Mustaches
« on: March 17, 2023, 01:01:10 PM »
Anyone here have a mustache? I've been watching a lot of 80's movies and shows... mustaches everywhere. My wife's dad (or i could say father in law).. has a mustache and has looked like Magnum PI forever. I'm pondering growing one because my son said they're pretty sick. I never do facial hair ... i generally keep a 5 o clock shadow and that is it. My hair and/or facial hair is light brown, which I dunno if i'm feeling that in a stache so much but maybe we'll see. How is having a mustache? Is it a vibe? It seems like it would be a vibe indeed.

When I was in the air force I had one very briefly. If you don't know about military grooming regulations, they're strict as fuck (look up AFI 36-2903 if you want to see them) including the only facial hair allowed without a waiver being a mustache that doesn't extend past the ends of your mouth.

Over xmas/new years we would stagger our staffing so everyone got one of those two weeks off and most of the young single guys like myself took new years so the people with families could have Xmas. One year someone came up with the bright idea to have a mustache growing contest over the week we were all off. Now I'm a hairy motherfucker and I knew I could grow at least a recognizable lip sweater in a week so I was totally down. We all talked shit about how we were going to win and left for the holiday.

I come in the next Monday and I was the only fucking person with a mustache. No one else, including the dude who came up with the idea actually participated. I had to walk around all day catching child molester jokes from every angle. I wanted to keep it for a few days out of spite but my supervisor paid me $20 to shave it off that night.

Edit - if we're counting with beard I've been rocking that on and off for about 20 years

Started growing one around the beginning of December. Initially, I was going to go full beard/mustache combo, but my partner asked what I'd look like with just a mustache so I shaved the beard and never looked back.
It definitely makes me feel like I'm treated with more respect, but that's probably because it makes me look closer to my actual age than without it. (I'm 28, btw, most people think I'm fresh 18 when I have a shaved face)

It's not for everyone, but if you can get yourself to just do simple maintenance (trimming) then go for it.

Been running full beard but over a year, getting food in it is fucked. I like eating bacon and runny egg sandwiches and the yolk always fucks me

Drinking out of a glass can be messy too if not careful

Backing it tho

Same here, but itís been 2 years now. Iím about to shave it off when it gets a bit warmer here, kinda cool to see my face again(hopefully). When I still had hair I rocked all kinds of moustaches, from Lemmy style to thin pimp but with shaved head they look a bit too sus so all or nothing these days.

My go to clipper shave is a #2 on the stache and #1 on the rest.  So the stache looks pronounced for the first week or so, then gradually morphs into a normal beard.  Keep the neck clean and repeat every couple weeks.

As a baseball fan you have three options as far as I can see.

You could go with the Rollie Fingers

I had a decent one develop during covid. I really should bring it back. I just hate the awkward phase.

I grew one over the first year of Covid, did the whole circus conductor / Richie jackson curls.

Iíve kept it but itís a lot more maintained now, Iíve got a real red facial hair but darker hair so itís a weird dynamic to go the full beard.

A Mo with a bit of scruff seems to be the right balance.

Been running one of various lengths for awhile now. I used to just trim the rest of my face with a 3mm and the mustache area with something longer. Now Iíve let it get even thicker and use scissors to clean it up. Usually just trim the rest once a week so it goes from obvious to slightly more subtle.

This is the way.

I rock a full beard for my wife's sake and the stache for my own, so it's the full beard much more often. Happy wife etc., y'all know the drill.
It started as a drunken shit talk but I believe in myself

Had a mustache for about five years. All my groomsmen then grew one for our wedding. Shortly after I shaved as one day I saw this man with a mustache & for some reason it freaked me out so I went home & instantly shaved. I think they are cool but when I grow one I feel like I am intentionally trying to look hip so I stay away from it. Once in a while I will get some light scruff but I certainly prefer a baby face these days.

I've had a stache for 20 years, and occasionally I want to look a little younger so I'll shave it offÖ but it's just too startling now to see myself clean shaven. Never again.

Iíve had one on and off since 2004 I think. I generally keep it for a couple years and then shave it for a few months before regrowing it.

No one in my family, including my mom, has ever seen my dad without a mustache. There are some Vietnam era military photos of him clean shaven but thatís as close as weíll ever get. I pretty much look exactly like my dad when he was my age, with or without the mustache.

My mustache kinda sucks but my wife likes it so I keep it most of the time. My dadís mustache wasnít that great when he was my age but now itís fine, so thereís hope for me.

I won a local mustache competition 5 or 6 years ago.   I wanted a mustache long enough to wax like Rollie Fingers.  I got that, and then it kept getting bigger.  Then it got out of hand and the joke went to far.  I decided I was done with it and just about then the competition was announced.  I grew it for three more months and waxed it almost straight up like Dali.  The tips were eyebrow tall.  Won that shit, and shaved it off in the morning.  I'll never let it get that long again. It was a pain in the ass.  I would sleep on it and it would get all crooked and shit, so I couldn't even go to the store to get milk without grooming it. 

I've had a mustache for all but maybe four weeks total since 1997.   Some friends and I were having a dumb facial hair contest, and a girl that I was into really liked it.  We dated for a few months until she moved out of state, and I hung onto the crush an the facial hair.   

I switched it up a few times, and met my wife in 2003.  She has only seen me a few times without a mustache or beard (a few times in winter mode).  My kids have seen me even fewer times. Last time I shaved it (probably 5 years ago) my older daughter cried.
