But what of Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton, whose facespanner earned him the Arab sobriquet, "Father of Moustachioes"?
October 28, 2007 10:28 AM

A fine man, but sadly unpictured in my collection. I strive not to post images not in my collection, mostly out of politeness and a fear of re-igniting the horrific mustache plagiarism wars of 2003 that claimed the lives so many mustache bloggers.



Beards


(lord) franko said...

while i prefer just a mustache, the proper beard can enhance a mustache sometimes, don't you think? sort of like the proper accessory to fine outfit?

A beard to me is like a fine lawn gone to seed for lack of mowing. I do not lament the beard, but rather the mustache it has subsumed.



Terminology

A. Truman North said...
Why do you spell the M-word that way?
October 31, 2007 9:41 PM

A question answered in the Glossary:

Moustache
Foreign variant of mustache. Primarily used in opium dens and other houses of ill-repute where no gentlemanly facial hair would ever find itself.

I do not object to the use of moustache, but one must look deep into one's soul and take a side. I sided against the superfluous o.


Michael said...
Ah, so that's what it's called—a philtrim (although Dictionary.com Wikipedia and spell it philtrum).

Both are acceptable, but I will admit to a terrible propensity to use both. Unsightly in such fine company.



Sociology

Film Scholar

Weren't mustaches once a symbol of wealth in the 19th Century? How does that equate to the "porn-stache" we see nowdays.

Pornography reflects our must base and urgent desires. What is more desirable than a mustache?



Mustache Health

Dem said...

Of course here they're called moustaches. I'm growing one now for the first time since I sported a George Harrison as a much younger man so I was pleased to see this listed in the blogs of note. This time I'm aiming for something more along the lines of an Errol Flynn, the famous Australian moving picture performer of yore. Any and all grooming and cultivation tips much appreciated. For instance, that thing about rubbing the hairless area with salt to tempt the hair out for a drink, then tying a knot in it near the root so it can't retreat back under the skin, what salt works best - sea or siberian mined?
October 30, 2007 8:19 AM

While salting is a fine way to start a mustache, one should proceed with caution. Any free chloride could result in Acute Follicular Seizure. A fast growing mustache is a wonderful thing, but AFS can wither a mustache for life.


(lord) franko said...
i second the inquiry for more moustache maintenance tips. to condition or not? waxes, pomades, or ??
October 30, 2007 9:39 AM

Conditioners are rarely desired. While the soft mustache pleases ladies, it can lack the structure required for proper twisting. Regular soap and water is best, for you want to maintain the native bacteria present in a healthy mustache.

As for pomades and waxes, since the best mustache styling products are now illegal, I cannot vouch for any modern product in good conscious.


Grimscott said...
I currently sport a wonderful, cultivated, groomed, lip-shading mustache of a sort any 19th century gentleman would be proud of; unfortunately due to an unfortunate industrial accident I am being advised by my medical practitioner to either grow a beard or undergo a series of painful surgeries. As an expert in the field I would have your advice? Beard or painful surgery?
October 26, 2007 10:11 AM

Better some facial hair than none at all. There are many fine support groups with chapters in most metropolitan areas to help you cope with the lost of the use of your mustache. But beware the mustacheless goatee. Far better to have a full beard and be mistaken for a handsome Amish man, than a creature of such ill-repute.



Identification

kevyn said...
what would you call mine?

October 30, 2007 5:01 PM

That, sir, is an Inverted Kurdish, so-called for its resemblance to a Û.


Beanieville said... Interesting facination of mustache you got there. Perhaps i can send in mine for you to examine my pedigree? October 28, 2007 2:36 PM

Ricardo Mamood-Vega said...
Great site. I have a JPEG of an old dude with moustache but doesn't fall under any classification. Can you classify it if I send an JPEG to you? (No virus nor threats) October 29, 2007 9:57 PM

off.the.twig said... have you considered a similar tribute site to the oft forgotten mutton chops? i feel that you could do justice, where justice is due.

Sir Monocle said...
I concur with sir dungan. Wish I saw this site sooner! I've done a David Niven (thin, cosmopolitain). Is there a name for that?

can i be given an e-mail alert when you begin researching great Major League Baseball Mustaches from the 70's and 80's? October 25, 2007 9:28 PM

Alas, am I but one man and deprived as I am of an assistant (albeit a poor one), I must leave Mustaches of the Twentieth Century as a subject for someone else to dedicate themselves to. Hopefully my work here will inspire them in their endeavors.

This site is amazing!!!

Olive Duster said...

I fell asleep and when I awoke I found myself on your site. What...where the hell am I?

(little lord) frankoroy said...

excellent answers all, good sir. i tip my hat to you.

also, i meant to remark the other day: did the photo of the previous chap from Fri., Nov. 2nd ("The Balding Mustache") remind anyone else of paul giamatti? perhaps it's an ancestor....

Here is another, my great great grandpa. He was stylin'! And oddly well known. My uncle Kevin looks like his incarnate, identical! Great post. Stache power!

Thomas Nevin said...

Hello fellow traveller! Great to see another 19th century Blogger working with images. Check out Tasmanian Photographer Thomas Nevin at his weblog, and his self-portrait with abundant moustache, beard and sideburns, which apparently were all bright red (born in Ireland, of course!) ca. 1871 at:

Burton Newall said...

I do not understand, sir. You write that the best mustache grooming products are illegal.

What could surpass the tradition half-and-half mixure of beeswax and petroleum jelly, I ask you?
