10 great historical ‘staches


Happy Movember, folks! To honor this special time of year when unrecognizable gardens of fuzz are popping up on faces everywhere, Emily Temple at Flavorwire has rounded up some serious historical inspiration to help you or your loved ones along in those heroic facial hair efforts.

Hey, you might not be equipped to sprout a Teddy Roosevelt, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give it a shot for a good cause.

Teddy Roosevelt

One of only four US presidents with standalone moustaches (you’ll meet another further on in this list), Roosevelt’s bristle was prodigious, the perfect size and shape for riding a bull moose through the water. Just our opinion, of course.


Kaiser Wilhelm I

While we admit that the muttonchops on the first German emperor don’t hurt the picture, we can’t help but be amazed by the sheer horizontal power of his moustache. Especially in contrast to that shiny head of his. Additional points go to him for having Otto Von Bismarck, another well-mustachioed fellow, as his right hand man.

Full story at Flavorwire.

Historical hair with flair.
