Next Wednesday (26th) at the Button Factory all the finest men in Dublin will be out with their combs grooming and tweaking their near perfect moustaches in anticipation. Ford Search for a Super Model doesn’t come close-these boys are very sensitive about hair growth. In order to exert a respectable degree of “manliness” it’s important that ones Mo is bigger than the other Mo Fo’s on show.

For those of you who haven’t already heard (wake up) Movember the month formally known as November is a moustache growing charity event held during November each year that raises funds and awareness for men’s health. It’s first year in Ireland, Movember is already a huge success proven by the number of hairy dudes walking the streets.

It goes like this; at the start of Movember guys register with a clean-shaven face. Then they grow and groom their moustaches throughout November whilst raising money Action Prostate Cancer (part of the Irish Cancer Society) through sponsorship, parties and whatever creative methods work.

In homage to the cause I’ve selected some of the most handsome and stylish moustache bearing men of this time. Perhaps they provided inspiration for the many Mo’s being sported on the streets of Dublin all month and if they turn up at the party-everyone wins!

Matthew Williamson’s the last one (I don’t expect everyone to recognise one of the fashions fabulous sons).
