An fine gallery of fine mustachios

An excellent resource for connoisseurs of facial hair that is firmly above-the-lip. Also good for people interested in amusing blogs, vintage photography and glossaries.

My first post ever! I hope I didn't break anything.

Great timing -- in just a few hours (CST), it'll be Movember.

Who wants a mustache ride?

I can't grow a mustache. Can't do it. I get the trashy 13-year-old boy-couple-of-dark-hairs thing going, but it doesn't look like an actual mustache. The rest of my facial hair grows in fine; really evenly, it'll grow as thick as you want it, just not the mustache. So I resort to shaving the area above my lip and going with an Abe Lincoln sort of deal.

And, basically, I hate mustaches and the people who have them. Mostly out of jealously. Bastards.

For some reason I feel compelled to comment in this thread.

Oh dear, davey_darling, your very nice mustache is marred by encroaching neckbeard. Don't let your facial hair connect to your chest hair, no one wins that game.

No discussion of moustaches would be complete without mentioning perhaps the most famous moustache of all time.

And, uh, Godwin.

I grew a goatee 'tache combination years ago and never looked back. Though you have to be extra careful with those typo when looking for advice on the web, unless you a real surprise...

Props to cog_nate for mentioning Movember. If you ever wanted a good excuse to grow the porn star/clark gable/plumbers/handlebar moustache, how about raising money for research into prostate cancer and depression in men?

Once, a few years ago, I decided to grow my moustache as large as I was able to. I didn't realize at the time that I would in fact be able to grow it pretty much without limit. I stopped at about the time I had it six inches past the corners of my mouth. It was very inconvenient: I used a special "moustache net" to hold it back when eating, and grooming it took a full tube of (rather expensive) moustache wax every couple of weeks. Eventually I trimmed it back to large-normal.

Still have a souvenir of it though: a couple of 7" long moustache hairs I saved, and one photo of me looking very Salvador Dali

Why does everybody in old photographs have beady eyes?
