During the 1980s, inspired largely by the then-popular television series Miami Vice and its unshaven lead character, James "Sonny" Crockett (Don Johnson), two-day stubble gained not only social acceptance, but even popularity. This is also known as designer stubble, particularly if it is groomed, shaped, and maintained as a regular beard would be.
The most famous politician in history to sport a five o'clock shadow, at a time when it was still considered a faux pas, was U.S. president Richard Nixon, who is said to have lost the 1960 presidential election in part due to his unfortunate stubbled appearance during the televised United States presidential election debates with John F. Kennedy.
