The second style is upon us; the extended chevron or perhaps the reverse Dali. Don Mattingly and Freddy Mercury both sported this style although they had dark hair so it showed up better. I’m hoping this will morph into a Magnum, perhaps for the last few days of the month. To be honest, I might continue the trend post-Movember; perhaps a little ‘three musketeer’ action? Dad and Tim joined me for the Mo-Bro celebration; Tim is maintaining his horseshoe while Dad is going for the manchu look.

Movember is underway. Phase #1 has me sporting the Horseshoe. According the mustache guide at the American Mustache Institute, the Horseshoe is a full moustache with vertical extensions grown on the corners of the lips and down the sides of the mouth to the jawline, resembling an upside-down horseshoe. The whiskers grown along the sides of the mouth in the horseshoe are sometimes referred to as “pipes.”
I have it on good authority that both Martin “what is that on your lip” Davies and Tim “the Crown of Brown” Davies will be participating in Movember. Stay tuned for their updates on Facebook.
By now, most of you know about Movember (no, it isn’t a typo!). Movember started in Australia and has now become a world-wide phenomenon whereby men sport mustaches for the month of November to raise funds and generate publicity for prostate cancer. For those of you not sporting the ‘stache, are you planning to take the plunge and do something different this month? Most of us know someone who has battled prostate cancer; let’s show them our support by participating. I’m particularly impressed by how efficient Movember is as a fundraising organization (see chart). For more information on Movember, please click here. You can learn about the idea, participate, donate and also find local groups who are supporting the event.
I’m going to try a few different ‘staches throughout the month so stay tuned for picture updates.
