Mutton chops are a facial hair style that has been passed down through the generations. When you see someone wearing them, you may be reminded of history books and old photographs of politicians and statesmen who wore them frequently in the past.
However, you recollect the man who had a healthy pair of mutton chops who you just saw in the deli a few hours ago.
To put it another way, the mutton chops have a classic look and style that never seems to go out of style, regardless of generation. They’re full sideburns that reach to the corners of the mouth but aren’t joined by a mustache or chin hair in their most frequent form.
They’re usually wider at the bottom than they are at the top. Other styles connect to a mustache to form a continuous hairline.
