Here at Sumo & Stogies, we having nothing but the highest respect for those that choose to sport man’s simplest, yet manliest accessory: Facial Hair (See Valentine’s “A Word on Facials”). Over the past few years the month of November has been taken over by Movember. Movember encourages men to grow mustaches for charity from the 1st – 30th of the month, and to donate any raised money to raise awareness for men’s health issues such as Prostate cancer. (official website)
The gentlemen and I wholly support this campaign, and encourage all of our readers to participate. If you can’t grow one, support a gentleman who can by donating. Feel free to send us pictures of your ‘staches, and if we get enough entries, we’ll rank them and honor the best mouth-mane.
The mustache is back gentlemen. It went away for a while in the late 90’s and through the aughts. Although some may argue that well-groomed facial hair never went away, now-a-days there are a plethora of beards, mutton-chops, goatees, handlebars, and chin-straps out there. So be proud of your mustache this month, and join the ranks of some of history’s manliest men.
