'Stache Studs1 of 20
By Natasha Burton
Since 2003, November has also been known as Movember, a month of mustache-growing to raise awareness (and moola) for men's heath issues. These 19 guys—sporting 'staches that would make Tom Selleck jealous—are loyal to the cause. Read on to find out what mo-tivates them and how you can show your support.
Kyle, 272 of 20
"While mustachioed, I feel 70 percent man and 30 percent creepy neighbor that you never talk to but always see wandering around the neighborhood. But I also feel 100 percent proud to help raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer research."
Colin, 263 of 20
"I am not a proud man, except when it comes to my mustache. I can grow one, so it makes me feel manly, yet dirty all at the same time."
Gary, 304 of 20
"I think my 'stache looks great, and it makes me feel extra virile and powerful. However, I feel like others might think I am an undercover cop, like Jason Patric in the movie Narc, but I am fine with that."
Calvin, 255 of 20
"My mustache is phenomenal. Period. It brings people joy and laughter through my creepy growing stage, but then actually looks damn fine once it grows in."
Matt, 316 of 20
"I have the blondest mustache ever, so you can only see it in the right light, but I am proud of it nonetheless and I believe in everything the mo' represents!"
Chris, 287 of 20
"I hope that my mustache will bring forth my inner gentleman. I have been blessed with no major health issues in my immediate family, but have some close friends who have gone through some troubled times. I hope that any amount of awareness will encourage men to take care of themselves inside and out."
Andrew, 368 of 20
"I wear my mustache like a proud badge. This mo' starts conversations every day in Movember to find a cure to testicular and prostate cancer. My father always had a mustache and when I proudly wear my 'stache, it connects me to his legacy—he passed away from cancer in 2001."
Ron, 489 of 20
"My mo'? Makes me look like kind of a big deal. Like somebody they'd make two movies about."
Matt, 2710 of 20
"My mustache makes me feel like I just dueled with Billy the Kidd in the Wild West."
Colin, 3011 of 20
"The only time I have ever sported a mustache is during November. I have to say, I really enjoy showing it off like a badge of honor."
Scott, 2712 of 20
"To me, the mustache represents the resurgence of lost arts. At one time in history, a man without facial hair was merely a boy. While no longer true, the mustache has come to mean both urbane connoisseurship and rugged individuality."
Justin, 2513 of 20
"My mustache, though indeed strikingly well groomed and exceedingly good-looking, is most importantly a powerful conduit for candid conversations on men's health."
Chris, 3414 of 20
"Come Nov. 17, 2013, I will be 16 years removed from testicular cancer. My upper lip will never hit puberty so I have the lamest mo' west of the Mississippi—please give so my mo' can grow!"
Stephen, 2515 of 20
"Last year was my first round of Movember and the first time I had let my mustache really grow. I loved it! I got a good number of stares and questions but it was great."
Surya, 3116 of 20
"I like having a 'stache—though not enough to keep it year round—and it's an easy way to raise money for a good cause. The only downside is that I constantly feel like I might be randomly selected for enhanced screenings."
Dave, 2917 of 20
"My mustache this year is going to be more of a trophy than anything else: I ran the New York City Marathon on Movember 3, as a part of the Movember Athletic Company. Why just talk about men's health when I can spend 26 miles making the point!"
Lee, 3218 of 20
"As this is my fifth Movember, I normally go through a three-phase cycle with my mo' over the course of the month. The first few days I'm surprised to see so little facial hair. (I normally have a goatee or full beard so I'm one of the weirdos for whom Movember participation actually means more shaving.) By week two, my mo' grows in and I get used to my own reflection and my confidence grows. By the end of the month, my mo' and I are unstoppable."
Kevin, 3219 of 20
"My life-long friend John Paul (pictured, left) and I formed a Movember team this year called The Amazingly Misplaced Eyebrows. I think I look quite dashing in my mo'. My friends? Not so much."
Alejandro, 2820 of 20
"My Mo makes me feel like a man's man, like Burt Reynolds or Chuck Norris. It gives me great power and I want to use it to spread the message that' men's health is extremely important."
