It’s great to see how many organizations are participating and contributing to Movember. Add to the list Google Chrome.
BANG! Aaaaaand the race is off! Gentlemen start pushing those upper lip hair follicles as far as they can go. Movember has officially started. And don’t forget to donate to the cause (prostate cancer, not just mustaches) and get other people to sponsor you as well.
It seems that everyone is chipping in this Movember by whatever means they can. Friends and families are making donations, men are volunteering their faces and some women are even encouraging others to reward those men, sexually. So ladies, if you want to help a Mo Bro out, have some sex with him. Who knows, maybe you’ll get a mustache ride.
As you Stachist followers already know, November 1st marked the beginning of what is world-widely known as “Movember.” Where men put down their razors to let all visibly be known what it is to be Man, while raising money and awareness for prostate cancer. This year I’ve decided to join a team and participate in the only way I know how; to beg for money. For sadly, I myself cannot grow a mustache, nor can I even directly benefit from the donations of this cause, for I also lack a prostate. But hey… it’s just nice to be a part of something.
So here comes the fun interactive part for you, the readers. You will give our team money. At least that’s my hope. And in exchange I’ll be posting periodic updates throughout the month of our team member’s “growth.” A pictorial diary if you will. Sweet deal huh? Before you say no, meet the team.
The Team: Labii superioris pili eximus
translation: Excellent upper lip hair
Ryan, the Captain
Ryan cannot be satisfied with a mere still photo of himself, so he created this little charming vignette. That is why he is our captain.

Stachetag has arrived just in time for Movember! Stachetag is a website that scrapes Twitter for any “hashtag” of #movember and then arranges the tweets and their corresponding images chronologically by username. It will even create an animated gif from all the photos.
If you’re growing a mustache for Movember, this is a must-do. I can’t wait to check it out on Movember 30th when we’ll be able to see all the staches grow from peach fuzz to cookie dusters in a matter of seconds.
TOMS, the social-conscious purveyor of hipster footwear, is helping out the Movember cause. They’ve crafted a limited edition Movember branded shoe. It features dark brown corduroy and the Movember mustache logo.
I you’re a Mo Sista, this is a great way for you to support the fight against cancer.
It’s that time of year again. The day after Halloween. The day you will stop shaving the space above your lip. The 1st of Movember! It’s an oft imitated month (Stachtober, Mustache March) but Movember is the biggest and celebrated worldwide.
It started in Australia, that upside-down land where they call mustaches “Mos.” The great part about Movember is that you’re growing your stache for charity, not for vanity, the usual reason. It’s also a great way to test the waters if you’re a little shy when it comes to facial hair.
So don’t wait any longer. Start growing your mo and donate!
We’re now halfway into Movember and the staches are starting to take shape. I’ve been keeping up with Mo Bro James, who’s been updating folks on the status of his Mo via Twitter. James hails from Austin, Texas and is growing a stache of the “strongman” style. He drinks whiskey to help it grow: “whiskey is miracle grow for Mos. Makes hair stand up and try to leap of the face… “.
So far, his team, Magical MOments has raised $2,046.33. Click the link to donate. Keep up the good work, James!
With the festivities of Halloween over, that means today is Movember 1st. Day One of Movember. Commence your upper lip facial hair growing now.
More Movember madness: T-shirt slanger PalmerCash is donating $10 from every mustache-themed t-shirt they sell in the month of Movember. This one on the right will set you back $22.97, but, mind you, almost half of that is going to the Movember Foundation and ultimately to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Lance Armstrong Foundation.
This is my favorite pick from their selection because it highlights the dual preconceptions that people have of men with ‘staches. Are they gentlemen? Are they criminals?
Whenever I have a moustache there are always two camps… those who think it makes me look like a gentleman, and those who make me think it looks like a criminal.
To be honest, it makes me look like both.
