Started as an idea in a pub in 1999, Movember was coined by a group of friends over drinks in Adelaide, Australia. Throughout the month of November, men are encouraged to raise awareness for prostate cancer and other male mental health initiatives by growing and maintaining moustaches in a variety of styles. Quickly moving to New Zealand, South Africa, Europe and North America, Movember has become an internationally recognized campaign with growing participation.
If you’re just beginning to see your moustache take shape, but aren’t sure whether to go Ron Burgundy or Salvador Dali, take inspiration from some of our glasses picks to help you make the final choice.
If you’re an ‘all in’ personality, why not go bold or go home by pairing two-toned Retro-Wingtips with a full horseshoe moustache? Your friends and family will surely be impressed by your commitment to the cause with this look.
Inspired by Tom Selleck or Frank Zappa? Why not go the way of the chevron with a sophisticated amount of shag? A striated pattern paired with Retro-Wingtip frames is a great style for the man on the go.
If you’re a fan of Brad Pitt’s Lt. Aldo Raine in Inglourious Basterds the painter’s brush is the shape for you. A semi-rimless pair of frames is the final touch to bring your style together this Movember.
Should your style harken to another time, the curvy handlebar may just be the look for you. The retro-inspired clubmaster style has made a major comeback and will perfectly suit your Movember style, while still remaining on trend for the months to come.
