial hair should not cover more than 40 percent of one's face. It may become an obstacle, rendering other fashion missteps invisible, such as a suit that goes all moiré when photographed or videotaped.
