Famous Moustaches

Everything to go with the lid when going to the office, a night on the town and special occasions. Looking sharp in your vintage/retro clothing has never been so easy... This is also your table to discuss and contribute to the conversations about reproducing the "Great Detective" look. Humphrey Bogart in "Casablanca" and "The Maltese Falcon" and William Powell in "The Thin Man" are just two great examples!

Also known as "Detective Gear"

After my accident last year, I have been clean shaven. I think I'll start a tradition of growing this style back starting on my birthday in August and keep it through the fall and winter, shaving it off again in the spring.
