All hail the moustachio!

I don’t mind that mustaches are the new black or the old beard or an overused prop in indie wedding photos; I still love them!  Ever since becoming hopelessly obsessed with The Forsyte Saga (read about my obsession here) and subsequently, Montague Dartie, I still can’t get enough.  I’ve downloaded every mustache accessorizing app and spend hours looking up finely combed variations to admire.  They’re like men’s little accessories; their makeup, if you will, and I think they are one heck of a handsome accessory.

Here are my favorite specimens, with my Montie being number one, of course.

    mmmhhhh….. I am not sure about mustaches, but I agree that it looks good on some man :-)
    btw, are you sure it is Rupert Everett in “Young Victoria”?

  2. I have always loved facial hair on men!
