History’s Most Underrated Moustaches

In the last decade or so, facial hair has made a huge comeback. For a while, the clean-shaven pretty boy was the look to have, but now the rugged man, the scruffy man, and even the fully bearded man has returned to prominence. Still, the moustache sits out on the fringe, waiting to return to its former Burt Reynolds-era glory. There are those trying to bring it back (Paul F. Tompkins, John Hodgman, Darren Aronofsky) but gone are the days where the moustache makes the man; here are the days where the moustache gets you on a special government list. I long for the return of the hair-lipped glory; the return of the under-nose-caterpillar. The moustache is the prodigal son of body hair, and when it comes we shall roast our best calf to celebrate. We all know the Tom Sellecks, Frank Zappas, and Friedrich Nietzsches, but for now, let’s enjoy some of history’s most underrated ‘stashes.

    I agree with this list completely and I love all the mustaches involved. It’s such a shame that nowadays only cops and ironic hipster douchebags have mustaches.

    I think Josef Polsudski, Joseph Stalin, and Michel Micombero (from the diminutive country of Burundi) have perhaps the best dictator ‘staches. But all in all, a good list.
