A gentleman and his moustache
It has come to my attention that some people think that moustaches are just for “Movember”. Just like the idea that “puppies are only for Christmas” I can tell you that this idea is categorically wrong. I should know because I categorised it myself.
A gentleman and his moustache may have a love/hate relationship but growing a moustache (or indeed any facial hair for that matter) for one month a year is more hate than love. Therefore the ratio needs to be corrected.
The simplest way to grow a moustache is to firstly stick a picture of your desired moustache next to your bathroom mirror, this informs your top lip that there is work to be done. Next, stop shaving your top lip. The final step is to groom to get the desired look. It’s that simple (in fact, it’s even simpler).
Most of the greatest gentlemen in history, although not known for sporting the moustache, did dabble in it from occasion to occasion. Unfortunately for many other gentlemen in the film industry, contracts and the like squashed their inherent lust for a hairy top lip.
If only there were more parts in Hollywood scripts for moustached gentlemen. Unfortunately for other A-listers Errol Flynn and Clarke Gable had cornered that niche market.
This sad set of events doesn’t stop you though, so what is your excuse for not spontaneously growing gentlemanly facial hair? The answer usually has to do with women, which I can tell you now is an old wives tale. Gentle ladies are quite partial to the well groomed moustache, just ask any gentleman who has ever styled his moustache for recreational purposes and he’ll tell you.
The moustache doesn’t just make you more appealing to the lady you are courting, it also makes you look smarter and more worldly.
So there you have it.
