I’ve never been a big fan of the moustache. I don’t mind it so much in combination with other facial hair (I do enjoy a bit of scruff), but when worn alone mustaches make most men look like creepy pedophiles.
Unless you’re hanging on real hard to the eighties, they’re just not attractive. Case in point:
I can, however, get behind it in Movember (yeah. That’s right. Movember). Starting November 1st Mo Bros (yeah, that’s right too) begin the long, arduous task of growing a month-long mustache.
Why would anyone voluntarily grow a gross animal-looking thing above their lip? To raise both funds and awareness for prostate cancer.
It’s kind of a brilliant idea. As the website says, “Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.”
But what if you want to support the cause but… uh… can’t grow a moustache (at least that fast)?
Luckily there are plenty of goods out there with moustaches plastered all over them:
If your guy is growing a little ‘stache, send me a photo: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll feature it here at the end of the month!
