Must-Read: Best ‘Staches Ever
We all know that now it’s Movember, that month where you’re supposed to grow a mustache in order to raise funding and awareness about prostate cancer — a great cause, folks, so even if you’re not able to grow any facial hair, might as well head on over to Movember.com to see how else you can help — but what it also gives us opportunity to do is to take a gander at some of the greatest mustaches of all time throughout history.
Which is why today we’re heading over to Men’s Health, who have put together a great list of some of the best mustaches of all time. We agree with 99% of their choices, and the one that simply sticks out to us as the perfect listing of the perfect mustache is this sucker:
The Spanish surrealist painter is remembered for his finely sculpted ‘stache just as much as he is for his work (melting pocket watches ring any bells?). And he wasn’t shy about it. He claimed to carry a jewel-studded cigarette case filled with mustaches that he would offer his friends. “Nobody dared to touch them. This was my test regarding the sacred aspect of mustaches,” he wrote. Pretty surreal.
One of these days, we are going to get the nerve to grow out a ‘stache like that one. For about a minute. And we’ll probably take a few photos of it, maybe even put it on Instagram, and then quickly shave it and never speak of it again. Which is just proof of how awesome Dali was.
So, then. What do you think? Got any suggestions? Who are your favorite mustaches?
