"Real Men Have Flamboyant Facial Hair"*


Proof that hawtness and mustaches do mix!

The return of the 'stache...and I'm excited!
Don't get me wrong, I've never been a fan of the Tom Selleck look, but when my bf starting growing out the hair on his upper-lip I saw potential right away. Okay, maybe not right away... but I'm totally sold now.
And I'm not just blinded by love, indie band members and actors (not just Johny Depp) are jumping on the 'stache wagon.

What's the verdict, fashionistas/os?

UMMM ON HIM IT LOOKS OK, BUT DEFINITELY IS NOT THE CASE FOR EVERYONE

Cammila said...

My cat has a big moustache, so I'm always cooing at him that he's handsome like Burt Reynolds.

That first guy looks like he's dressed like a generic Kurt Russell/Chuck Norris character for Halloween. But in a hot way.

June Shin said...

mmm, i personally can't get into the stache thing. But everyone is different.

lisa said...

Your bf wears his 'stache well. I don't like kissing guys with facial hair, though. Kind of scratchy.

Muriel Mercurial said...

He really rocks the mustache, which only few men can pull off. I think it depends on how much of a mustache one can grow, in terms of color and bushy-ness. My bf could never grow a proper fashionable mustache, but a very close friend of mine changes his mustache style all the time and always looks good.

So I suppose it really depends on the guy.

Sharon Rose said...

Haha, its a great look, not sure if I want to live with a man with a tache though!!

Ace said...

My daddy has had a stache my] whole life, so now when I see a guy with a stache I get weird daddy feelings. It's a no go for me, but I've clearly got issues.

Stephanie said...

I think some guys can really pull it off. But personally, I'm a fan of some major all over facial stubble.

ambika said...

My boyfriend cracks me up when he does this. Of course, he'll also talk with his Kentucky accent (which he usually never does) and pretend like he's chewing tobacco, too so it's a bit different take...

bronwyn said...

I loooooved The Darjeeling Ltd...such a cool movie!

Wendy said...

I don't know, not really into that myself.

LalaLiu said...

Lain said...

I am inspired. Mustache, here I come. Give me six years, please!

Asian Cajuns, how do you feel if a man has blonde hair but a red stache?

Bombchell said...

oh well Mario & Luigi rocked theirs.

Amie said...

What can I say.. I don´t hate it.. !!:):)

Danz said...

My fiance has a good amount of facial hair, esp. for an asian guy, and could grow a 'stache with no problem. That's fine, but I absolutely draw the line at handlebars. Lol. I'm diggin' your bf's scarf, though!

I think it only works for some--but nearly every boy will try it!

hiking in stilettos said...

i am definitely on the band wagon.. although not on everyone.. it looks good on the bf though! <3

Terri said...

this goes beyond tom selleck and napoleon (sp) dynamite's bro's 'stache, this is a (rhyme's with horn) 'stache! LOL!

Annie said...

I think they're cool. Funny, sexy, and cool.

Songy said...

funny funny...what's with green and red undies? :P

ryder said...

love a mustache!
especial liking your bf curls at the ends. facial hair adds so much personality.

miss a. said...

Jason Schwartzman makes me drool. I love him. But I'm not a huge fan of facial hair. Face feels too scratchy and makes making out uncomfortable. I like men who have faces like a baby's ass - soft and hairless. hahaha

this wheel's on fire said...

i always kinda loved facial hair...but definately not a look for everyone!

Shen-Shen said...

Hot stuff!

I kinda like facial hair, as long as it's not neanderthal..-ean.

Julia said...

My bf has crazy facial hair as well! I love it on him, but that's because he knows how to pull it off. :)

enc said...

Zoinks, you are a lucky girl!

Mr.OM has a purple stinger. I love it.

Jill said...

Haha, not everyone can rock it, but he does. I love the guys from Flight of the Conchords!

Ediot said...

well.- my boy is all covered in hair- i like beard. but i dont know if i love mustach.. itch when kissing.. hehe

Alya said...

well, the guys over here in the Arab world are proud of their facial hair (NOT BEARDS AND STUFF LIKE THEY SHOW IN THE MOVIES), but goatees and fuzzy cheeks, etc.

I dont like the 'moustache only' look though. But when accompanied by chin or beard hair, then I find it acceptable.

ashleigh said...

I can't resist facial hair x) The Darjeeling Limited is one of my favorite movies, I think the mustache totally made his character :P
