My husband had what could be best described as a rosebud mouth. With a thinner upper lip. He needed that mustache. And his face was round, so he wore a beard, very trimmed out, to add length to his face. Nearly goatee, but not completely.

And then he’d get bored and something would come off. Three days of shaving, and he’d be done with that and one week of growth and, it would be back.

They're somewhat more common in the military...husband is Navy, and a lot of the men he serves with have them, because they're for the most part not allowed beards, but moustaches are typically permitted. I think they look ridiculous, and my husband agrees.

I've literally never seen my dad's chin, except in pics. I'm 42.

He has had a beard and moustache continuously since he was in his midtwenties. It's kind of his signature thing. It isn't a Duck Dynasty type look, it's closely trimmed, more lumberjack than anything. When he grew it in the mid-seventies, it was a stylish aesthetic, then through the later 80s, 90s, into the 2000s, his look was not on trend, not that he knew or cared. Then it came back in style, so he is de facto stylish again at 72, lol.

No...just no....to mustaches. No one takes them serious IMO.....

When a handsome guy like Dean on Bachelor Pad can’t even pull it off without everybody giggling....but he lives in a van & is unemployed too....so....

I wonder if that is going to happen in the next few years with the previously hip and currently reviled stand-along mustache on men.

At this time of year it's definitely a trend. It's "Movember" right now when so many men (Mo Bros) grow moustaches for the cause this month alone. So it's possible you may see an increase in the trend during the month of November and then a decrease in moustaches in December and onwards when most Mo Bros shave off their Movember moustaches.

My fiance has a mustache and beard. I dislike the beard - never cared for them - but he looks better with a nicely trimmed mustache. The only men I think can wear a mustache tend to be dark haired. Blond & redheaded men look silly with facial hair, same as Asian guys - who look better clean shaven.

I’ve had a mustache since I was 18 years old. Which means in a few short years I will have had it for half a century! No beard or goatee just the mustache

Then when a career military man retires, he grows his "retirement beard"...and discovers that it's gray!

The only guy that manages to successfully pull it off is Tom Selleck.
In contrast with you, I loathe the look of Tom Selleck with his mustache and felt he was much more handsome (when he was much younger) without it.

In fact, I think the bushy mustache, together with his bushy, arched eyebrows, just accentuates his often angry appearance:

Don't think this one's coming back



Too bad the 'comb over' isn't more strongly associated with Hitler.
