English Moustache

The sports at RAF Lyneham really got into the spirit for the Movember charity movement that aims to raise money and awareness for men's health issues by moustache growing.

Pity I can grow nothing better than something resembling an overused toothbrush. I grow the odd beard and sometimes leave a bit more length on the upper-lip as a sort of 'stealth' moustache to see what I can muster, but  it's very much a glorified eyebrow.

In different circumstances, I think I'd try for an English moustache. The style is defined on its dedicated Wiki page as "beginning at the middle of the upper lip the whiskers are very long and pulled to the side, slightly curled; the ends are pointed slightly upward; areas past the corner of the mouth must be shaved."  This Victorian photo of a British Army polo team in India shows some good examples. Some nice polo tops too. I could well see them in Hackett or Ralph Lauren.
