The Great Moustaches of Our Time- Part One

Throughout history, through the dawning of our time, in the past, and for all of the times until now, there have been men who have worn their moustaches better than any other man alive. Or, at least, these men were noted in photographs so their legacy remains to this day. Let’s take a moment now, and observe some of the most memorable moustaches in history, part one.

The Einstein Moustache

The Einstein moustache: sometimes combed, but most often left bushy. The Einstein moustache is one that is worth noting. This noteworthy moustache makes most men appear to be a touch smarter than they really are.

If you are a man who is not very witty, simply don an Einstein ‘stache and you will be good to go (maybe even Jeopardy worthy). Keep your eyes open, though, people will begin asking you really tough questions. Just nod and squint inquisitively. Pull out your moustache brush whenever you become uncomfortable and you will appear brilliant once more.

The Mark Twain Walrus

Mark Twain, widely known for his wonderful written works from the late 1800s, is also known for his gorgeous upper lip hair. This style of moustache is often referred to as the “walrus”. The way that the moustache curls under near the bottom, and covers the entire upper lip makes this ‘stache resemble the whiskers of a walrus. Goo goo g’joob!

The Charlie Chaplin Toothbrush

The toothbrush moustache is a funny little thing that somehow looks good on a few fortunate men. The unfortunate part about the toothbrush moustache is that Hitler was also a representative. Because of this, choosing this type of moustache can cause a person to receive second glances, and this may not be a good thing.

The President Theodore Roosevelt

Finding a Canadian prime minister who sported a moustache was nearly impossible. The late president Theodore Roosevelt of the United States had a really great cookie duster, though. I mean, his moustache was carved into the side of a Mt. Rushmore, stop notch ‘stache status right there!

The Salvador Dali ‘Stache

Salvador Dali, a surrealist painter who was born in the early 1900’s, carried interestingly shaped upper-lip hair. Shaved down the center, and long strands pointing to the outward edges of his face, this artist made a name for himself with his paintings and with his individualized lip-hair style. Oh and the fact he was bonkers.

The best moustaches of our time have been worn by men who have shown greatness in some form or another. It goes without saying that it has taken a great man to make a great moustache, and the same is true of today. So grow that moustache long, and be proud of the manliness it portrays. Have fun with those little pieces of hair above your lip, and have an excellent Movember!
