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"

Famous Moustaches

Postby DanielJones » Thu Mar 22, 2012 11:11 am

Thought it would be interesting to post pictures of famous and not so famous moustache wearers. From the celebrity all the way dow to the obscure Turkish villager. Post pics of the cookie dusters that made an impression throughout history. Lets tee the good and the evil ones. The fairly normal to the surreal. Petite ones to massive spanners that defy the laws of physics. Actors, their characters, Generals, soldiers, politicians, farmers. You name it, any Dirt Squirrel in history that has made an impression will fit the bill here.

I'll start out with a few.

Albert Einstein.

Salvador Dali
Image

Charlie Chaplin
Image

Bring it on folks! Let's see those soup strainers, be it soeone elses or even your for that matter. I know several of you here have your own hairy filter that has adorned your upper lip for some time. Be proud, show it off. How long have you had yours in place?

Enjoy and have fun with this one.

Cheers!

Thanks Doug! The idea really sprang from the Great Moustaches coffee mug my wife recently got me on a whim.
Image

It got me thinking that there are more that just a few great & famous moustaches around the world than what they showcaased on this coffee mug.

Women can get in on the act too. Frida Kahlo for instance. Those eyebrows were sort of a Dali like moustache. :?
Image

Heck, even Cartoons can get in on the act. Yosemite Sam sported a real corker.
Image

And so on.

Cheers!

This man's moustache -

...has been known to conquer small Caribbean nations. On its own.

If you fly, you should also recognize this one. If you don't...cough up your wings.

Image

And here's a whole pile of them. Military history students ought to be able to identify at least three figures in this one.

Get it together? Lady, last time my people got it together it took most of Robert E. Lee's backyard to bury the evidence.

In my searches for a Fez hat I came across this true spanner on a Turkish man. Truly an epic cookie duster.

And finally, a man never to be crossed. Wyatt Earp.

"Be always drunken. Nothing else matters: that is the only question. If you would not feel the horrible burden of Time weighing on your shoulders and crushing you to the earth, be drunken continually. Drunken with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtues, as you will. But be drunk.. ask what hour it is.. 'It is the hour to be drunken! Be drunken, if you would not be martyred slaves of Time; be drunken continually! With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you will.' "

See the new forum slogan.

Also, facial hair existed before Tom Selleck but he OWNED the 'stache.
