        Movember

        Posted November 21st, 2013

        Make November better with a mustache! Movember is a movement to raise awareness for men’s heath issues. These issues range from cancer to mental health and more. Awareness is raised by growing spectacular facial hair for the entire month of November, raising funds and starting a conversation.  Learn more about the huge movement here. We’ve browsed the market for the finest mustachioed items around – and this is what we found. (Please keep in mind that purchases of these items do not -as far as we know – support the Movember movement directly, but are a great way to sport and support mustaches all year long!)
