We’re halfway through November, which means many of you are close to sporting a full-out forest on your face. That’s right, it’s Movember, a month-long event that calls on those with follicly-gifted faces to raise money and awareness for “men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives.”
To inspire your hirsute pursuit, we’ve compiled a showcase of gentlemen who have made facial hair into an artform. And whether your ‘stache ambitions are geared toward the world stage, or if you’re just having some fun for a serious cause, we’d like to thank you not shaving.
If you’d like to share your ‘stache, feel free to upload a pic and join the ranks of these brave souls.
