    I have a mustache and chin whiskers. When I get a haircut about once a month, I also trim the facial stuff down to about the 8 setting on one of those beard trimmers. Every once in a while I completely screw up the trimming and just shave and start over. I'm able to pretty much achieve the homeless look either way.

    I've read that Groucho usually had his real mustache, but occasionally shaved it off. If he had a film to do at those times, he would just "grease pencil" one on. That photo looks like it might be a make-up one. ;)

    I like the Django Reinhardt pencil moustache ... Tried it, but didn't keep it ... Looked incredibly suave, I must say ...

    Clark Gable almost looked like a different guy when he didn't have his mustache.

    Man, you're afflicted with more than a passing resemblance to Groucho there Stringbanger!

    I heard a woman once say that a man without a moustache is like a sausage without mustard

    I hope to never find out what that means

    I say go for it. If you can't grow one the way you want, just tape one on!

    Cheers,
    Doug

    P.S. Jeez I look a lot like Kelso from "That 70's Show" in the first pic o_O

    Since I retired the mustache which I've had since I got out of the service along with the beard are growing longer and whiter. I've heard Santa Clauses make $3K a season and I plan to be ready next November.

    I went to GG's memorial service in NYC, mostly out of curiosity.
    Don't recall Merle or that particular stache...

    IMG_1043.JPG I had a mustache for about 8 years. It started out a nice salt-and-pepper, but gradually became virtually white. Shaved shortly after this photo. Lost 10 years in 10 minutes. Been clean-shaven since.

    I’m the blue shirt wearing, hair havin’, mustachioed dude with CRAPS over his head.
    I haven’t had a ‘stache (only) since.
    This was December 1991, Rodeo Week in Las Vegas, at the Tropicana.
    I saw Telly Savalas playing blackjack on one of our breaks.
    Funny the stuff you remember.
    Harvey, (white shirt) ex-Sir Douglas Quintet bassist has a better handlebar goin’, IMO.

    I grew a mustache as soon as I was able. I blame the Sgt Pepper album cover. Although I've tried many facial topiary effects, the mustache has stayed pretty constant.

    Every five, ten years or so I shave it off just to see what's going on under there, but I almost always immediately grow it back.

    During one mustacheless period I noticed I had developed an odd reflex. When I take a sip of something liquid, I follow the swallow by thrusting my lower lip just a little out past the 'stache, then sucking in a breath of air. Drawing the trapped liquid down out of the mustache, y'see, so it doesn't drip.

    At this point it's definitely got me looking like Cliff Arquette as Charlie Weaver, but still, it feels like me to me. A mustache is funny; it's like the back of your head. You seldom see it directly, but wouldn't feel right without it.

    I grew a handlebar in my early 20s. A total PITA but it was super cool. Shoulder length hair, full beard, & handlebar.
    The training of the handlebar, the constant curling (think Snydely Whiplash), & waxing were too much and I returned it to my normal ‘stash.
    I also tried a couple of Fu Manchus, some curl under (opposite of a handlebar), and a Walrus (total failure)
    I grew my first mustache at 14. Only during the summer. Had to shave before school started. I also had longer sideburns and mutton chops. Again, only during the summer.
    Grew my first beard at 17. Once I graduated from HS (1970) I grew a beard and kept it until December 1973. Shaved it as a Xmas gift for my mom & granny. Grew it back late January 1974 and have had it ever since
    IF I ever have to disappear I could probably shave and be non recognizable.

    I’ve been known to sport a mustache on occasion.

    This is me, too.

    I've always liked Dundreary-style beards & 'staches but never had the real urge to grow one. Right now I'm very slowly working on my Billy Gibbons look. Still have a l-o-o-o-o-n-g way to go! (But it keeps my neck warm in -40 weather!)

    Ditto on the 'stache in my 20s. Kept it for most of the decade along with a beard grown when I was 26. After that it was on again - off again depending on whim. Nowadays I have the start of a beard/mustache once a week. I hate the ritual of shaving and since I'm retired I only shave when I have somewhere nice to go or it starts itching too much, usually it takes about a week to reach that point. :)
