A Formidable Nietzsche



While mustaches this full were occasionally grown to cover up the sort of severe lip injuries common in the Crimean War, I think the hastily retied neck wear belies this gentleman's success with the ladies. Perhaps a tryst with the photomixing girl in the congreve closet...

hi! BIG fan of the site, love it love it love. but, you know, this is one of those long-time listener, first-time caller sorta deals...

i know your site is nominally dedicated to the 19th century trends in facial hair fashions, but i was watching the oscars and it occurred to me you could do an analysis of the correlation between facial hair and nominations... or even just a look into the various impressive moustaches of the silver screen.

i mean, Daniel Day Lewis just won for best actor, and i attribute it all to his ability to grow a fine, impressively dense, thoroughly convincing moustache. (look at his filmography! the proof is in the diversity and frequency of his moustachio'd roles!)

think about it...
